Oststation is part of the larger building complex Am Kempelenpark (Quellenstraße 2). The yard can be entered directly from the West via Quellenstraße or from the North via Geiereckstraße, following the pedestrian bridge over the train tracks (not barrier free – see “Accessibility” below). We suggest checking the exact location on a map.
- No smoking indoors.
- No alcohol on the premises.
- Wear a mask in indoor spaces and during performances.
- Adhere to staff directions and signage.
The venue consists of two separate areas: A former wire rope factory (“Oststation”), and an adjacent allotment plot. To bridge the difference in level between the plots where they immediately connect, a temporary staircase was built. There is however also a ground-level connection, which leads into the allotment plot through the back.
If you arrive via Geiereckstraße, please note that the pedestrian bridge is not barrier-free.
The entrance and exit, most of the allotment plot, the performance program, as well as the main hall of Oststation are at ground level, albeit not entirely free of thresholds. We are using the cellar and mezzanine of Oststation as additional exhibition spaces, each of which can only be accessed by stairs.
We regret that we could not make the entire venue completely barrier-free. Aside from what was mentioned, there may be additional parts of the exhibition space that can’t be accessed or are hard to access in a wheelchair. However, we want to accommodate everybody, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch (email@example.com or simply address our staff on site) if you have any concerns or questions regarding your visit – we will do our best to find a suitable solution.
