Preparing your visit

After you have well prepared your visit to one of the departments of the Landesarchiv, you will find the opening hours of the reading rooms on the internet. In order to become a user, you have to register in an Neuanmeldung online form (only available in German). You can do this at the archival department or at home. Having obtained the permission at the reading room desk you can have a look at all the finding aids of the records which are relevant for your research. If you need help, an archivist will advise you. You are allowed to use your private laptop. Reading devices for microfilms, microfiches and macrofiches are provided.
