The Naumburg Cathedral is barrier-free. Access to the nave and cloister is step-free. Stairs lead to the east choir and crypt, single steps to the west choir and smaller chapels. In the cloister there are handicapped accessible toilets as well as the cathedral treasury and the access to the cathedral garden. The cathedral treasury vault as well as the exhibition are accessible via a lift. The lift also guarantees access to the exhibition "Way and Works of the Naumburg Master" and to the cathedral library. In the cathedral garden, the network of paths is designed in such a way that almost all areas are accessible without barriers. Wheelchairs can also be borrowed from the entrance desk for the duration of your visit.
