Due to structural conditions, the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf is not fully accessible. We have compiled the following information to assist with your visit. If you have any further questions, please contact Claudia Paulus by email at or by phone at +49 (0)211 54 23 77 10.

The Kunsthalle Düsseldorf sees itself as a cultural institution for everyone. We are actively working to make our institution inclusive. The structural barriers will be addressed by the City of Düsseldorf with the renovation of the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf in 2025 to enable inclusive, equal, and independent participation of all people in line with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
Handicapped parking spaces are located near the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf on Grabbeplatz and on Ratinger Straße. The sidewalks are paved with cobblestones. The closest public transport stop is the subway station Heinrich-Heine-Allee. From there, follow Bolkerstraße via Mutter-Ey-Straße to reach the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf. There is no guidance system in the historical city center.
There is a bathroom on the second floor of the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, which can also be reached by visitors in wheelchairs via a short but steep ramp. The door can be difficult to open, and the assistance of a staff member is required.
Admission for severely disabled people, including accompanying persons, is free of charge.
Assistance dogs are allowed.
Medication bags are allowed.
The current exhibition The Inescapable Intertwining of All Lives (24 June to 17 September 2023) includes depictions of nudity. In addition, a trigger warning applies to works that deal with sexual traumas and violence.
An introductory wall text in German, English, and simple German is available in the foyer on the first floor. Short texts about the participating artists in German, English, and simple German are available in the exhibition flyer. The exhibition flyer and texts in simple German language are also digitally available on our website.
An audio guide in German can be accessed via QR code using your own mobile device.
People with Limited Mobility
Visiting the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf independently requires overcoming barriers. This begins in the surrounding area with the cobblestones in the historical city center.
Due to the lack of a ramp, access to the ground floor of the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf for people with wheelchairs or strollers is very difficult or impossible.
People with wheelchairs or strollers can alert the staff by using a doorbell located to the left of the entrance at the base of the stairs. They will then be guided to the elevator at the back of the building. This elevator provides access to the exhibition spaces on the first and second floors. The staff will also assist visitors in changing floors.
The exhibition spaces themselves do not include steps.
During your visit, a wheelchair and folding stools are available for use inside the building. Benches are also available in the stairwell.
As part of the current exhibition The Inescapable Intertwining of All Lives, there is a reading area with upholstered furniture in the foyer on the first floor.
Blind and Visually Impaired People
Visiting the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf independently requires overcoming barriers.
No navigation or guidance system is available in surrounding area or inside the building. The stairs inside the building can be walked under, posing an increased risk of accidents. Therefore, we recommend visiting the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf with a companion.
We offer an acoustic tour in German language for each changing exhibition, which is aimed at blind, visually impaired, and sighted people alike. In this dialogical format, we put art into words and approach the content of the exhibition in a joint conversation. Please check the calendar on our website for the date of the acoustic tour for the current exhibition.
People Who Are Deaf or Hard of Hearing
The works by Gisela McDaniel include sound, but there is no transcript.
By using portable induction loops in conjunction with our audio tour guide system, hearing aid users can also participate in guided tours. Simply activate the T-coil on your hearing aid. Consult your audiologist for further information.
For each changing exhibition, we regularly offer a guided tour in German language translated into German Sign Language. Please refer to the calendar on our website for the date of the tour for the current exhibition.
We encourage you to contact us if you encounter unexpected barriers during your visit. You can speak directly to the staff at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf or contact Joshua Pesch-Ulonska by phone at +49 (0)211 54 23 77 15 or by email at . We will carefully document your feedback.
The documentation created with your help and in collaboration with those affected will be given special attention by the City of Düsseldorf during the renovation of the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf in 2025, which aims to remove structural barriers in particular. The Diversity Working Group at the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf is continuously striving to create inclusive offerings. We are grateful for any suggestions you have.
The Kunsthalle Düsseldorf does not have a collection and presents changing exhibitions. This results in additional hurdles in the implementation of accessibility measures that need to be considered.
