These guided tours are carried out according to a protection concept which was developed and implemented on the basis of the recommendations of the Association of Museums in Switzerland VMS. In addition to adhering to the central hygiene measures, it is important for you to know that a group of visitors may not comprise more than 15 people. This includes children and guides.
