The Best Disabled-Friendly Cities in Europe

If you are wondering where to travel next, and want to a place which provides you both with accessibility and comfort, read up on this guide on the best disability-friendly cities in the old continent, being Europe for those not in the know.

We will provide you with three of the friendliest cities, and with a bit of information on what to do and see in each of these cities. Keep reading and enjoy.

Berlin
This imperious and proud city won an award for best adapted European city in 2013. The city got this award due to generally having better invested in obstacle removal, a heftier transport system adapted for disabled travelers, better conditions and generally a better approach for every type of disability, from visually impaired travelers to those who have restricted mobility.

There is a lot to do and see in Berlin, and it would be difficult to include every kind of attraction here. The top places which come to mind are: The Scholss Chartlottenburg, the Brandeburg gate, the Haus am Checkpoint Charlie Museum and the Unter den Linde. Keep an eye out for all these, and they should be easy to get to as they are all very accessible. Remember, renting a disabled-friendly Berlin short term apartment with a website like City Getaway.com is the best way to ensure a comfortable holiday.

London
London is very much the place of choice for many first time travelers in Europe, and a metropolis which offers the best for those with disabilities. Approximately 20 million people visit London every year, with a large number of disabled holiday makers among those visitors. London has wheelchair access for almost all of its top spots, including the London Eye Ferris Wheel, Westminster cathedral, St Paul’s and much more.

Again, the top places to visit in London are probably those which everyone is already aware of. “Which ones?” you may end up asking; the answer depends on what you most like to see of course. As mentioned, Westminster cathedral is probably a popular sight for holiday makers as well as Buckingham palace. In any case, it does not matter what you will end up visiting as London is well equipped for disabled travelers.

Paris
Paris can still be considered the world capital for fashion, art, culture and philosophy. The city is slightly more challenging than London for disabled travelers, but it is still well equipped for most holiday makers with a disability. The best way to get around in this bustling metropolis is probably by taxi, and wheelchair accessibility should ensure a comfortable experience for all.

All the well known museums and sites have excellent facilities for disabled travelers; these sites include all of the Louvre (including easy access to the Mona Lisa, The Venus and much more), the Eiffel Tower, the Versailles Palace, the Cathedral of Notre Dame and much more. Paris must be visited at least once during one’s lifetime, and it is sure to provide a memorable experience for all but the sternest of travelers.

So there you have it, three of the best European cities with excellent access to disabled travelers. They may seem like very much the spots where everyone goes to, but they are still the most popular holiday destinations in Europe.
