Pergamon Museum Wheelchair Accessibility

  1. 1. Pergamon Museum Wheelchair Accessibility www.sagetraveling.com/berlin-wheelchair-accessible-travel-tips
  2. 2. 4 Star Sage Accessibility The Pergamon museum has fascinating, massive ruins from Greek and Near East excavations. Although only 60% of the museum is step-free, it is definitely worth visiting. The museum is accessed via a bridge over the Spree River, located to the west of the building, which has a wheelchair lift to get up the steps. The neighboring Neues Museum requires a ticket with an entrance time so when you get to the Pergamon Museum, buy a Neues Museum ticket for 2 ½ or 3 hours later. www.sagetraveling.com
  3. 3. Learn about our Berlin accessible trip planning services Is there an accessible entrance? “Yes, the approach to the entrance is from the west side of the building. There is a pedestrian bridge to cross onto the Museum island that has a wheelchair lift to get up 13 steps. There is an intercom at the base of the steps to talk to a staff member. www.sagetraveling.com
  4. 4. When I went there the lift was out of order (which is common in museums throughout Europe), so a staff member led me to a neighboring bridge to the north which had level access. Is the door push/pull, revolving, automated by a button, or motion activated? The door into the museum is located to the right of the steps into the building and is activated by a button. www.sagetraveling.com
  5. 5. • Where is the closest place that cars/taxis can drop-off people? On Am Kupfergraben street across the river to the west of the building • Are there cobblestones or hills leading to the entrance?

  6. 6. • Which parts are not accessible? The Classical Antiquities wing (Rooms 8-19) to the left is accessed via -3 and +7 steps. It’s a shame that the museum has not made the entire exhibit accessible as this would only take a small ramp and a single wheelchair lift. • Are there loaner wheelchairs? Yes www.sagetraveling.com
  7. 7. • Is there an accessible bathroom? Yes. There are 3 steps down to the bathrooms near the coat check and you need to ask a staff member to use the lift.
