Dear visitors,

Unfortunately, the Haus am Waldsee currently offers only limited accessibility.

Please note the following information for visitors in wheelchairs or with walkers.

Up to July 2024, there will be an extensive construction site on Argentinische Allee in front of our building: Parking is available in the direction of Fischerhüttenstraße / U-Bahn Krumme Lanke. From there you can reach us in a few minutes walk.

Access to the sculpture park:

You can reach our park on the right through the garden hall, where you will also find our café (what3words: admit.daylight.poem). You may find a locked double door here. As there is a steep incline on the left side of the building, we recommend going through the café to access the garden.

Access to the exhibition:

You can reach the exhibition via a lift, which is located on the left side of the house (what3words: rifled.burn.graceful). Please press the bell at the lift so that our front desk team can activate the lift. As this leads directly into the exhibition, the bell must be rung before use for safety reasons. Access to both exhibition floors is possible via the lift. Please note the restricted turning circle in front of the lift on the ground floor and the restricted turning circle on the first floor.

Wheelchair accessible toilet:

Access to the wheelchair accessible toilet in the basement is also possible via the lift. The door of the lift remains open automatically as long as you are in the toilet premises. Your privacy is guaranteed this way – the lift remains closed to others.


We are aware of the deficiencies regarding accessibility and are currently working on improvements.

Planned changes include:

·      Wayfinding signage

·      Automated café doors

·      Acoustic announcements in the lift for people with visual impairments

·      Improved entrance for wheelchair users

·      Easy language texts on website

·      Tactile guidance system for people with visual impairments
