Visit.Brussels with Handy.Brussels !

Monday 16 April 2018

In the continuity of the collaboration that existed before with “Brussels for All”, Handy.Brussels works in partnership with visit.brussels.
For several years, visit.brussels, the communication and tourism agency for the Brussels-Capital Region has made every effort to develop tourist activities tailored to people with disabilities. A section containing accessible places for people with reduced mobility has also been added to the visit.brussels website: visit.brussels/forall

visit.brussels also takes care to raise awareness among stakeholders in order to implement accessible and sustainable certification for current and future infrastructure.

Patrick Bontinck, CEO of visit.brussels explains: “The city’s layout is unique. With the city being divided into upper and lower sections, and considering all the cobblestones, and irregular edges, exploring our beautiful Capital can pose a challenge to a person with reduced mobility.
The ‘Handy.Brussels’ site helps assess the accessibility of hotels, museums and other tourist attractions for people with disabilities.”
