    That’s the place, indeed. I agree that it should be indicated better.

    Antwerp, Mechelen (Planckendael) and Ghent: sounds like a great tour! Keep me posted, here or on accessible-at-visitflanders.com.

    Hey there!

    I would also like to contribute with a list of 6 Wheelchair Accessible Things to Do in Brussels. After participating in the Destinations for All World Summit on Accessible Tourism I had the chance to do an accessible guided tour around Brussels.

    It is definitely true that the accessibility is far from perfect, but still, there are some quite nice things to do in Europe’s capital city.

    I love the art in your title pages.  Is it yours?  It adds real character.

    Good to see that there are some great museums available (I love museums) that are putting an effort in to be wheelchair accessible, but yikes those are expensive taxis!

    I saw this sign near my hotel in Brussels (nice big letters in the window so it is hard to miss!).  It seems that this organization is a lobbying group for the EU.  Hopefully they are making headway!  525B8EE8-6678-451A-92B4-72BDB4938204

    I am also on the lookout for accessible toilets in Brussels, but public toilets in general are few and far between (or just difficult to spot!).

    Here is one that stood out  with a wheelchair mark near the square of Sainte-Catherine.  You need to put in a few coins to use it.

    This area is a kilometre or so from the Grand Palace touristy area, but has lots of outdoor cafes and areas to stroll.

    Hopefully, though they have already been in existence for nearly 25 years. 🙂
