All about Accessibility
We go to great efforts to ensure that our events are as barrier-free as possible, including advance ticket booking. To this end, we implemented a comprehensive set of measures in autumn 2015 to eliminate as many barriers as possible or at least reduce them in light of the monument protection regulations. We have compiled the most important information for you below.
Directions, Parking & Arrival
Arrival by car and parking: There is a barrier-free parking lot (albeit not exclusively reserved for the venue) on Minoritenplatz at the corner of Steiner Landstraße. It is located in the immediate vicinity of the Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche (ca. 50 m); the cobblestone square has a slight slope uphill.
Directions to the parking lot: Coming from the B3 motorway, follow the two traffic circles at the Stein ship station (Franz-Zeller-Platz) in the direction of Kunsthalle Krems. Turn left at the Kunsthalle into Steiner Landstraße, 500 metres down the street on the right-hand side is Minoritenplatz.
Visitors with limited mobility can drive up within 5 metres of the main entrance of the Klangraum Krems Minoritenkirche with a travel attendant. Thereafter, please park your car on Minoritenplatz or on the nearby Steiner Donaulände street.
