You can relax and recharge your batteries in the Vulkaneifel Therme, the only Glauber salt thermal spa in Germany, or get that seaside feeling in the salt cave at the Südpalz Therme.

Excursion tips for blind or partially sighted guests

Accessible leisure tips

There is a great deal to discover in Rhineland‑Palatinate: Fascinating natural landscapes, such as the breathtaking river valleys or the deep blue maars of the Eifel, all shaped by the forces of nature over thousands of years. The Hunsrück-Hochwald National Park is young by comparison but no less impressive. There are tremendous views from the Skywalk on the Erbeskopf, the highest mountain in Rhineland‑Palatinate at an altitude of 816 m.

You can experience thousands of years of history first-hand in Trier, the oldest city in Germany. A visit to the Stöffel Park or the Dinosaur Park provides a glimpse of times gone by.

For those looking for the healthy option, there are traditional spa resorts offering both inviting spa gardens and accessible spas and other health treatments.

‘Tourism for All’: What’s the idea?

‘Tourism for All’ is a nationwide accessibility accreditation scheme. It has been developed over several years of collaboration and coordination with a range of stakeholder associations as part of the ‘Tourism for All’ project sponsored by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

For the ‘Tourism for All’ certification, a specially trained inspector surveys the accessibility of a given site based on a detailed catalogue of criteria. The data is then viewed and evaluated by the federal testing body and detailed test reports are produced. These test reports give travellers an exact idea of what things are like before they set off, allowing them to make their own decisions as to whether the facilities are suitable for their needs.
