More than three quarters of all visitors enjoy exploring Germany's towns and cities – those medieval centres full of crouching half-timbered buildings towered over by Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals, not to mention all the majestic baroque residences and pub-and-club districts that never sleep. Multicultural, suitable for all ages and extensively barrier-free.
Koblenz, one of Germany's oldest towns, lies at the point where the Moselle flows into the Rhine. With prior arrangement, the various themed guided tours can be made available for wheelchair users. Tour guides have been specially trained for working with blind people and communicating in sign language.
The composer Johann Sebastian Bach and the church reformer Thomas Müntzer made the historical free imperial city of Mühlhausen famous far beyond the region's borders. The Parish church of St. Blasius, the Corn Market Church with the Peasants' Revolt Museum and St Mary's Church, with its memorials to Thomas Müntzer, are all suitable for visitors with reduced mobility.
In Wernigerode's Bürgerpark, visitors can explore the nearby mountains recreated in miniature. The 'Little Harz' miniature park contains many tactile exhibits and is of course fully accessible. The tourist information centre offers special tours, e.g. with a sign language interpreter.
Lying at the foot of the Harz mountains, Halberstadt awaits its visitors with the majestic treasures of its cathedral. Specifically designed guided walks, which cater for visitors' particular requirements, lead you to the town's attractions. Music fans can hear a small extract from the world's longest musical piece.
Blind and partially sighted visitors can explore Soest's old quarter with walking tours from the 'City guide' app, which uses directional information to guide you along a pre-planned route. Upon arrival at an attraction, the Smartphone reads out a visually descriptive text.
Exploring the blue stones gives you a true feel for Güstrow. The walking trail around the old quarter — once a regular Sunday walk of the sculptor Ernst Barlach — takes in the main places of influence. The Ernst Barlach studio apartment and the Gothic cathedral with its 'Schwebende' (floating angel) form part of the itinerary for reduced mobility and sensorially impaired visitors.
Both in and beyond Hamburg's famous Schanzenviertel district, mobilWERK finds the best tour guides for visitors' individual needs: People, who live, work or socialise here, so they really know their way around. Whether in a wheelchair or just less mobile, with mobilWERK all visitors are soon on the move in the 'most beautiful town in the world'.
The town hall with the Roland statue draws visitors to the Hanseatic city of Bremen, as do the historical market square, St. Peter's Cathedral and the acclaimed fairy-tale figures of the Bremen Town Musicians. On the Bremer Touristik-Zentrale's website you can find 'accessible' and 'plain-language' guided walks of the old quarter.
