Dear Users,

In light of the current situation, the Institute must mitigate the consequences of escalating energy prices with measures that require the understanding and cooperation of the whole community.
For this reason – and also in compliance with municipal and regional regulations, as well as those of the Max-Planck Society – the KHI has implemented the following measures: heating is currently reduced to specific time slots and the maximum temperature cannot exceed 19 degrees.

We thank you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience.


Please note that section Za (auction catalogs) of the Library will not be accessible for an extended period.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
