Everyone is welcome in Antwerp. As a city we attach great importance to the accessibility of public buildings and public transportation, and the parking opportunities for people with disabilities. Here is some useful information for preparing your visit.
The City of Antwerp has always taken the lead in terms of accessibility. We have added special times in Grote Markt, which make life much more pleasant for the blind and the visually impaired. Or how about our visitor centre in Grote Markt, which has wheelchair access? Pop in to plan your visit.
Antwerp is a city with a history. Which is why it also has narrow alleys, cobbled streets and historic dwellings. Some of the museums and restaurants also are more difficult to access. But most museums and attractions are open and accessible to everyone. Many restaurants, hotels and museums in Antwerp have special facilities for wheelchair users and the blind or the visually impaired. Here is a handy overview.
