Accessibility

Haus der Kunst welcomes everyone. Accessibility is just as important to us as a diverse educational program that enables different visitors to understand and access our exhibitions on site and digitally. Therefore, for several years now, Haus der Kunst has offered guided tours in the museum.

In addition to this, we have also produced digital educational offers for some exhibitions, which we present to you here:

For individual visitors, we offer audio description texts as part of the audio guides. These are literal descriptions of the artworks. We also offer these audio description texts as a digital audio tour free of charge online, so that you can listen to the tour from home.

Audio tour through the exhibition "Michael Armitage. Paradise Edict"

Audio tour through the exhibiton "Franz Erhard Walther. Shifting Perspectives"

Audio tour through the exhibition "Theaster Gates. Black Chapel"

Audio tour through the exhibition "Interiorities. Njideka Akunyili Crosby, Leonor Antunes, Henrike Naumann, Adriana Varejão"

As a new service, we are also offering a digital guided tour in German sign language and thus, for the first time, an online insight into the exhibition "Franz Erhard Walther. Shifting Perspectives" in German sign language.

Orientation for blind people and people with visual handicaps

The Haus der Kunst does not have a guidance system. We recommend coming with an accompanied person. Guide dogs are allowed.


Offers for people with learning difficulties

For people with learning difficulties, we offer texts in Simple language in some exhibitions. The aim of Simple language is to be very understandable and follows a clear set of rules. Texts in Simple Language are checked for understandability by the target group before publication


The visit for people with special needs and wheelchair

The entrance to the museum is located on Prinzregenstraße and is accessible via a ramp. The ramp is 100 metres from the Königinstraße bus stop.
Two disabled parking spaces are located behind the Haus der Kunst. The access road is between the Eisbach and the Haus der Kunst. We recommend coming accompanied to cover the distance from the car park to the entrance.
A wheelchair as well as portable stools can be borrowed free of charge at the ticket office.
A lift provides access to all floors. The museum shop and the Golden Bar café are on the same level as the entrance hall.
Wheelchair accessible toilets are located on the ground floor.
Detailed information on the width of stairs, lifts and the ramp can be found in our audit report of the "Reisen für alle" system, which surveyed the accessibility of the Haus der Kunst in 2017. Only available in German language.
