The foyer of Hamburg Planetarium is level and wheelchair-accessible. The Sternensaal and the viewing platform are also wheelchair-accessible. If you have difficulty walking or use a wheelchair, you may use the disabled parking spaces directly behind the Planetarium. To do so, please drive to the Linnering car park, then turn left to the barrier. Please press the buzzer and we will let you in.
For wheelchair users there are specially designated places in the Sternensaal. Please use our telephone booking service: +49 (0)40 428 865210 or choose the designated places online.
