Accessibility Information

The Klosterruine Berlin is the ruin of a former monastery church. Public transportation to the site includes U-Bahn (U2 Klosterstraße; U8, U5, S5, S7, S75 Alexanderplatz) and Bus (248 Littenstraße). There is parking [which is 20 to 150 meters from the entrance]. The closest subway station “Klosterstraße” is approximately 50 meters from the site, however, the station is not wheelchair accessible. The bus station “Littenstraße” is approximately 200 meters from the site. From Alexanderplatz, the Klosterruine is a ten-minute walk by foot. The main entrance is nine steps below street level. Once inside, there are four levels that are connected by stairs. Seating at the site includes three benches, as well as the steps ascending to the left and right of the main naval of the church. The ruin has no roof and, when it rains, the steps and the floor can be slippery.
The ruin is wheelchair accessible through the side gate on the south side of the Klosterruine. The gate is open 10am - 6pm. The gate is approximately 30 meters from the street and can be found by following a tiled path to the right of the main entrance. Three ramps connect three of the four levels of the Klosterruine, though be advised that they are steep and will likely require assistance with going up and down. There are staff members on-site that can  assist you. Staff can also provide information on the history of the ruins and on the exhibition.
Due to the current COVID-19 situation, only 50 people are allowed in the space at any given moment. The ruins have only one full standing wall, with open windows, and no ceiling, so it is open-air. We also recommend wearing masks.
