A new report looks at the most accessible cities in Europe, taking wheelchair access, potential for assistance, number of adapted toilets and more into consideration, so that everyone can enjoy a weekend away.
While we already know about the cheapest city breaks and the best places to go for couples, many of us aren’t able to travel easily without knowing what support is in place when we get to the chosen destination.
Alpharooms has studied the top 15 attractions in each European city, analysing how easy they are to visit for those with limited mobility, or who are reliant on assistance from others. Factors taken into consideration also include public transport access and hotels.
The 10 most accessible cities in Europe
- Dublin, Ireland
- Vienna, Austria
- Berlin, Germany
- London, United Kingdom
- Amsterdam, Netherlands
- Milan, Italy
- Barcelona, Spain
- Rome, Italy
- Prague, Czech Republic
- Paris, France
Interestingly, the ranking differed slightly when looking at just tourist attractions, public transport and hotels – London takes the top spot for the highest number of accessible landmarks and museums, which the likes of Buckingham Palace and Tower of London, surprisingly, are the most accessible attractions within the city.
Dublin, Vienna and Barcelona, meanwhile, are the best for accessible public transport, while London and Dublin, again, rank highly for accessible hotels.
