Specific Accessibility Info for CTM 2019

Wheelchair/Reduced Mobility

Please also note that all CTM venues (with the exception of Studio 1 at Kunstquartier Bethanien, Griessmuehle Room 2, and Paloma Bar) are wheelchair accessible. Venue staff can be asked for help with regards to mobility and elevator usage. The CTM exhibition opening (on Friday 25.1.) is traditionally very full, which may also present mobility problems for wheelchair users.

We offer free access for an accompanying person for holders of a ”Schwerbehinderten Ausweis mit Kategorie B” card. Please get in touch with us in advance to make arrangements. Likewise, if you are unable to pick up your pass at Kunstquartier Bethanien, please get in touch with us.

Handicapped parking spaces can be found near HAU1 and HAU2 – more information and exact locations are available via their accessibility sections locations (both in German and in English).

Persons taking public transit may check the current status of elevators at the subway stops nearest each venue, via the BVG (both in German and English). The CTM Venue Map is also available online.

Strobes will be in use at the following events:
