It doesn’t matter if you are young or old, with a disability or able-bodied: the Wildnis(t)räume are there for everyone! The exhibition is one for all the senses. Over 50 tactile installations invite you to touch, you can smell fragrances and listen to the “sound of nature” through over 30 speakers. There are plenty of seats and sufficient space for wheelchairs and pushchairs. A tactile paving system has been integrated and the content is conveyed in a range of different ways.
Certified by the German project “Travel for All”, the “Wildnis(t)räume” is permitted to bear the “Verified accessibility” seal until the spring of 2021. This means that the exhibition is barrier-free and accessible to people with limited mobility, visual impairment, blind people and people with cognitive impairments, and is partially barrier-free for people with hearing difficulties and deaf people.
The various icons show which requirements are fulfilled for the respective groups. You can find a list of the quality criteria for the respective labelling at www.reisen-fuer-alle.de
General information on barrier-free accessibility:
- The exhibition is part of the “Forum Vogelsang IP” and is accessed via a visitor centre with a sales counter and shop. Several parking spaces can be found some 170 metres away. There are walkways of over 220 metres in length within the visitor centre; seats are provided throughout.
- The “Forum Vogelsang IP”, the visitor centre and all exhibition rooms are wheelchair-accessible via standard ramps and lifts.
- Disabled toilets are located in the visitor centre, in the “Wildnis(t)räume” exhibition and in the nearby restaurant.
- A paving system designed for use with self-aligning wheel technology runs from the nearby bus stop (around 220 metres away) to the visitor centre and through the entire exhibition. Tactile maps aid orientation within the building.
- The key content is conveyed in plain language, in raised print and in Braille. All text and visual depictions have a sufficient level of contrast. Media guides are available to hire free of charge and provide an audio description and translation in German sign language. Mobile amplifiers are also available.
