Austria offers a wide range of accessible holidays and leisure facilities for those travelling with a disability.
Travelling with a Disability
Austria is a fantastic country to explore and boasts a wealth of splendid cities, hands-on museums, quaint villages, active experiences and cultural events all set against the most breath-taking scenery. Austria’s world-renowned hospitality extends itself to all visitors, including those using a wheelchair, with limited mobility and with hearing and sight impairments. Barrier-free Austria ensures that you can experience all that there is to offer without needing to worry about getting around.
Getting to and around Austria is incredibly easy by road, air and rail, and the Austrian Federal Railways offer discount tickets and travel assistance to those who need it. Mobility aids for wheelchair users are available at almost 100 train stations across Austria.
There is a wide range of accessible accommodation and the hotel guide for disabled travellers "Barrierefrei übernachten in Österreich" (Accessible Accommodation in Austria) features a list of hotels and is published by the Austrian Ministry for Economy and Labour.
Euregio Barrierefrei is an information platform for accessible holidays in Austria and offers holiday-related information for wheelchair travellers and all other mobility-impaired guests.
Another information platform for disabled travellers is Accessible Holidays (available in German only).
