Brussels on a wheelchair

For ten years now the guide «Brussels for All» contributes to the development of the «tourism for all». Since 2003, AMT Concept offers a diagnosis of accessibility, this guide is also a tool for agencies and tour operators, service providers, transportation or lodging.

The paper edition is a resource guide that is complemented by the website. It offers simple and concise information regarding accessibility. More useful details and photos are available on the site with specific comments about each place visited by the team of AMT Concept.

AMT Concept provides recommendations to reduce behavioural barriers as well as architectural ones which inhibit disabled tourists to travel in full safety. Today, the lack of information, of adapted equipment and understanding from the tourism industry, forms an obstacle to the development of a discrimination-free tourism.

Let us remark that, for any kind of travel, people need exhaustive information on the state of the infrastructure. A step, a badly calculated door width, a wrongly placed plant can be sources of dependence and weariness for disabled travellers or their travelling assistants.

Significant improvements have been carried out the last few years in Brussels. We have noticed during our latest visits that some hotels and restaurants had carried out transformations in order to host disabled tourists. Several new hotels offer an optimal accessibility for travellers with reduced mobility.
