Accessibility statement

The Hessenpark Open Air Museum endeavours to make its website accessible in accordance with the provisions of the Hessian Disability Equality Act (HessBGG) Section 14(1) and the Hessian Ordinance on Accessible Information Technology (HVBIT) implementing Directive (EU) 2016/2102.
This digital accessibility statement applies to the current version of this website available online:

Status of compliance with requirements

The website only partially complies with Section 14(1) of the Hessian Disability Equality Act (HessBGG) because of the following exceptions.

Inaccessible content / Non-compliance with HVBIT

The following content does not comply with Section 3(1) of HVBIT and is not accessible for the following reasons:
• A simplified language version is not yet available.
• Information is not yet available in German sign language.
• Some of the graphics used on the website (images, user elements, symbols) do not yet have alternative text and image descriptions.
• There are no subtitles or transcriptions for embedded videos.
• Documents such as downloadable PDFs have not all been made accessible.
• Content on the website cannot all be navigated via keyboard shortcuts; the search function can be used as an alternative.
Because complying with these guidelines would constitute an excessive organisational burden for Hessenpark Open Air Museum, which has limited staff and financial resources, not all content is currently completely accessible. At the moment, there are no accessible alternatives for the above content. However, you are welcome to contact us via the contact options stated below, and we will work on individual solutions if necessary.


Issue date of accessibility statement

The compliance review is based on a self-assessment conducted on 22 September 2021.
