Our program

The Visitor Center is reopening on June 28th 2021

Experience and discover the world of BASF - you can do it again from Monday, June 28th, 2021., when the Visitor Center reopens again. According to the current Corona rules, the number of visitors is limited in order to be able to comply with the prescribed distance and hygiene rules.

The exhibition is accessible within a defined time frame after prior registration. The interactive exhibits are operated to a limited extent, some areas are blocked. Guided tours in the classic sense are not offered for the time being. However, after a brief introduction, visitors have the opportunity to discover the exhibition themselves. In addition, around one-hour tours of the factory are offered twice a day for adults and children from the age of six (in German language only).

For all offers of the Visitor Center a pre-registration under the link below is required. The contact details are recorded via the Luca App, a negative Corona test is not required for the visit. Guests are asked to wear a medical mask (surgical- or FFP2-mask) during their entire stay in the house and during the site tour.
