Infopunt Toegankelijk Reizen
The Accessible Travel Info Point (in Dutch: Infopunt Toegankelijk Reizen) is a service of the Flemish Tourist Board Toerisme Vlaanderen, which grew out of cooperation with various organisations and services by and for people with disabilities. The mission of the Info Point is to supplement the lack of information about travelling when you have a disability. A traveller with a disability or impairment will find carefully collected information at the Info Point about the accessibility of various holiday destinations in Belgium and other countries. He/she can expect reliable information from us, tailored to his/her personal requirements. The tourism sector in Flanders can contact us for background information about accessibility, subsidies available and guidelines for alterations to improve accessibility.
The Flemish Tourist Board provides both information to customers and the tourism sector. They give information for the tourism sector to promote and support accessible businesses.
Flemish Brabant, the youngest of the five provinces of Flanders, was created in 1995 when the single province of Brabant was split into three: a Flemish part, a Walloon part, and the capital region of Brussels. Since then this area of Flanders has been known for its fascinating and varied character. Over a total area of 2,106 km2, spread over 65 communities, you will find more than 1 million cordial and hospitable people who are proud of their province and its individual character.
