Getting here

The Statenpoort is largely wheelchair-accessible and therefore reasonably passable with a walker and pram. The only threshold of about 12 cm is on the street side, just in front of the building. We will gladly assist you. Inside, there are some low wooden thresholds.
The Statenpoort has a wheelchair toilet. The next nearest wheelchair toilet can be found in café-restaurant Ridderikhoff on Roode Steen 9. That is approx. 200 metres away from the Statenpoort. Ridderikhoff is open Tuesday to Friday from 11 am and on weekends from 12 am.
Your assistance dog is welcome in the Statenpoort.
Do you need an attendant to visit us due to your assistance needs and are you bringing them yourself? In that case that person may enter free of charge. Please indicate this at the reception desk. You don’t have your own attendant, but you do have a request for help? Please let us know in advance. Then we will gladly lend you a helping hand during your visit. Please contact us at info@wfm.nl.
