Known for its innovative architecture, exciting food scene, vibrant culture, tangible history, and lively nightlife, Berlin is a fascinating blend of glamour and grit.
As the German capital, there’s plenty to see and do here. Berlin is home to gorgeous green spaces that cover one-third of the city, hundreds of museums and galleries, unique restaurants, trendy bars, and even more bridges than Venice.
In 2013 Berlin was awarded the European Commission’s Access City award, and the city is committed to being barrier-free (designed for those who have physical or other disabilities).
The U-Bahn, trams, buses, and S-Bahn are all accessible for people who are in wheelchairs, have limited mobility, are blind or partially sighted, or are deaf or hard-of-hearing – and thanks to Berlin’s wide, flat pavements, navigating the city is easy if you’re in a wheelchair.
Almost all of Berlin’s most popular sights and attractions are disability-friendly too. From Museum Island, where the cultural attractions are located, to the Reichstag, where wheelchair-users can enjoy the 360-degree view from the roof terrace via the internal ramp.
In terms of accommodation, there’s plenty of choice, as there are hundreds of stylish hotels with ramps, lifts, and roll-in showers.
