Safe ventilation technology at the Akademie der Künste
The ventilation systems in the public areas of the Akademie der Künste have been optimised. Our facilities are now equipped with high-performance ventilation and air-conditioning systems that operate with 100% fresh air supply, fine particle filters for germs and bacteria and UV air disinfection technology. Depending on the room, an air exchange frequency of three to eight times an hour is guaranteed. Air quality is monitored consistently and filters are changed regularly.

There are three accessible parking spaces in the main (cobblestone) parking lot on Bartningallee. The distance from there to the main entrance of the Akademie der Künste is approx.150  m. 

The route to the entrance is easily passable with some minor restrictions. The ground is covered in slate slabs that are slightly uneven in places. There are three steps down  to the entrance. A ramp with a 5% slope is available on the right side of the building. 

The flooring inside the building is also made of slate slabs on the ground floor. The Studio lobby is carpeted.

Tickets are sold next to the reception desk. The bistro ArtCanteen and the Akademie bookshop are on the left. The reception desk is 83 cm high at its lowest point.

There is still no automatic entrance door. However, reception personnel are aware of the situation and can provide assistance if required. If you run into any problems, you can contact the reception personnel by phone: +49 (0)30 200 57 2000
