Services & concessions
Bremen offers people with disabilities numerous services, from wheelchairs (which can be obtained from the tourist information office on Böttcherstraße), to accessible city tours and concessions on many attractions. A selection of these can be found below (this list is by no means exhaustive and is for guidance only).
Even though Bremen is a compact city, it can still take a long time to make your way around it because there is so much to see. If you struggle to get around on foot, you can borrow a wheelchair free of charge from the tourist information office on Böttcherstrasse. All we request is a refundable deposit of €50 and a copy of your ID card or passport.
