Access to the Zeughaus

Due to the construction work on the Schlossplatz, access to the Zeughaus will have to be through the north gate (from the parking lot side). The main entrance is not expected to be accessible until at least the end of September.

Lighting in the Zeughaus

For technical reasons, the shelf lighting on the 1st and 2nd floor of the Zeughaus must urgently be renewed. It will be replaced by emergency lighting until further notice. Regrettably, the emergency lighting does not reach the usual level of brightness. We ask for your understanding for this necessary action.
