About the Guide
The guide aims to provide a diagnosis of accessibility of the tourist infrastructures to people with reduced mobility (PRM) who seek information when staying in Brussels.
We intend this guide be an effective tool for travel agencies and tour operators, the service providers of transport or accommodation. This booklet gives information on the accessibility of accomodation, hotels, restaurants, commercial spaces, sports centres or other leisure facilities.
When making this third edition of the guide we could note, at the time of our new visits, that certain hotels or restaurants had carried out improvements to accommodate disabled tourists. Several new hotels offer an optimal accessibility for the travellers to reduced mobility. Without forgetting that several municipalities of Brussels and the Brussels-Capital Region have launched projects to improve the accessibility of green areas, playgrounds, roadway systems and transport.
Lastly, this guide is not intended to be sufficient on its own; it is complementary to other traditional tourist guides which remain essential to appreciate the expansive cultural and leisure activities in Brussels.
The Guide is available from AMT Concept.
