Terms and Conditions

Who’s organizing the competition?

The competition is organized by the Deutsches Historisches Museum Foundation.

Who can take part?

People who are at least 18 years of age on entering the competition are eligible to take part. Employees of the Deutsches Historisches Museum are excluded from entering the competition.

How and when can I take part?

The competition is open from 1 June at 10 a.m. until 31 October 6 p.m. To enter, participants must post a photo of themselves on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram taken at the indicated photo points located on the forecourt of the exhibition hall or by the mirrors located in the washrooms in the Zeughaus. Be sure to make the post publicly accessible and include the hashtag #DHM30 By entering the prize draw, entrants explicitly acknowledge these conditions of participation.

What can I win?

During the period of the prize draws, every day five winners will be entitled to free entry, while two free passes for the Deutsches Historisches Museum will be up for grabs each week.

The winnings will not be paid out in cash nor is it possible for prizes to be exchanged.

When and how are the winners decided?

The winners are decided from all entries submitted. The decision will not be made in public. For all entries in the daily draw, the winners will be the first five people to show their entry to staff at the ticket office. For those participating in the weekly draw, every week one winner will be selected based on the best entry posted that week.

How do competition winners find out?

Participants for the daily draw should show their entry at the ticket office in the Zeughaus, where (if they’re one of the first five that day) they’ll be informed straightaway and given free entry to the Deutsches Historisches Museum.

We will message winners of the weekly draw directly via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to inform them of their prize. The prize will be sent by post. If the winner doesn’t reply to the message within 14 days, they lose their claim to the prize. The Deutsches Historisches Museum Foundation accepts no liability for prizes lost in the post.

What happens to my data?

Personal data (Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram profile names, entrants’ names and addresses) will be used solely for determining winning entries and sending out prizes. The data will not be used for any other purpose or given to third parties.

Other provisions:

The judges’ decision is final. The competition is in no way affiliated with Facebook, Twitter or Instagram, nor is it in any way sponsored, supported, or organized by Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram will not be the recipients of the information provided by competition entrants, but rather the Deutsches Historisches Museum as the operator of its own Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page.

The organizers reserve the right to change, modify, and terminate the competition at any stage without prior notice or explanation.
