FAQ – Accessibility

Is there barrier-free access to the Festspielhaus?
The Festspielhaus HELLERAU can be reached via a concrete ramp on the left side entrance. The front building staff will be happy to answer any questions you may have and/or to register:

As a wheelchair user, am I able to move anywhere in the building?
The entire ground floor is barrier-free. The large hall, the Nancy Spero hall, the Dalcroze hall, the music room, the east side stage and the pasta factory are easily accessible for wheelchair users. You will find a disabled WC on the ground floor, Foyer West.

Is the entrance and exit at the train station “Festspielhaus Hellerau” barrier-free?
It is possible to get on and off the train by using the ramp available on the train. Please note that you have to get in at the first door.
Line 8 runs only partially with low-floor wagons. It may therefore make sense to call DVB in advance to find out which railways are barrier-free. The kerbs are also lowered.
