The entrance=* key describes the point where you can go into a building or enclosed area (such as a zoo, theme park, cemetery grounds etc). Different values are used to denote the importance or type of entrance. The entrance node should be placed on the building/area's way (i.e. its outline).

How to place nodes tagged with "entrance".

Please use the access=* values to describe who is allowed to enter.

  • access=yes The public has an official, legally-enshrined right of access.
  • access=delivery Access only for delivering goods to or from a customer.
  • access=private Access only with key, keycard or similar. Look here for additional subtags.
  • access=no Access is not allowed.

If you don't need a key to go out from a building or restricted area, you can mark this with exit=yes. This tagging has sense, if rules for exit are different from rules for entrance.

Accessibility combinations

  • Use wheelchair=yes to describe the entrance possibilities for a wheelchair user.
  • You can add width=* to indicate small doors for wheelchair routing.
  • You can add automatic_door=yes to indicate automatic doors for wheelchair users and to warn visually impaired / blind users.


Entrances and addresses


If address is related not to whole building, but to individual staircases/entrances, tags entrance=main/staircase/home, addr:housenumber=* and addr:street=* should be added to main entrances to staircases (or to houses). Use ref=* for marking "inner" number of staircase (not to be confused with "outer" address, which some staircases have - for such addresses we should use addr:housenumber=*). addr:housenumber=* is put to one of entrances to staircase, ref=* can be marked to several entrances (also to service entrances to staircases).

Use addr:flats=* for marking all flats inside the staircase, for example, addr:flats=1-20. (This entrance leads to flats/apartments with numbers from 1 to 20 inclusive). If there are gaps in numbering, use semicolons: addr:flats=3-7;10;14;16-18.

If there is only one flat or unit behind the door addr:unit=* is more common. See addr=* for more.
