Signet 'bavaria barrier-free' presented to bad kissingen district court

In a government declaration in november 2013, state premier horst seehofer set the goal of making all of bavaria’s public spaces and local public transport accessible by 2023. These include the two buildings of the bad kissingen district court, which are among the 220 properties of the bavarian judiciary. The head of the ministry of justice, frank arloth, was convinced about the accessibility of the max- and von-hessing-strabe sites.

Barrier-free means that people with and without disabilities can reach areas of life without particular difficulty and without assistance. Parents with strollers are also affected by the game. "Here in the gebaude this was implemented in an exemplary manner", arloth is convinced. He is currently visiting all 73 district courts in the free state to see the problems on the ground. It’s not just about accessibility. "We have to create good conditions overall", declares the head of office. The strained personnel situation in the judiciary due to staff shortages and pension waves plays a role here, but also the security issues in the courthouses. In bad kissingen, with its two locations, safety plays a special role. "Security ties up personnel, so we have an additional cost factor here", explains head of department reinhard oberndorfer. For security reasons, there are entrance checks which always tie up employees.

After the hammelburg branch moved to the von hessingstrabe in bad kissingen in 2009, 3.35 million euros were invested in the building. In the adjacent building in maxstrabe the cost since 2011 amounted to more than 500 000 euro. For accessibility, elevators with intercoms were installed, and reserved parking spaces were built directly in the courtyard. "The work was all carried out while the plant was in operation", reports head of operations bernd paul.

But not all obstacles can be removed in the old sandstone buildings, such as the staircase in maxstrabe. "They can take that into account with new buildings", says oberndorfer. Head of operations paul adds: "we can’t rub out all the walls here." For organizational as well as logistic reasons a common location would be advantageous. "One site would be our natural choice, but we have two beautiful buildings that are in full working order", says behordenleiter oberndorfer. Consideration was given to combining the buildings. Head of office arloth says: "with 220 properties, there are more urgent cases to deal with." For example, the planned new construction of the justice center in schweinfurt will begin in spring 2019.

14 million euros have been earmarked by the bavarian ministry of justice to make all buildings barrier-free.
