Visitors with a Handicap

Königstein Fortress ensures that people with a Handicap will enjoy their stay by providing:

  • free parking at the entrance of the fortress (with a pass)
  • a concessionary admission price and free admission for one accompanying person
  • free admission for an accompanying dog or a guide dog for the blind
  • easy access with a lift
  • a 1.7 km tour along the outer wall with mostly sufficient room to move and many viewpoints
  • signposted routes for wheelchair users
  • most of the exhibitions are accessible without steps
  • Audioguide in nine languages (German, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Russian, Spanish, Czech)
  • toilets are also suitable for disabled people

We recommend that wheelchair users are accompanied by another person as the historic fortress architecture includes uneven routes and slopes. A tour map which includes an overview of routes which are difficult or unsuitable for wheelchairs is available (in German) especially for wheelchair users.
