The Zoological Research Museum Alexander Koenig

is a research museum of the Leibniz Association


Museum Koenig is a very interesting place to discover nature and provides a wide offering of programs for everyone from families to elementary schools all the way up to universities. Especially with a schoolgroup, the museum can provide an educational experience.

Please keep in mind: nearly all guided tours are conducted in German language only. Tours in French or English languages can be arranged upon request.

Any group arriving more than 15 minutes late cannot be guaranteed its scheduled guided program. Museum guides are not required to wait more than 15 minutes for the arrival of a group.

We suggest that you plan to arrive 15 -30 minutes before your scheduled program.

Please note that if you have a 10:15 a.m. appointment, you will not be permitted to enter the Museum until 10:00 a.m. School classes starting before 10.00 a.m. will meet their teacher in front of the museum on time.
