Tips for wheelchair users

Paths and stairs

Flowering Dahlias in September 2009

You can access the low-lying ornamental courtyard via the handrail-lined paved path. It starts to the left of the wide main staircase, south of the ornamental courtyard and is indicated by the wheelchair symbol on the garden map.

Toilet facilities

In the basement of the entrance building (glass building) are WCs. After pushing the elevator button the door automatically opens outward.
A spacious toilet with amenities for wheelchair access is located in an outbuilding close to the café. Note that the front door will be locked when occupied.

Tram and bus

According to the MVV (the Munich public transport network) both the tramline number 17 and the bus number 143 are suitable for wheelchair access. However, some assistance may be required since the door sills are not level with the pavement.

Car parking

Two disabled car parking spaces are provided in front of the "Botanische Staatsanstalten", the large building with the wide staircase in Menzinger Straße 67. The main entrance of the Botanical Garden is in Menzinger Straße 65, approx. 60 meters along, facing toward the city centre.
