Public guided visits

You are coming with your family, a small group or on your own and want to take part in a guided visit?

There are several public guided visits in German each week of our permanent exhibition at the Zeitgeschichtliches Forum Leipzig. As a rule, the guided visits run for 60 minutes. There’s no need to book in advance to take part in a public guided visit of the permanent exhibition. Simply register on the day at the Information Desk in the lobby. You can find a detailed schedule of the German guided visits here.


You wish to book a guided visit for a group?

Guided visits of our exhibitions can be booked free of charge for groups of 15 people or more. Please discuss the date, size of the group and your needs with our Visitor Service. Tours of the permanent exhibition generally last 90 minutes. If your group does not speak German, we offer guided visits in English, French, Spanish and Polish. We are happy to address any special needs. If you require an inclusive guided visit, simply contact our Visitor Services in advance.
