Montpellier might not
be one of the best-known cities in Europe. But we think that it certainly deserves
to be. This beautiful French city is an historic gem, with a fascinating
medieval centre. But it is also a vibrant, modern cultural hotspot that makes
for the perfect getaway.
Most impressive of all
is the effort the city has gone, to make as many of its sights and facilities
as accessible as possible. The city actively encourages its tourist attractions
and shops to be open to all – and the results are impressive.
It’s best to think of
Germany’s second city, Munich, as a capital in its own right. It is the state city
of Bavaria, for one. But it also has the scale and grandeur of a capital city
too. Packed full of art galleries, museums, great restaurants and of course,
beer halls, it is the perfect getaway.
Like the national
capital, Berlin, it has a rich history all of its own. There is plenty to
explore over a few days. So, here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to the very best
accessible sights that Munich has to offer.
It’s not one of the
largest capital cities in Europe, but Ljubljana is rapidly becoming one of the
most accessible. This hidden gem is the perfect destination for a short break
and it’s often referred to as a ‘mini Prague’. With its beautiful Baroque architecture,
medieval old town and rich history it is easy to see why.
But while the
comparison is a fair one, we think that Ljubljana deserves a lot more attention
than it gets. So, here is Quingo Scooters’ guide to some of the best accessible
things to do in Ljubljana.
Take in the view from Ljubljana Castle
Most castles weren’t
originally designed to be accessible, but the team at Ljubljana Castle have
done an excellent job of transforming this historic building.
There is a lot more to
Brussels than waffles and politicians, as we discovered recently. Because of
its political importance, Brussels has become a true melting pot of different European
cultures. And it isn’t a big city either, which means it is easy to get around.
The great news is that many of Brussels’ best sights are also fully accessible
to those of us who use a mobility scooter.
Great food, beautiful
architecture and friendly people make Brussels the perfect choice for anyone
looking for an accessible getaway.
Poland’s capital is
often ignored by visitors to the country in favour of the historic royal city
of Kraków. But we think that is a real shame: Warsaw is a wonderful city, with its
very own UNESCO World Heritage Site at its historic heart.
It is a city that has
seen some dramatic events over the years and has many fascinating historical
sites. With incredible architecture, great museums and galleries and peaceful
parks, there is more than enough to keep visitors happy.
