Children under age 16 don’t need a certificate but may need to show their ID or passport to verify the age. Children between the ages of 12 to 15 need to wear a mask (read Covid protection concept from ProCinema 26.06.2021). For everybody unter 12 years old, Fantoche highly recommends wearing a mask to minimize the risk of infections for all the participants.

Information on how to obtain a Covid certificate can be found on the BAG website.
The following areas are accessible without a certificate. Masks are required and the distance rule applies:
- Infodesk
- Shop

In the «Merker-Innenhof» and other outdoor locations, no certificate is required and masks are not compulsory. This also applies to outdoor Apéros.
The following exhibitions have their own protection concepts from our partners:
- Galerie im Gluri Suter Huus
- Museum Langmatt
- Bagno Popolare
- Reformierte Kirche

Use the provided disinfectant from Soeder.

  • Stay at home if you feel sick.
  • Follow the hygiene rules recommended by the BAG.
  • Stay careful, be gentle, be considerate.

In addition, the use of the “Swiss Covid” app is recommended. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that quarantine may be necessary if close contact with COVID-19 infected persons has occurred.

Tip: Use advance booking and take advantage of the 30-minute admission time to avoid crowds.

Thank you for your understanding.
