Contacting the visitors' service

We offer organized groups of 10 to 50 persons the opportunity to visit the main Ministry building in Berlin’s Mitte district.

Visitors’ service staff will be glad to inform your group about the organization, work and major tasks of the Ministry (in German).

You will also have a chance to discuss current interior policy issues

We host up to four such group visits nearly every day, at 9:00, 11:00, 14:00 and 16:00, each lasting about 90 minutes.
We are unfortunately unable to offer tours of the Ministry building, but the Ministry does offer tours during the Federal Government’s annual Open Day.

Security assessments indicate that because of the nature of its tasks and functions, the Federal Ministry of the Interior faces a high level of general threat. For this reason, all persons at the Ministry require a similarly high level of protection.

All visitors not personally known at the Ministry must be registered in advance. Your personal data are used only for the purpose of your visit to the Ministry and are forwarded to the Federal Police, where they are checked and deleted immediately after your visit.

We look forward to your visit!
