As of tomorrow, 24 November 2021, the old permanent exhibition will be closed - five days earlier than anticipated due to the new regional pandemic lockdown. It has been open for over 22 years and has been visited by almost 3.3 million people. Dokumentation Obersalzberg will now stay closed for a longer period of time, while the previous exhibition building is being converted into a learning center and the new exhibition is being set up in the new building.

Due to current developments, the 2G regulation (vaccinated or recovered) and FFP2 mask requirements will apply to us from November 6th.

The Dokumentation Obersalzberg building will be converted into a learning center. The current permanent exhibition will therefore open for the last time on Sunday, 28 November. The new exhibition will be opened in the future in the new building.
