ACCESSIBLE ATTRACTIONS: Munich, Germany
Our ratings are...
Fully Accessible - You can access all of the attraction, with no problem, in any type of wheelchair.
Mostly Accessible - You can access most of the attraction, and all of the important parts of it, with your wheelchair.
Partially Accessible - You can access a good deal of the attraction but some parts are inaccessible and some important parts you'll miss.
Inaccessible - Kind of speaks for itself, avoid if you're in a wheelchair.
Here's Munich, Germany...
Viktulienmarkt - Partially Accessible. The market and beer garden are accessible. The lines through the snack bars might be tight and you'll need to find a big restaurant nearby for accessible restrooms.
Dachau - Mostly Accessible. This dark, depressing monument to the Holocaust is Nazi Germany's first concentration camp but is a worthwile stop to keep that memory alive. Except for an exact replica barracks, the site is fully accessible.
Augustinerkellar - Fully Accessible. Our favorite biergarten in Munich is near the train station and is our favorite eating and drinking place in the city.
Frauenkirche - Mostly Accessible. Enter through the side of the church for a barrier-free entrance. No restrooms (see below) but, other than that, you can see pretty much all of this beautiful church with it's royal tombs and devil's footprint.
Englisher Garden - Mostly Accessible. The city's grand park features large, grassy fields, a couple of beer gardens, riverfront frolicking, and even surfing.
Olympic Park - Mostly Accessible. The headquarters of the 1972 Olympics has been turned into a beautiful park, across the street from the BMW factory. You can tour the stadium and even swim in the same pool that Mark Spitz won his seven gold medals in.
BMW Welt- Fully Accessible. Display of great vehicles from one of Germany's legendary car makers. Watch new owners take delivery on a special platform in the middle of the space, fresh off the factory line.
Marienplatz - Mostly Accessible. The city's main square is also it's most fashionable shopping district. Grab a beer at one of the many sidewalk restaurants and get that unique souvenir to take home. Make sure you catch a performance of the Glockenspiel on the City Hall tower while you're here.
Bathrooms - the hard part is finding a place to go but you can get a list at the following link: Barrier Free Toilets in Munich.
