Facilities for individuals with special needs
We like to think that we have demonstrated the appropriate sensitivity to the needs of persons with impaired mobility. There is easy access to the Concert Hall for the disabled, and there are specially designed restrooms on all levels, as well as trolley bars.
If you are arriving from Vas. Sofias St., use the ramp at the entrance to access the ticket office and foyer. From here you can take the lift to stalls entrances 2 and 3 if you are attending an event in the Christos Lambrakis Hall, or the internal lift to entrance 1 if your event is in the Dimitris Mitropoulos Hall. Both these venues have a specially designated space to accommodate three wheelchairs.
If you are attending an event in the Alexandra Trianti Hall, Nikos Skalkotas Hall or Banquet Hall, or if you wish to visit the exhibition area, conference facilities or Lilian Voudouri Music Library, there is a ramp at the new entrance on Vas. Sofias St., leading to the main foyer, from where there are ramps and lifts to all areas. To get to the Alexandra Trianti Hall you will take the internal lift at entrance 5, which brings you to stalls entrance 1, where there is a specially designated area for 3 wheelchairs. In the Nikos Skalkotas Hall there is space for 2 wheelchairs, while the Banquet Hall has a level floor and no fixed seats.
If you come to the Concert Hall by car, you can park in the special disabled parking places on all three levels of the Concert Hall parking facility. Then follow the special signs to the lifts, from where you can access all areas of the Concert Hall.
There is also access to the gardens of the Concert Hall and the Fuga restaurant, either from V. Sofias St. or from Kokkali St.
When you book tickets for an event at the Concert Hall, please let the booking office staff know if you have a disability, so that they can seat you appropriately in the auditorium.
The Concert Hall has a special wheelchair and attendant available to help those with impaired mobility. Please telephone before your visit to make arrangements with the Public Areas Department.
You can call the Department on 210 7282324. They will be happy to provide any information or clarification you require.
The Concert Hall was the recipient of a Helios award (public buildings category) from the European Commission, in recognition of its provision for the disabled.
