Accessibility at ANOHA

Info for your visit to the Children’s World

After deciding to visit the ANOHA Children’s World, you might have a few questions. Will I be able to go everywhere in the Children’s World? Are there stations I can explore with my hands or with my ears? This page provides information about accessibility. If you have more questions, you can check with us about them before you come. You can also ask our pedagogically trained ANOHIS during your visit. The ANOHIs all wear light blue vests and will introduce themselves by name.

Moving around ANOHA

All of ANOHA is reachable without climbing stairs. Several of the stations have climbing elements, however, making them inaccessible. In the Children’s World, you will need non-slip socks. Do you have special shoes, a walker, or anything else you require to move around? Of course you are welcome to bring them with you into ANOHA. Your assistance dog may also accompany you.

Wheelchairs

You can navigate all of ANOHA in a wheelchair. Most areas can be reached via inclines. Not all play elements are accessible to wheelchair users, however, because some are for climbing on.

Strollers and carriages

Strollers and baby carriages must be parked at the coat check. Special needs strollers can be brought with into the exhibition.

Seating

Inside ANOHA, there are many places where you are welcome to sit down and rest.

Along with more than 150 animal sculptures, many stations await you in our Children’s World – places where you are welcome to play an active role.

  • Experience Noah’s Flood with all your senses! Hear the rain drumming down! Watch the water rising!
  • Are the animals on the Ark hungry? Together with other children, you can prepare food for the animals at the feeding station.

For groups with participants who are visually impaired or blind, we’ve developed a workshop together with the ABSV, Berlin’s general association for the blind and visually impaired. You will be able to book this workshop at visit@​anoha.​de starting in 2022.

ANOHA for children who are Deaf or hard of hearing

Do you need a sign-language interpreter for an event at ANOHA? You or a family member can send us an email at visit@​anoha.​de.

ANOHA – easy to understand

At ANOHA, there aren’t any long texts on the walls. Our ANOHIs – the people wearing the blue vests – are happy to explain what you can do here. But you are also welcome to try the stations out for yourself or ask other children.

We offer tours and workshops in simple, approachable language. If you would like to schedule a tour or workshop in simple and understandable language, send an email to visit@​anoha.​de. We will check to see if there are guides available who can lead a simple-language or easy-to-understand event, and then we will schedule a time with you.
