On this page you will find information about accessibility in the Old Gasometer.

Disabled parking

Disabled parking is available in the large municipal car park in front of the Old Gasometer and is signposted accordingly. Two further disabled parking spaces are available in the kleine Biergasse.

Accessible WC

The barrier-free toilet is located on the ground floor of the Vereinshaus. It can be reached from the foyer of the Old Gasometer via the lift. The light in the toilet works by motion detector.

Accompanying persons at events

It is possible for severely disabled people with a “B” in their ID card to bring an accompanying person to events. This person does not have to pay admission. However, prior registration via our ticket shop is necessary.

Discounts

Our ticket prices are always subject to the principle of cultural participation and not profit maximisation. You can find out whether ticket reductions also exist for an event on the respective event pages.

People with limited mobility

Die Räume des Alten Gasometers sind für Rollstuhlfahrer*innen barrierefrei und jeweils ebenerdig erreichbar.

In den Saal gelangt man über den Foyer-Eingang (Glasbau). Dort befindet sich im hinteren Bereich ein Fahrstuhl.

There are also spaces for wheelchair users in the hall. A WC suitable for disabled persons is located in the clubhouse.

The bell at the entrance to the clubhouse is at a low height. It is therefore also accessible from a wheelchair.

As there is a historic staircase in the entrance area of the Vereinshaus, access is via the foyer (glass building) and there via the lift, which has exits to the floors of the Vereinshaus.

The lift provides access to the hall, the youth club, the offices, the consultation room, the ticket shop, the backstage, the disabled toilet and the multi-purpose room.

Wenn das Foyer geschlossen sein sollte oder Hilfe benötigt wird, bitte am Eingang des Vereinshauses klingeln.

If the foyer should be closed or help is needed, please ring the bell at the entrance to the clubhouse.

People with hearing impairment

We offer special services for people with hearing impairments at some events. For example, there are sign language interpreters or films with subtitles and audio description. We provide information about the respective options on the event pages in the programme.

People with visual impairments

For people with visual impairments, we offer special services at some events. For example, there are also films with audio description. We provide information on the respective options on the event pages in the programme.

Emergency situations

In emergency situations, such as a fire alarm, our staff are instructed to show special consideration for people with disabilities and to help them leave the building via the fire escape, for example.

We continue to work on the topic of accessibility and low barriers and already have many ideas for a more inclusive offer in the Old Gasometer. That’s why this section of the website is constantly being updated and expanded. So it’s worth taking a look every now and then.
