Guides published to help people with reduced mobility in Brussels

19:49 08/10/2019

Brussels’ regional tourism agency, visit.brussels, has developed two new guides to help make the city better- suited to the needs of people with reduced mobility.

The first is the Handy Events Guide, a practical guide to help organisers make their outdoor events fully accessible.

The guide is available free of charge online and in three languages and is a practical checklist that can be used to organise any event in a public space. It is aimed primarily at organisers, advertisers and events agencies as well as site managers and owners.

The second is be accessible be.brussels - which presents 50 museums and tourist attractions that are accessible. The activities listed in the brochure allow everyone to discover and enjoy museums and attractions fully, and the brochure is free and available in four languages.

Brussels has been working constantly to improve its accessibility to all. It is estimated that almost a third of the city’s residents have some form of reduced mobility.
