Recommendations for participants – participate safely

We have all grown accustomed to social distancing and hygiene rules. Also during the Book Fair, we ask you to consider the following recommendations:

Icon Mund-Nasen-Schutz

Keep your distance

Where possible, keep your distance from other people and avoid crowding situations.


Mouth-nose protection

Whenever crowding situations cannot be consistently avoided, wear a mouth-nose protection indoors.
Depending on how the infection situation develops and which regulations apply in autumn, the rules for wearing a mask will be adjusted accordingly.


Considerate behaviour

Sneeze or cough into the crook of your arm and turn away from other people. Please avoid shaking hands and other forms of physical contact. Make sure to wash your hands regularly and thoroughly. Use hand disinfectant if necessary.


If you fall ill, then please stay at home

If you have any symptoms which could indicate a Covid-19 infection, please refrain from visiting the Book Fair.


Ticket sales & access control

Buy your ticket online or redeem your voucher online in advance to avoid queues and crowds in the ticket office areas.


Prevention through testing and vaccination

With precautionary and regular self-testing for the SARS-CoV-2 virus, you minimise the risk for yourself and others.
The same applies to a coronavirus vaccination, which minimises the risks of a severe course of the disease, as well as the risk of infection for yourself and others.
