The UNESCO World Heritage Fagus Factory has been designed wheelchair friendly for our visitors, as far as this is possible in a living monument. Unfortunately a complete barrier-free access is not possible due to the structural conditions of the factory as historical industrial building complex.
You will find further information in the below overview:
Access to the UNESCO Visitor Centre
The UNESCO Visitor Centre is accessible via 7 steps. A lift makes a barrier-free access possible.
Access to the model cellar
The access to the model cellar is possible via 10 steps.
Access to the Fagus-Gropius Exhibition
A historical lift connects the different floors of the Fagus-Gropius Exhibition and offers a barrier-free alternative to the stairways. As this is a historical lift, it can only be used with our personnel.
The Fagus-Gropius Exhibition has a historical slatted floor. This floor can only be used to a limited extent with pushchairs, buggies, walkers and wheelchairs.
Free rental wheelchair
In view of the historical slatted floor in the Fagus-Gropius Exhibition, the Fagus Factory offers a wheelchair with extra-wide tires. We reserve this wheelchair for you already before you arrive. This service is free-of-charge for our visitors.
During our tours, stairs with 6-10 steps have to be climbed. We offer a barrier-free guided tour after previous agreement.
The outside area of the Fagus Factory is partially cobbled.
An accessible toilet is opposite the UNESCO Visitor Centre.
Barrier-free lockers are in the Fagus-Gropius Exhibition.
Handicapped-accessible parking places are in direct proximity to the UNESCO Visitor Centre.
The Fagus Factory has two parking places to charge electric vehicles.
Seats are provided in the exhibition areas and outdoors so that relaxing is possible, if necessary. The Fagus-Gropius Café and the UNESCO terrace invite to linger.

The companies Taxi Bock (+49 5181-4444) and City Car (+ 49 5181-2110) provide for a barrier-free transport from the railway station Alfeld to the UNESCO World Heritage Fagus Factory.
