Information for people with disabilities
The German Bundestag is accessible for people with disabilities. The Reichstag Building can be accessed by wheelchair users via ramps and also via the "Disabled Entrance" (West C). The exhibition on parliamentary history in the Deutscher Dom is also accessible. Wheelchairs are available on loan if required. Induction loops assist visitors with a hearing impairment in hearing plenary debates and lectures on the visitors’ galleries. For deaf visitors in groups of at least ten people, sign language interpreters can be provided - provided this is requested in writing well in advance. Assistance for people with a visual impairment and blind people is provided in the form of Braille labels and audio floor notifications in the lifts. A tactile model of the Reichstag Building and a tactile diagram of the plenary chamber and dome, as well as a tactile model of the parliamentary and government district, enable blind and visually impaired guests to explore the forums of German democracy.
On request, special tours can be held for blind and visually impaired people in groups with a minimum of ten guests.
