Experience Germany without barriers.

Magnificent mountain panoramas, fascinating highlands and wide coastlines, natural conservation areas and pulsating metropolises, historical dwellings, world-renowned cultural institutions and distinguished events – each year all these attract more and more visitors to Germany from all over the world.

To make the diverse richness of Destination Germany available to everyone, a multitude of continually evolving projects have been initiated over recent years with the aim of providing accessible tourism opportunities.

Accessibility is multifaceted and affects very different visitor groups: people with temporary mobility restrictions, families with pushchairs and pregnant women can all benefit, as can permanently physically disabled people who may require a wheelchair or be partially or fully blind or deaf. Plus, with changing demographics, an increasing number of senior citizens are enjoying frequent use of accessible amenities. Over the following pages you will find attractive travel destinations throughout Germany that have been selected for their exemplary accessibility. Let yourself be inspired to enjoy a barrier-free holiday in Germany's towns and regions.
