Admission to the DomQuartier is free for disabled guests and their accompanying persons.

Barrier-Free Parking Places

Barrier-Free Access

The DomQuartier was re-built to be barrier-free and accessible insofar as the preservation of historical buildings allows. Guests with limited mobility can explore the DomQuartier in two stages. We would like to point out that the lifts can only be used when accompanied by a DomQuartier staff member, for insurance reasons. Therefore, please notify the cashiers either in the Residence Courtyard or at the Cathedral Museum, where our staff will be happy to assist you.
