Dear visitors,

We are pleased to welcome you to the LIMESEUM Ruffenhofen! Due to the current situation, please note the following points for your own protection and that of others:

The museum is only open if the incidence value in the district of Ansbach is below 100. If the incidence is less than 100 and less than 50, please register at short notice by calling 09854/9799242 or sending an e-mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

If the value is less than 50, a visit is possible without registration. In any case, please provide the contact details of one person per household, the number of persons and the period of the visit.

Please only enter the building if you do not have a fever and have not had any contact with people who have contracted COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
Please wear an FFP2 mask in the museum. If you do not have an FFP2 mask with you, you can purchase one from us for €2 for the museum visit.
Please keep a distance of 1.5 m from others.

Please disinfect your hands. There are dispensers with disinfectant in the entrance area, by the cloakroom and at 5 locations in the museum.

For reasons of hygiene, a few stations in the museum cannot be used at present:

- the touch station
- the smelling station
- the dressing station
- the reading corner

We have developed an approximate tour of the museum with red arrows stuck to the floor so that it is easier for you to keep your distance from other visitors.

Drinks and ice cream from our museum café are currently available for you to take away and then enjoy.

Despite the restrictions, we wish you a pleasant stay!
