All of the information that accompanies the exhibitions in GRIMMWELT are bilingual (German and English).
The "GRIMMWELT App" is available for the permanent exhibition as an audio guide and as a reading and media guide in various languages.
You can download the app to your smartphone free of charge from the Google Play Store
and the Apple App Store.
A limited number of audio guide devices are available at the ticket office for a rental fee (€ 2, plus headphones € 1).
We recommend that children from the age of 6 visit the permanent exhibition. In particular, the section of the exhibition dedicated to the Brothers Grimm's linguistic research is only suitable for children from primary school onwards.
Smaller children are nevertheless very welcome, and nursery school groups are also very welcome to visit us - especially the interactive fairy-tale world around the DORNENHECKE.
The exhibition rooms are accessible by lift from the ground floor (foyer, shop, catering, toilets) and may also be accessed with prams.
For safety reasons, we reserve the right to regulate access to exhibition rooms with prams if necessary (e.g. large numbers of visitors). In such cases, we have space available to leave prams and pushchairs.
All floors of the GRIMMWELT are accessible by lift. There is also an accessible toilet on the ground floor and on the first floor.
The exhibition is also accessible to all visitors.
The roof can be reached by stairs, but also via a lift from the GRIMMWELT foyer.
Due to access restrictions caused by the Corona pandemic, the lift to the roof is not freely accessible and can only be opened by our supervisory staff for people with limited mobility.
Please speak to our staff at the box office about this. Please understand that some waiting time may have to be allowed for here.
Umbrellas, backpacks, suitcases, bags etc. (larger than A4) and jackets must remain in the cloakrooms or lockers.
Yes, for private purposes photography and filming - without tripods/selfie sticks and without flash/lighting - is allowed.
Written permission is required for commercial purposes.
Drinks and food are available in our in-house restaurant FALADA.
Due to the pandemic the consumption of personal food and drinks is currently only possible outside in front of the GRIMMWELT.
Our shop and our in-house restaurant FALADA can be accessed without an admission ticket.
A limited number of parking spaces are available for a fee right next to the GRIMMWELT.
In addition, discounted parking spaces are available for visitors in the Friedrichsplatz underground car park. If you show your parking ticket at the GRIMMWELT ticket office, the parking ticket will be discounted by 1 Euro.
GENERAL NOTE: The GRIMMWELT is located within a garden monument area that needs to be protected from the impact of additional traffic. We therefore recommend travelling by public transport.
