‘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.
