Accessibility

Sometimes, there are restrictions when you visit our industrial monuments.
Nevertheless, we want to make sure all visitors have an enjoyable stay and we’re designing concepts for a barrier-free layout.

So far, barrier-free visits to the Hansa coking plant are, in parts, possible.
Here, we’ve already been certified since 2015 in the scope of "travel for all."
You’ll find all relevant information about your barrier-free visit here.
