Two disabled women visiting Cologne in March for the first time, one in a wheelchair, the other one pushing! :o) Any advise on how 'disabled-friendly' Cologne is would be much appreciated. We'll be staying at the Flandrischer Hof and hope to visit most of the usual tourist attractions, if that's going to be possible.
Hi from a wheelchair user living near Cologne.
Cologne is a big city, so most public places will have some degree of wheelchair access. Unfortunately, my own findings are that access is tricky in places (look at some of my tips on Cologne). I don't know about that hotel, Flandrischer Hof.
Access at the airport is very good overall. The red cross is taking care of transferring wheelchaired passengers from the plane to the terminals. Terminal 2 is excellent, Terminal 1 may offer some difficulties resulting in detours and lack of restrooms.
Most buses have wheelchair ramps, but lots of complaints from disabled folks about rude bus drivers not willing to operate them. The S-Bahn (metro tram/train is the real problem, even though one of the major junction points in the city center, Neumarkt, has been made accessible recently.
Access at the main railway station is existent, but it is very difficult around the station -- that includes the "Domplatte" -- the higher ground around the Cathedral. It is very difficult to get to the Cathedral from the Hauptbahnhof.
The pedestrian Zone is okay, terrain slopes towards the Rhine, some cobblestones there.
Please email me for detailed questions.
