Guided tours for disabled and senior citizens:

Due to the topography of the area parts of the :metabolon project can unfortunately only be viewed via a footpath with a gradient and via stairs. Our goal is to enable as many disabled and senior citizens as possible to visit the :metabolon project. For disabled and senior citizens who are interested in a guided tour of the site we offer a free bus transfer (VW van – no disabled vehicle) from the visitors' car park at the entrance to the extracurricular place of learning and back every Friday afternoon at 2.00 p.m. after previous arrangement by phone. If you would like to use your own disabled vehicle you can do so on Fridays after previous arrangement and we will accompany you.
