Accessibility

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum would like to enable a carefree visit to the museum for as many visitors as possible. However, at its current location at Fasanenstraße 24, the house cannot follow DIN 18040-1 due to the structural conditions. Unfortunately, the house is not barrier-free.

Information on transport connections

The nearest barrier-free subway station with a wheelchair-accessible entrance is the Uhlandstraße station on the U1 line.

Parking spaces are rare around the Käthe Kollwitz Museum and are subject to a fee.

The Käthe Kollwitz Museum does not have barrier-free access. There are three steps down to the entrance and another step up to the ticket office. The service team will be happy to assist you with these steps.

The exhibition rooms are spread over four floors and are accessible only by stairs. The building does not have an elevator. The restroom is located on the second floor.

Mobile seating can be borrowed free of charge at the ticket office.
For blind and visually impaired visitors, tactile room maps are available at the ticket office.

Three major works by Käthe Kollwitz can be experienced tactilely. The tactile models are located on the first and second floors — each at the original artwork — and are marked on the tactile room plan.

An audio guide can be borrowed at the ticket counter.

Website

With our website we strive to follow the regulation BITV 2.0 from 2011, so that our information is accessible for people with disabilities. Screen reader programs can be used to capture our screen content and output it in Braille either with synthetic speech via the sound card or via a connected Braille line.

We are seeking to expand our offerings for a barrier-free experience of the exhibitions and events. We welcome your suggestions and comments.
