Accessibility

LEGO-Wheely on Alexanderplatz

We aim to make a conference that is easily accessible for everyone and to inform about potential obstacles. Even though all stages are accessible for those impared of walking, please bear in mind that the venue is a cultural heritage site, and re-building measurements to make it more convenient are not always possible because re-modeling is constricted for such buildings to preserve its original structure. If you are impaired of walking, you will look at the venue differently,so please do not hesitate to reach out to us should you encounter problems or if would like to share your experience of the venue.

If you would like to request assistance to get to around onsite, please reach out to Max at info@berlinbuzzwords.de
