No Barriers


An access ramp to the cathedral from the cloister provides easy access for wheelchair users. Please ask at the entrance desk first for assistance. The cloister is also where the disabled toilet, treasury and access to the Cathedral Garden can be found. The Cathedral Treasury Vault and exhibition can be reached by a lift. The lift provides access to the exhibition “The Naumburg Master’s Career and Works” and to the Cathedral Chapter Library. In the Cathedral Garden, the paths are laid out in such a way that almost all areas are accessible to everyone.

Wheelchairs can also be borrowed from the entrance desk for the duration of your visit.

The audio guide provides detailed information on Naumburg Cathedral and its highlights such as the West Choir with its twelve donor statues, the oldest stone sculpture of St Elizabeth or the new window designed by Neo Rauch in the Chapel of St Elizabeth and other works of art. The Cathedral Treasury Vault with its distinguished artistic and cultural artefacts is also described in great detail.

Art to touch: The hand rails designed by Heinrich Apel at the entrance to the East Choir “St Francis and the animals” and “The narrow path to paradise” can be touched by visitors in all their detail.
