Discover BASF - Visitor Center

CLOSURE Visitor Center until April 13th 2020!

Taking into account the measures decided by the City of Ludwigshafen, BASF has decided as a precaution to cancel all public BASF events up to and including April 13th (Easter Monday).

The Visitor Center will be closed until April 13th (Easter Monday). During this period, there will be no site tours, guided tours or daily programs.

Open-house Saturday on April 4th will also be cancelled.
