Guided Tours

The vast majority of our guided tours may be arranged to be barrier-free. If your group includes a larger number of persons using wheelchairs or walkers (rollators), we nevertheless recommend that you register or at least inform yourself more specifically beforehand. We also offer a special guided tour for blind and vision-impaired persons, entitled “Feeling Frankfurt”. During this tour, participants experience Frankfurt with senses other than sight, such as touch and taste. It is also possible to book a sign-language interpreter for groups with deaf or hearing-impaired persons.

Sights

Not all of Frankfurt’s tourist attractions are easily accessible to handicapped persons. As an alternative, quite a few of them have included special offers and services for persons with disabilities as part of their visitor programmes. Aside from stepless access, many offer special assistance for vision or hearing-impaired persons. Particularly recommendable is the Historical Museum Frankfurt, which was reconstructed and reopened with the aspects of inclusion and barrier freedom at the forefront of its efforts. Frankfurt naturally also offers a wide range of possibilities in the areas of culture and the arts, special events, shopping, and wining and dining.

Accommodation

Most Frankfurt hotels dispose over one or more wheelchair- accessible rooms, the hotel with the greatest number of such guest-rooms being the MOXY Frankfurt East with 20 barrierfree rooms.
