Catalogue - Barrier-free access on holiday

Thanks to the diversity of its landscape, historical monuments and cultural attractions, the Liberec Region is the right choice for planning a holiday for physically disabled visitors.

The Jizera Mountains offer an extensive network of sign-posted paths, varying in length, with gentle gradients, good surfaces and a whole range of attractive places. Sections of these paths even offer barrier-free access along wooden paths across protected peat moors, equipped with special map displays for wheelchair users. More detailed information can be found on the map “the Jizera Mountains for wheelchair users”, which can be obtained at the information centre in Bedřichov or Jablonec nad Nisou. The marked paths are intended for wheelchair users when planning their trips but are equally suitable for families with small children on bikes, with prams and pushchairs and for seniors. The gentle hilled landscapes of Bohemian Paradise and Česká Lípa Region also provide a whole range of ideas for undemanding trips. During the winter season you can make use of the offers of weekend or weeklong holidays for the physically challenged, which are organised in winter resorts in the Giant Mountains. Local resorts offer a complete range of facilities, from barrier-free access to accommodation, restaurants and winter equipment rental, to specially trained instructors. If your interests lie more with cultural experiences, we particularly recommend the Bohemian Paradise Museum in Turnov, which is equipped with barrier-free access in the whole building and descriptions of the exhibits are written in Braille. There is a section on mineralogy and ethnography in the haptics part of the exhibition.

A pleasant rest can be had in the spa towns of the Liberec Region - Libverda and Kundratice - which focus their treatment on locomotive organs disorders. In the local spas you can find a sought-after peace and quiet, qualified staff, beautiful surroundings and also barrier-free access to and within the spa buildings. The castles, chateaus and cultural institutions in our region are currently striving for full access to their exhibitions. For tours of the whole buildings assistance is currently still necessary. Many museums and galleries have at least barrier-free ground floor access and many castles have barrier-free exteriors such as parks and courtyards.

The Liberec Region together with individual public transport operators strive for maximum ease and improvement of comfort for the physically challenged. Obstacles at train stations, platforms and restrooms have gradually been removed. Public transport buses have been changed for the new barrier-free access ones, which also help seniors and families with prams. The number of train stations with mobile raising platforms which makes the boarding and disembarking of wheel chair users easier has also increased.

A great deal of accommodation and restaurants are now with barrier-free access, from the entrances to hotels, pensions and restaurants, reserved parking spaces and barrier-free restrooms, to specially equipped rooms for wheel chair users, fulfilling all technical requirements.
