Stop by!

We open our doors for you without a winter break from January to December, Thursday - Sunday, 12-5 p.m. (latest entry at 3:45 p.m.). But we are here for you outside business hours, too. Simply contact us!

Opening hours

We are open, even though we have to follow some restrictions due to the pandemic. Online booking for your individual tour is now available. Also you can buy tickets for the public tours in German on the weekends. Individual tours can take place on Thursdays and Fridays, public tours take place on Saturday and Sunday at 1 and 3 p.m. You will find all available dates there . For individual tours pre-boooking is mandatory, for the public tours there may be free places you can buy a ticket for at our front desk.

We are also offering our audioguided tour. You are welcome to bring your own headphones. The audioguides and our headphones are of course sanitized after each use.

Please do not forget your mouth-nose-protection and note the valid contact restrictions depending on the incidences in the district of Görlitz. Starting on July 16th, 2021, mouth-nose-masks will not be mandatory if the incidence is lower than 10, provided the minimum distance of 1.5 m can be maintained. Since we assume that this will not be possible without further ado during the guided tours, the mask requirement for the guided tours will remain until further notice.

Stay healthy and take care of those around you.
See you soon!

For kids

While mom and dad visit the house on a guided tour, our little guests can discover the house on their own with our "Entdeckerbroschüre" in a playful way. Equipped with pen and paper, they can uncover the bigger and smaller secrets of the "pasta steamer" and in the end even build their own steamship. The brochure is currently only available in German language.

The KuBiMobil!

From now on it is even more comfortable to get to the Schminke House! With the ʻKuBiMobil - area meets cultureʻ you can get financial support for the use of public transportation. Thanks to the new mobility project of the Kulturraum Oberlausitz-Niederschlesien the trip only costs 2 € per person. You can even choose your preferred kind of transportation.
