The most important things first

How to get to us, prices and opening hours – here you can find some important details about our Museum.

How to get to us?


The German Röntgen Museum is situated on the outskirts of the picturesque old town of Remscheid-Lennep, right opposite the Catholic church. Our new glass-design entrance area and foyer directly adjoins the distinctive, old, Oelbermann Villa building – a structure that can hardly be overlooked. It is very simple to reach us with public transport. The best possibility from Lennep Station is with the 655 bus line in the direction of H2O and from the main stations in Wuppertal and Solingen, we would recommend traveling in the regional train (Regionalbahn) Wuppertal-Solingen in the direction of Remscheid-Lennep. Anyone arriving by plane can take the S11 train to Düsseldorf Main Station (Hauptbahnhof) and then change into the S1 train to Solingen Main Station. If you are travelling by car, please bear in mind that the route is well signposted and if you are using a satnav system, it is best to enter “Hardtstrasse” – as there are adequate Museum-dedicated parking spaces available here.

Good to know

As a visitor, you most certainly have some queries up front. Here, we aim to answer (hopefully all of) them.


The entire Museum is barrier-free – and all rooms are accessible for wheelchair users. An elevator will take you from the ground floor into the basement as well as onto the first and second floors. The exhibition rooms in the cellar of the old townhouse can be easily accessed via a ramp. Our colleagues in the reception area will be only too pleased to help and show you the way.

The rest rooms for wheelchair users are situated on the ground floor behind the Museum shop. A changing table for babies is situated there.

Additionally, lightweight folding chairs can be borrowed from the Museum’s ticket counter by anyone who would prefer to sit while viewing the exhibits.

The German Röntgen Museum is one of the few museums in Germany that offers a video guide for its permanent exhibition in German sign language. As was already the case with the existing audio guides, the acoustic information has been translated into sign language. This means that deaf visitors to the exhibition can now obtain specially prepared information at some 24 of the exhibit areas.

Besides this video tour through the new exhibition in sign language and a specific audio guide for the visually impaired, a special audio guide is now available in ‘plain language’ for people with learning disabilities. Thanks to the simple language used in this audio guide, it is particularly well suited for fellow citizens with a migrant background and with an insufficient command of German.

The aim of the City of Remscheid is to further open up the German Röntgen Museum for persons with disabilities pursuant to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The existing barrier-free accessibility will be continually extended and enhanced.


The German Röntgen Museum can be visited during opening hours with a valid admission ticket. Guided tours outside normal opening hours can also be arranged.

Visitor guidelines

To enable all visitors to enjoy a pleasant stay at the German Röntgen Museum and in order to ensure the integrity of the exhibits, certain guidelines need to be followed. These are detailed in the “House Rules” and may be viewed by every visitor.

Visitor service

Our Museum’s office staff is pleased to be of assistance for any queries surrounding your visit to the museum. Here, for example, it is possible to book group guided tours, workshops or children’s events. Our staff can be reached from Mondays to Fridays from 9.00 till 13.00 by phone under the number 02191 / 16-33 84, by fax on 02191 / 16-31 45 or by email at

The German Röntgen Museum is a centre of discovery and exploration for all our visitors. The offers are diverse and tailored to satisfy the needs of various target groups: for children and young persons, for families, for singles and couples, for pupils, students and professors, for scientists and researchers, for seniors and persons with disabilities, for old and young, for the reserved and the outspoken, for the flamboyant as well as the unobtrusive. We are a Museum for everyone.

At the heart of the action

Here, we have compiled a list for our visitors of all the events that will take place in our Museum.

Our Museum is not only a centre of discovery, but also a location where things happen. Besides our exhibitions and guided tours, we also plan to periodically host some special exhibitions, series of talks and lectures, workshops and many other events. There are always new topics coming up that we would like to show to our visitors. There are always new findings in the worlds of medicine, science and technology that we wish to share with everyone. There are so many occasions where we can invite guests to visit us. So we have to make sure that we can always come up with something new to prevent our Museum from becoming a very humdrum kind of place. Indeed, we have a lot in the pipeline and we have put it all together for you in an overview.
