Access by public transport

Our museum is located directly on the Römerberg. How to reach us barrierfree:
Trams: Line 11 and 12 (Stop: Römer / Paulskirche)
The Römerberg is designed with cobblestone and runs slightly sloping towards the Main.
Subways: Line U4 and U5 (Stop: Dom / Römer)
Depending on the subway car type used (approx. 12-17 cm) between platform and subway or level entry.

Current notes:
Because of the structural redesign of the Dom / Römer area, it has unfortunately been necessary to close the elevator to the underground station Dom / Römer until the end of December 2017. Thus the subway station Dom / Römer is no longer accessible for passengers with reduced mobility.

Alternatively, you can get off at the Willy-Brandt-Platz underground station, as the station is wheelchair-accessible with elevators.
From there, turn right and then turn left in the street Alte Mainzer Gasse, pass the Archeological Museum left hand, until you reach the Römerberg.
You can access the entrance building of the Historisches Museum Frankfurt via a lift on the right, next to the stairs.


Elevators can be found as well in the new building as in the old building of the Historisches Museum Frankfurt. The elevators have got an entrance area with 90 cm door opening. The elevators all feature low-level controls for wheelchair users and sublime and high-contrast buttons.


One or more public disabled parking spaces can be found at the following locations:
Alte Mainzer Gasse 4
Berliner Straße 25–39/Neue Kräme
Seitenstreifen vor Seufzerbrücke A26
Braubachstraße 15
Domplatz 14
Paulsplatz 7/Torbogen
Saalgasse 7–9

Guided tours (planned end of 2017)

In our permanent exhibitions as well as in special exhibitions, we offer guided tours for the blind and visually impaired as well as guided tours for the deaf and in simple language by appointment. On request, we also organize guided tours for registered groups that bring a sign language interpreter. Once a month we also want to offer public guidance for the blind and visually impaired. The dates can then be found in our calendar.

Multimedia guide (beta-version)

The multimedia guide is our most important tool for the mobile communication of museum contents to various needs. The tours are offered in the format of a web app. Thus the multimedia guide can be operated on the own device (for example, one's own PC, tablet or smartphone) via the browser. Anyone can already build his own tour of the objects that they are interested in at home for their planned visit to the museum and then use their own mobile device in the museum. Multimedia guided tours are being developed for various groups: an audiodescriptive tour for people with visual impairments, a video guide in German sign language for people with hearing impairment, a tour in easy language with radio play elements for people with learning difficulties or visitors with a low knowledge of German. You can borrow the multimedia guide at the cash desk for a fee.
