Hansa Park for visitors with disabilities

At Hansa Park, the adventure park by the sea that has all these thrills in abundance, enabling people with disabilities to experience hours of fun and excitement has long been a priority. On a number of occasions, Hansa Park has earned the quality mark for accessible building design awarded by Sozialverband Deutschland e.V.

And with good reason: many of Hansa Park's rides, 'Pow-Wow' and 'Sturmvogel' for example, are accessible to wheelchair users, and there is sloped access to almost all the park. Spaces for viewers in wheelchairs are available at shows at the Varieté Theatre, the Aquarena, the 3D cinema and the children's theatre, and services also include free accessible parking, accessible toilets throughout the park and free wheelchair hire. For wheelchair users, admission is free. There are concessionary rates for disabled people (including groups) and their companions.

Hansa Park's wonderful location on the southern Baltic makes for a very special outing. Many rides - from the ones that have you on the edge of your seat to the more sedate - are designed to blend in with the natural coastal landscape and are unique to Hansa Park.
