Barrier-free Wiesbaden

Every person has a right to inclusive contact with other people. In Wiesbaden, there have already been many opportunities and measures for years that make it easier for people with disabilities to participate in life.

Thanks to a large number of tactile city maps around Wiesbaden, those who are visually impaired or blind can find the streets in the city centre as well as all important sights and (administrative) buildings and thus orientate themselves more easily in Wiesbaden. 

Mobility is a core element of independence. An increasing number of bus stops are being equipped with acoustic announcements to make travel information available to all passengers. 

The website "Wiesbaden barrierefrei" (opens in a new tab) was initiated so that persons with disabilities can better organise and plan their everyday lives. Residents of Wiesbaden and visitors to the city can inform themselves there about barrier-free accessibility in public buildings and other facilities in the city such as hotels and restaurants including their furnishings and fittings. Furthermore, there is plenty of useful information all about the topic of barrier-free accessibility, advice and event tips. The site is barrier-free in as far as possible and can therefore also be used by blind persons. A read-aloud function is also integrated. 

Barrier-free events

Barrier-free in the RMCC

The event locations are also committed to this topic. The planners at the RheinMain CongressCenter (RMCC) have undertaken to implement this fundamental right in a service and comfort-oriented manner. In this way, not only the guests and visitors profit from barrier-free programmes, but the event organisers too. 

In summer 2021, the RMCC was certified according to the criteria of the nationwide certification system for barrier-free travel offers "Reisen für Alle (“Trips for everyone”).

The relevant data on barrier-free accessibility on site were gathered by an independent expert and evaluated by the certification office in Berlin.
