Experience Hamburg barrier-free and make your stay in the Hanseatic city as varied as possible. Here you will find an overview of wheelchair-accessible hotels and restaurants, accessible museums and sights as well as tips for a day trip with a wheelchair. We have also put together inspiration for travelling for blind or visually impaired visitors, deaf or hearing-impaired guests and people with limited mobility.
As a gateway to the world, Hamburg is open to everyone. Hamburg is also committed to providing people with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy worry-free travel experiences. Almost all public transport stops in the entire city centre (hvv Hamburger Verkehrsverbund) are barrier-free. Wheelchair-accessible hotels offer a wide range of options and museums and galleries cater to the needs of people with disabilities with special offers.
Accessible museums, theatres and churches - many of the city's sights and highlights are wheelchair accessible. Enjoy the view of Hamburg's harbour after taking the lift up to the Elbphilharmonie Plaza or reserve a wheelchair seat at one of Hamburg's major musicals. Miniatur Wunderland has special opening hours just for people with disabilities and the Maritime Museum, for example, offers guided tours for blind visitors. A very special experience for visitors with and without disabilities is the Dialoghaus, which helps to overcome barriers and increase mutual understanding in its exhibitions. If you are interested in Hamburg's city history, it is best to take part in an accessible city tour or harbour tour.
A good night's sleep and excellent food are as much a part of any city break as a fish sandwich is to Hamburg. There is a wide range of accessible accommodation in the city. The Scandic Hamburg Emporio is a prime example in terms of accessibility. Employees with and without disabilities welcome their guests together at the Stadthaushotel. Many accessible restaurants in Hamburg also have ground-level entrances and wheelchair-accessible toilets.
For travellers with disabilities, a visit to Hamburg often means additional planning.
