Please remember that visitors need a negative test result from the same day, proof of vaccination (2x) or recovery and a ffp2 mask to visit the site. Maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meters from others. We follow the Berlin senate’s ongoing Covid-19 guidelines.
The site is wheelchair accessible, as well as most spaces on the site, including toilets and bar. When arriving at the gate, if the large door on the right is closed, please inform us and we will open it for you.
Entry to our events is free, but we encourage donations upon arrival. The Floating University is open to everybody during opening hours, even if you just want to stroll around.
Our events are in German and English. We will announce the language of the events online. If you have questions, please contact us. Sometimes “Denglish” is used. Members of the Floating association also converse in Spanish, Italian, French, Dutch, Polish, Estonian and Hebrew. Unfortunately we do not have facilities to support people with hearing-impairments. We aim to correct this in the future. However, the site is a natural biotope that engages all the senses. There are things to see and do here even if you are not attending our events.
A safer space is intended to be free of bias, conflict, criticism, or potentially threatening actions, ideas, or conversations for marginalised people. People who are marginalised need their own spaces in which they can be free from the marginalisation that permeates every other societal space that we occupy, such as racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, etc. Oppressed people need spaces where they can be free from the stereotypic gaze – where they can simply and authentically be and express themselves. We kindly ask that visitors to the Floating to respect the boundaries set by us or by a specific group if they see the safer space sign.
Our toilets are gender neutral. Please use the pink water containers to flush.
There is always work to be done! Ask us!
Our site is especially suitable for kids, and we hold many events for children. However, we do not provide childcare on site and we expect you to be responsible for the safety of your children.
