GETTING THERE

JOURNEY FROM MAINLAND/DAGEBÜLL-MOLE AND FROM THE ISLAND OF AMRUM

You can reach the ferry harbour Dagebüll-Mole by rail or with your car. The ferries of the Wyker Dampfschiff-Reederei Föhr/Amrum (WDR) depart for Wyk auf Föhr daily every 50 to 90 minutes. The museum of the island Amrum/Wittdün can also be reached with WDR ferries or those of Adler-Schiffe. Schedules and prices can be found at www.faehre.de. You can also take a look at our information for day trippers from the mainland and Amrum.

 

TRAVELLING FROM THE ISLAND OF SYLT

From May until October, the Adler ships also head from Sylt/Hörnum via Wittdün on Amrum to Wyk harbour. For ferry schedules and fares please visit the website www.adler-schiffe.de. Throughout the year it is possible to travel by Deutsche Bahn from Westerland to Niebüll and from there by the Norddeutsche Eisenbahngesellschaft (NEG) to Dagebüll Mole from where the ferry leaves for Wyk auf Föhr. From Sylt you also have the option of travelling by small airplane from Westerland airport to Wyk airport.

 

MKdW-ART-SHUTTLE

From 1 April until 31 October the Museum Kunst der Westküste offers shuttle service in cooperation with the Korf taxi company in Föhr: every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday the art shuttle takes you in ten minutes from Wyk harbour to the museum in Alkersum. The shuttle departs from the stop below the WDR building at 1 p.m. and takes you from the museum back to Wyk at 3.30 pm.

Tickets can be purchased on the bus as well as on the Adler ships.

Round trip: adults 4.50 €, children ages 5–14 1.50 €, children 4 and under free.

 

PARKING

The Museum Kunst der Westküste has two parking areas which are not located right by the museum complex, but about 100 or 150 metres further on the same side of the street towards Utersum: drive to 7 Hauptstrasse (at the administrative building of the Museum Kunst der Westküste, Ferring Stiftung, and Friisk Funk) or to 11 A Hauptstrasse and leave your car there.

Located right at the museum building, to the left of the museum entrance, are two parking spaces which are reserved exclusively for our visitors with limited mobility (disability placard) and marked accordingly.

 

BICYCLE PARKING AREAS

The Museum Kunst der Westküste has two areas where you can park your bicycle: one is located right to the left of the main entrance at the back of the large, thatched-roof exhibition hall (facing the village square) and the other is fifty metres down the street across from the bakery.

Bicycles may not be parked at the entrances to the museum and to the museum restaurant Grethjens Gasthof.

 

ACCESSIBILITY

The museum offers barrier-free facilities, including a toilet for the disabled, an elevator for guests, and ramps in the main exhibition area. Only in a few locations you may need help, as doors don’t open automatically. We will gladly assist you.

The exhibition area on the gallery above Grethjens Gasthof, where we usually present photography exhibitions, is not barrier-free. We recommend wheelchair users to visit the museum in company (if “B” is entered in the disability card, admission for the accompanying person is free). Our staff will gladly assist you.

 

FAMILIES

A baby buggy that can be borrowed free of charge is available at the museum shop. This allows you to comfortably carry your baby through the exhibitions.

In our hygge room children can play, read, paint, listen to audio drama, or simply take a hyggelig, cosy break in our authentic old wooden boat under parental supervision.

With our “fun block” children aged 7 and up, whether alone or accompanied, become explorers in the exhibitions, taking a closer look at individual works. The “fun block” is available at the museum shop for a fee of 3 €.
