Information on the site
This is a site covering an extensive area where paths have a variety of different surfaces and assistance is needed beyond the central area. Entry to the Visitors’ Centre and the Main Switching House Restaurant is at ground level (consistent door width of at least 90 centimetres).
There are plenty of places on the site where visitors can sit and have a rest. Guide dogs for the blind are of course permitted.
There are five toilets for the disabled at the Landscape Park Duisburg Nord. There’s a public toilet at the Visitors’ Centre and Restaurant. The other disabled toilets are situated in the events locations (Power Plant, Casting House and Storeroom).
The toilet with wheelchair access at the Visitors’ Centre and Restaurant is kept locked, and the Eurokey can be obtained from the Main Switching House Restaurant (closed Mondays) and from the Visitors’ Centre.
