Coronavirus: notice for visitors to the Bundesbank

To limit the spread of the coronavirus, we are reducing visitor access to the Bundesbank’s premises to an absolute minimum. Non-Bank personnel should therefore preferably be contacted by email, telephone or video conference.

In the rare event that you physically need to visit the Bundesbank, you are urgently requested to heed the following information when planning your visit:

If you display symptoms that indicate you may have been infected with the coronavirus and/or you have tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days and/or you have encountered someone with a confirmed case of coronavirus within the last 14 days (e.g. a red risk warning on your Corona Warn-App), you are prohibited from visiting the Bundesbank’s premises.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), being infected with the coronavirus can cause the following symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Coughing
  • Runny nose or sneezing
  • Loss of smell or taste
  • Breathing difficulties

If you have to visit the Bundesbank, please note that, besides adhering to the distancing and hygiene rules, you are required to wear a medical mask over your nose and mouth in all communal areas and in the corridors/lifts etc. of the Bundesbank’s buildings.

As of 6 April 2021, all visitors who enter the Bundesbank’s premises and may come into contact with Bundesbank staff there are required to take a coronavirus self-test at the Bundesbank or present an equivalent and current certificate issued by their employer or an authorised test provider (see, for example, the reference lists provided by the RKI, the German federal states or similar) in German that is not more than two days old. Couriers and delivery personnel as well as fully vaccinated and genesis (upon presentation of appropriate proof) are exempt. If necessary, the Bundesbank will provide self-tests free of charge. For more information, please get in touch with the unit with which you have been in contact regarding your visit.
