Munich for tourists with disabilities

With a wider range of products now available, the city has improved its services for tourists with disabilities. One example - the brochure "Munich for tourists with disabilities" - is full of useful tips. The aim is to make a stay in Munich as barrier-free as possible, with all the information presented in the same format for the first time. The brochure has practical hints about getting to and from Munich, public transport, museums, theatres, hotels, leisure activities, accessible guided tours and advice on how to make the most of your visit to the Oktoberfest.

For people who are deaf or hard of hearing, Munich tourist information also offers guided tours in German, Greek, International Sign Language and American Sign Language.
