Accessibility & Inclusion

As always, accessibility and inclusion are very important to us. The rooms, halls and stages are all wheelchair accessible and we offer tickets at reduced prices. re:publica is an international event, featuring speakers from 60 countries. It is important to us that all participants feel welcome and are able to make their way around the event.

More than half of re:publica's sessions will take place in English and all talks on Stage 1 will be accompanied by speech-to-text translation in German or English and will be displayed onstage, as well as on our website in the live stream. All Stage 1 and Stage 2 sessions are simultaneously translated into English and selectively into German. Following the re:publica, all talks will be archived on our YouTube channel and several will feature added English subtitles.

Moreover there will be a team of German sign language interpreters on-site. You can meet them at the Info Counter in the main hall at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday (9 May) and Wednesday (10 May), from where they will accompany you to the sessions. If you need to reach them during the day, you can also contact them from the info point. We are currently also trying to organise sign language interpretation for the Monday (8 May). If you should happen to know of a sign language interpreter who would be still available during that time please get in touch with: helene (at)


People accompanying severely disabled persons (with disabled pass, German disability code "B") have free admission to the re:publica. We therefore ask you to register this escort in advance at: ticket(at)

The ticket prices should not constitute an obstacle for anyone interested, but working on a limited budget. This is why we offer people the chance to help out for one day during the conference. In return you get catering and a branded t-shirt, as well as a ticket for the rest of the event, allowing you to participate in the conference (read more on that on our helpers’ site; we are currently still looking for help for #rp17!).

Got any questions? You can find further information in our FAQs. Should you have any other concerns, feel free to get in touch with us via the contact form. Question concerning the ticket system, discounts or accompanying persons can be directing straight to: ticket(at)

Accessible Toilets & Parking                                                    

All toilets are marked in the site plan. Accessible bathrooms are located next to the main stage (Stage 1) and next to the cloakroom (White Room). There are diaper-changing tables in all of the accessible bathrooms (see map). There is only very limited disabled parking available on-site. There are, however, more parking places in close vicinity. Ask one of our helpers at the entrance if you are in need of assistance. All other vehicles can park in the Parkhaus am Gleisdreieck
