Accessibility assessment

Object description

The castle is inaccessible for wheelchair users and partially accessible for people with other impairments. The access path from the car park to the castle does not enable independent use for wheelchair users, as it is 130 m long, unfirm (gravel) and on an incline. The reception counter, shop, chapel at the main entrance are only accessible via two steps. The exhibition spaces on the ground floor are accessible directly from the castle courtyard. There are high thresholds or stairs in front of entrances that are not adequately addressed. One of the spaces is a small hall with moveable seating. The first floor of the castle with the wedding hall and other exhibition spaces is only accessible via stairs. The halls are not equipped with an induction loop. Access to the castle tavern is also only possible via stairs, while the castle terrace is partially accessible from the outside of the castle (due to unsuitable paving). The castle courtyard paving is too rough and prevents independent wheelchair use. The castle does not have accessible sanitary facilities; the sanitary facilities are accessible from the castle courtyard via stairs.
