Our museum is accessible to visitors with restricted mobility. From Konrad-Adenauer-Strasse, a ramp leads up to the entrance. Alternatively, there is a lift at pavement level in front of the Kammertheater. The underground car park can be accessed at ground level.

From the Hauptbahnhof (main station), visitors with restricted mobility can reach the Staatsgalerie using bus line 40.

From the Hauptbahnhof, there are also fully barrier-free pedestrian routes enabling you to reach the museum in about 15 minutes.
In the museum, lifts and ramps provide full access to all exhibition spaces. You will also find disabled-access restrooms. In addition, you can borrow a wheelchair or a child’s buggy, free of charge, for your visit. Portable seats for visitors are also available free of charge.

Barrier free access

The Staatsgalerie is barrier-free accessible.

How to get there by public transport:

The easiest way to reach us by public transport is to take bus line 40; from the main train station, it is just one stop to the Alte Staatsgalerie. The entrance to the museum is located in the New State Gallery, the Stirling Building. You can reach the terrace of the Stirling Building and thus the entrance via a staircase-free stairway. At ground level, you can also reach an elevator at the level of the Chamber Theater.

Directions by car:

By car, please drive via Konrad-Adenauer-Straße to the underground car park "Staatsgalerie". From there you can reach the terrace of the Stirling-Bau with the entrance either via the staircase-free stairway or via the elevator on the level of the Kammertheater.

Parking spaces for people with disabilities

On foot:

You can reach us on foot from Stuttgart main station in about 15 minutes on barrier-free paths. We recommend the route via Königstraße, i.e. the traffic lights at the central main exit of the station, then from Königstraße turn left through the Theaterpassage in the direction of Eckensee and there between the opera house and the state parliament via Konrad-Adenauer-Straße by traffic lights. Then turn left along Konrad-Adenauer-Straße until you reach the Staatsgalerie.

Accessibility in the building

The Staatsgalerie Stuttgart comprises three large architectures (Alte Staatsgalerie, Stirling-Bau and Steib-Bau), which are interconnected. The collection and exhibition rooms are distributed over the three buildings on two floors, each accessible by elevators.

Guidance system

The entrance is on the terrace of the Stirling Building. With the purchase of the entrance ticket, each visitor receives a map of the building structure with relevant information on the wayfinding system, including elevators and sanitary facilities. The staff on site will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Barrier-free toilets are located on the first floor of the Alte Staatsgalerie and in the Stirling Building.

To walk from the Hauptbahnhof (main station; about 12 min.), take the Königstrasse exit and immediately turn right, continue past the Stuttgart City “i-Punkt” tourist information centre towards the Oberer Schlossgarten and Schauspielhaus.

Cross at the traffic lights. Continue 80 metres to the Staatsgalerie entrance on your right. The entrance is barrier-free.

Alternative route (not barrier-free):
On reaching the Oberer Schlossgarten, cross it in the direction of the Opernhaus. Between the Landtag and the Opernhaus, a broad path leads to a pedestrian underpass. On the opposite side of the road, you will be able to see the postmodern building ensemble which includes the Haus der Geschichte, the Musikhochschule and the Kammertheater as well as the Staatsgalerie. After crossing the road, turn left and continue past the large water basin. About 100 metres further on, a ramp on the right leads up to the museum entrance.
