Information for visitorsBarrier-free access
The “Centre of Antiquity” consists of many different historic buildings, so the situation in terms of barrier-free access varies from place to place.
The Porta Nigra
The exhibition areas on the upper floors are accessed via stairs. The forecourt of the Porta Nigra is accessible via ramps, with a change of surface from interlocking paving stones to asphalt. There is barrier-free access to the threshold of the Porta Nigra via a ramp.
The outside area is accessible both above and below ground via various steps with ramps in some places, and the viewing tower in the outside area is equipped with a lift. The entrance and exhibition areas of the Kaiserthermen are accessible without steps. There is a disabled WC on the ground floor. There are two disabled parking spaces in the nearby Wechselstraße which are accessible via a pedestrian crossing with a change of surface.
The cellar and tiered seating of the Amphitheater are accessible via steps. The entrance and the inner area (arena) of the Amphitheater are accessible without steps. The floor covering comprises loose chippings, cobblestones and sand. There is a WC on the ground floor, but it is not barrier-free. There are parking spaces available that are accessible without steps.
The Thermen am Viehmarkt
The Thermen am Viehmarkt is accessible via an entrance with no steps. There is a lift to the exhibition area in the basement and barrier-free access is possible. The lower basement is accessible via a circular path without steps, and it is partly accessible via ramps with an incline. The disabled WC is also on this floor. The viewing tower on the upper floor is accessible via steps. There is parking in the surrounding multi-storey car parks.
The Barbarathermen are currently closed and there is therefore no barrier-free access. There are no parking spaces directly next to the building.
The Igeler Säule
The Igeler Säule is accessed via steps. A WC is also accessible via steps. Parking spaces can be found on the surrounding roadside.
The Villa Otrang
The rooms of the Villa Otrang are accessible via steps. The building's restaurant is accessible without steps. There is a WC in the basement which is accessed via steps. The access from the car park to the villa includes natural stone steps.
The Rheinisches Landesmuseum Trier
All the museum's exhibition and event rooms are conveniently accessible via lifts. Visitors who find it difficult to walk and/or stand for long periods of time can borrow lightweight, portable folding stools from the cloakroom for their visit to the museum. Wheelchairs are also available to borrow here. If you are reliant on these facilities, please contact the museum before your visit so that wheelchairs or folding stools can be reserved for you. Please also contact the Rheinisches Landesmuseum if you have special requirements for your visit. There is a disabled parking space in front of the museum.
