Information about accessibility at HKW
What does architecture feel like? During an inclusive guided tour, blind, visually impaired and sighted visitors can get to know the architecture of Haus der Kulturen der Welt.
In addition to vivid details, the building from the 1950s offers many objects that can be touched, such as tactile models that help with orientation. Sighted visitors can also use dark glasses to experience the perceptions of the blind. Admission is free for accompanying persons and guide dogs are welcome.
