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 Salzburg, Austria...

Haupbahnhof - Fully Accessible. The town's train station is where you'll be deposited after a 75 minute train ride from Munich. The buses out front are accessible via the back door (good luck with getting the driver to help you) but be aware that everything you'll want to see is also within easy walking distance to the station.

Cathedral - Mostly Accessible. The church where Mozart was baptized and plied his trade as an organist is easily seen via a chair but restrooms will have to be found elsewhere.

Hohensalzburg - Partially Accessible. Looming on the hilltop, protecting the town, this giant castle is reached via a funicular. The train is accessible via a separate path, follow the ticket taker's directions, and a lift to the train platform. Security guards here are not known for their warmth, let them push the elevator buttons for you. At the top, only the outer perimeter (which includes the restaurant) is accessible to wheelchairs.

St. Peter's Cemetery - Mostly Accessible. The supposed hiding place for the Von Trapp family from the movie 'The Sound of Music' does hold some famous remains, such as Mozart's sister.

Mozart's Birthplace - Inaccessible.

Mozart Family Residence - Fully Accessible. The Mozart family home on the other side of the river from his birthplace is a very nice museum that chair users can take advantage of.
