It is also possible to reach the museum from the “Blauer See” car park by walking along the railway line and the former bleaching meadows. The route is signposted, approx. 600 m.
Limited parking facilities are available in Cromforder Allee and in the courtyard behind the museum (Access on right passed the mansion)
There are two marked disabled parking spaces in the courtyard behind the museum (Access on right passed the mansion)
From the bus stop “Blauer See” to the museum (sign-posted path):
The path from the bus stops to the museum as described for persons without restricted mobility is not suitable for persons with restricted mobility because it has a steep gradient. This is particularly the case in the last section of the Cromforder Allee (approx. 12 per cent). The path is, however, barrier-free.
Visitors can either take a bus from the station or walk to the museum.
With bus from station to the museum:
On foot from the station to the museum (Time: approx. 30 Minutes, Distance: approx. 2 km):
The route on foot is not barrier-free.
In the case of visitors with restricted mobility it is probably best not to walk to the museum from the station as there are relatively steep slopes and unevenness on the route which is approximately 2 kilometres long. It is better to continue the journey from the station by bus.
