FAQ

CAN I BRING MY ELECTRONIC MEDICAL DEVICES AND FOOD FOR MEDICATION?

Visitors who need to bring electronic medical devices and/or medically necessary food/beverages into the exhibition should notify invigilators at the exhibition entrances.

You may be asked to transfer your belongings to a clear plastic bag available at the entrance, should your bag exceed the maximum size permitted in the exhibition (33 × 23 × 10 cm).

IS THERE SPECIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE DURING VISITS AND WALKS?

Visitors who require special assistance during exhibition visits and/or walks are invited to notify in advance the Visitor Service and/or the member of the Chorus conducting the walk.

Visitors with visual impairments who would like to participate in a walk are invited to notify the Visitor Service before booking so they can be accompanied by an especially trained Chorus member.

HOW DO I MOVE TO AND BETWEEN VENUES AND WHAT TRANSPORT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?

Public transport routes connect exhibition venues within the city and Kassel Airport. Most trams and busses are accessible for wheelchairs with DIN specifications. For further information on public transport services in Kassel, please see here.

Most venues are within an approximate distance of 10–15 minutes by wheelchair. As the city of Kassel is hilly, many of the routes connecting the venues do have slight, others moderate, inclines. You may benefit from assistance pushing your wheelchair or from the use of an electric wheelchair.

In the inner part of the city, many bus and tram stops have an orientation system for the visually impaired. More detailed information about the system can be found here.

Please find information on inclines, weather shelters, and places to rest on this map.

WHERE DO I FIND ACCESSIBLE TOILETS?
