Current regulations

Visits of sick relatives and accompanying them to outpatient appointments are possible to a limited extent. Each patient may receive a maximum of one visitor per day.
In order to ensure the greatest possible safety for patients and staff, the possibilities for visits are clearly limited for the time being and will be strictly monitored by the staff of the University Hospital.

Contact details registration

For the purpose of providing information to the public health department or the local police, the clinic is obliged under §§16 and 25 lfSG to collect and store the contact details of visitors, accompanying persons and other external persons.

At all clinic entrances, we offer the option of submitting the required contact data via the Luca app. Alternatively, contact details can be left by analogue means (in writing).

We recommend the use of the Luca app for fast-track admission.

  • skilled craftsmen and technical personnel, field staff and fitters
  • taxi services, male and female drivers, male and female suppliers
  • external guests such as job applicants, pharmaceutical sales representatives
  • representatives of public authorities
  • members of self-help groups, support associations and volunteers
  • external therapeutic personnel
  • external meeting participants and lecturers
  • etc.


Measures for the protection of patients and employees:

  • Treatments take place as planned. If therapies that are not medically urgent have to be postponed in individual cases, affected patients will be informed proactively and in good time by the clinic. Calls by patients are not necessary.
  • The University Hospital contacts all patients by telephone the day before their appointment and inquires about their state of health.
  • Patients are admitted to the clinic buildings at the earliest 45 minutes before their appointment. There should always be as few people as possible in the waiting areas. Patients should leave the clinic quickly after their treatment appointment.
  • Currently there are no open consultation hours at the University Hospital of Tübingen: Patients can only come to the hospital with an appointment or as an emergency.
  • All patients who come to the hospital as outpatients or inpatients will receive a simple mouth-and-nose protector from the hospital at the entrances/gates. This must be worn permanently in the hospital.
  • A sufficient distance of at least 1.5m must be maintained at all times. For this reason, the waiting areas in the hospital have been completely redesigned and the registrations have been reorganised where possible.

The University Hospital of Tübingen has established the following procedure for the protection of its patients and staff:

Certificates presented at the clinic entrances for exemption from wearing a mouth and nose protector (MNS) are again examined by a specialist.

Whether for health reasons the wearing of an MNS can be waived, will be decided in the context of this medical individual case examination by the COVID responsible physicians of the respective hospitals and departments on site in the entrance area. These determine whether access to the hospital can be granted without a mask.


Accompanying persons

Patients are allowed to be accompanied by a person during emergencies and outpatient appointments in urgent cases. 

Medical reasons for an escort are

  • physical or cognitive limitations
  • language barriers
  • complex diagnostic and therapeutic discussions.



From Thursday, August 26, 2021, visits by sick relatives at Tübingen University Hospital will again be possible to a greater extent - albeit on a limited basis.

Visits are possible daily between 1 and 6 pm

Visitors must still register with their contact details and complete a questionnaire before the visit. This is done at the entrance control.

The following visiting regulations apply:

  • Visiting persons must always be fully vaccinated, recovered or tested.
  • A negative rapid antigen test is valid for admission to the hospital for 24 hours, a negative PCR test for 48 hours.
  • There is no longer a maximum number of visiting persons per day, but a maximum of one visiting person may be with the sick relative
  • In the Children's Hospital, in deviation from the general visiting regulations, several visiting persons are permitted at the same time, so that both parents can visit the sick child.
  • Visitors must always observe the distance rules during their stay at the clinic and wear a medical mouth/nose protection. This will be handed out at the entrances.

Please note that further restrictions on visiting hours and the number of persons may apply in individual, sensitive ward areas (e.g. intensive care units, oncology, hematology, geriatrics).

There is still a ban on visiting people,
  • who have symptoms of a respiratory infection or elevated temperature
  • Who have had contact with someone with Covid-19 or an unrefuted suspected case in the past 14 days; or
  • who have themselves been sick with Covid-19 in the past four weeks or who have been suspected of having the disease that has not been proven to be refuted.

on the current coronavirus cases at Tübingen University Hospital

Corona Live Ticker

Currently conducted Covid-19 studies at the University Hospital of Tübingen:

The studies mentioned here are a selection of the corona studies performed at the hospital.

The Clinic for Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine is participating in a new observational study that examines the effectiveness of preventive, self-executed corona tests.

Pupils and teaching staff of the Geschwister-Scholl-School and the Dorfacker- und Köstlinschule in Tübingen have the opportunity to perform a corona test independently from home by means of a throat swab.

The results of the pilot project should show whether such preventive testing can contribute to a safe school operation during the corona virus pandemic in order to avoid possible school closures.

From the summer holidays to the autumn holidays, all participants in the study can take the test several times and free of charge.
Participation in the study is voluntary, the test kits are provided by Centogene.

The University Medicine Network

In order to strengthen and bundle know-how and resources in researching and combating Covid-19, the BMBF is funding the establishment of the Network University Medicine (NUM), which is coordinated by the Charité and encompasses the entire German university medicine.

Within the framework of the NUM, the participating university hospitals are investigating very different aspects of Covid-19 in twelve projects. Due to the cooperative, structure-building character of the projects and activities of the network, an important contribution is thus being made to the optimised handling of future pandemics (keyword Pandemic Preparedness).
