Visit us!

We offer groups of 10 to 50 persons the opportunity to visit the main ministry building in central Berlin. 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 such group visits nearly every day, at 10:00 and 14:00, each lasting about 90 minutes.

We are unfortunately unable to offer tours of the ministry building, but the ministry does participate in the Federal Government’s annual Open Day.
