The Kunsthalle’s buildings are historical, and therefore, present certain obstacles for mobility-impaired people. We have come up with solutions to help you get round these constraints and are constantly striving to make further improvements, so that people with special requirements feel comfortable during their stay.

We are glad to take special preparations in advance of your visit. Please get in touch with the Information Service via E-mail or by calling 0721 926 33 70.
