Current regulations

Visits by sick relatives and accompaniment to outpatient appointments are possible to a limited extent.

Stricter visiting regulations may apply in individual areas and thus possibly lead to rejection in the target area. Therefore, if possible, visitors should consult with their hospitalized relatives prior to a visit.

In order to ensure the greatest possible safety for patients and employees, visiting opportunities are clearly limited and strictly monitored by the staff of the University Hospital.

External persons are required to wear an FFP2 mask. Please bring your own mask and wear it throughout your stay at the hospital.

Please note that a negative rapid antigen test for admission to the hospital is valid for 24 hours, a negative PCR test for 48 hours.

Corona test sites

Health check and contact details registration

There are two official Corona citizen testing sites on the grounds of the University Hospital. A negative rapid antigen test has a validity of 24 hours, a negative PCR test 48 hours.

Main entrance Crona Kliniken, Hoppe-Seyler-Straße 3, 72076 Tübingen.

Opening hours are daily from 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Alte Universitäts-Apotheke, Räntgenweg 9, 72076 Tübingen

Opening hours are daily from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Admission checks will be discontinued as of May 1, 2022. Self-disclosure and a query about vaccination status will therefore no longer be required at admission.

A check of immunization evidence or current test evidence might be done at the destination (e.g. at the ward).


All patients, inpatients as well as outpatients, are subject to the 3G rule; they must either have proof of complete immunization, recovery or negative testing - this also applies to children 6 years and older. The student ID card is valid as proof of testing for them. Please note that in the Children's Hospital other admission and visiting regulations apply.

Non-immunized, outpatients bring the certificate of a Corona test. A check of the test evidence or the immunization status might be done at the destination (e.g. ward).

Masks are mandatory in the entire hospital; patients wear either a mouth-nose protection or an FFP2 mask. Please bring your own mask if possible.

  • Inpatients (also in the pediatric clinic) are tested on admission to the ward.
  • If therapies that are not medically urgent have to be postponed, affected patients are 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 to inquire about their health status.
  • Patients will be admitted to the hospital buildings no earlier than 45 minutes prior to their appointment. As few people as possible shall be in the waiting areas at all times. Patients should leave the clinic quickly after their treatment appointment.
  • There are currently no open consultation hours at Tübingen University Hospital: Patients can only come to the clinic by appointment or as an emergency.

Tübingen University Hospital has established the following procedure to protect its patients and employees:

Certificates presented at the hospital entrances exempting patients from wearing mouth-nose protection (MNS) are again examined by a specialist.

Whether the wearing of an MNS can then actually be dispensed with for health reasons is decided within the framework of this medical case-by-case examination by the physicians responsible for COVID in the respective clinics and departments on site in the entrance area. They determine whether access to the hospital can be granted without a mask.

Accompanying persons

Patients may be accompanied by a person (in the pediatric clinic by a parent) during emergencies and outpatient appointments in medically necessary cases. Escorts that are not medically necessary are not permitted. Please note that in the Pediatric Clinicother regulations apply.

It is mandatory to wear an FFP2 mask: Please bring your own mask and wear it during your entire stay at the hospital.

Medical reasons for escort are

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

Each patient may receive several visitors per day, but no more than two visitors at the same time. Children are not included in this number.

frontend.sr-only_#{element.contextual_1.children.icon}: Visits are possible every day between 12 noon and 7 pm. The duration of the visit is not restricted within the visiting hours.

frontend.sr-only_#{element.contextual_1.children.icon}: In individual, sensitive ward areas (e.g. intensive care units, oncology, hematology, geriatrics), more extensive restrictions on visiting hours may apply.

  • Visiting persons are only permitted access to the clinic with a current negative test certificate. This proof must be provided irrespective of the immunization status (i.e. despite booster vaccination or recent recovery or complete vaccination series). Negative test evidence is required for each visit and might be verified at the target area if necessary. Corona testing sites are located on the hospital campus.

NUM Logo

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 researching 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 made to the optimized handling of future pandemics (keyword Pandemic Preparedness).
