Barrier-free options

EdelSteinLand offers a selection of barrier-free accommodation options, tourist attractions and excursion tips. “Travel for all – certified barrier-free” as the seal of approval states for reliable holiday and excursion planning. All participating businesses and premises have been subjected to a strict inspection by a specially trained appraiser, tasked with assessing their barrier-free set-up. This enables you to get a good idea of accessibility, e.g. with a pram or wheelchair before starting your holiday.

The certification can be awarded for 7 needs-based groups, which in turn is broken down into 3 levels (info level, partially barrier-free, barrier-free):

> People with a physical impairment
> Wheelchair users
> People with a hearing impairment
> People with no hearing
> People with a visual impairment
> People with no sight
> People with a cognitive impairment
