The escalator and lift can be found on the way towards the exit “Möckernstraße/Tempodrom”. The lift leads to Askanischer Platz, which is connected to Schöneberger Straße by a tarred path. After about 100 metres on the right-hand side, you will find yourself on Stresemannstraße. Cross the street and stay on the left for about 500 metres to Niederkirchnerstraße. As soon as you have turned onto Niederkirchnerstraße, you will already see the main entrance 100 metres away, with a sign regarding the barrier-free entrance.
The S-Bahn station also has an exit via stairs. This is located in the direction of the exit “Stresemannstraße/Schöneberger Straße”, where the “Martin-Gropius-Bau” is already marked with an accompanying arrow on the platform sign. If you follow this sign, another one will point you to the right exit, which leads directly to Stresemannstraße. There, another sign points the way to the Gropius Bau.
