Accessible Travel

Despite being somewhat hillier than other areas in the Low Countries and having many cobblestone streets, Luxembourg is relatively disabled-friendly, as befits one of the three official capitals of the European Union. It’s possible to travel by foot or wheelchair between key places, lifts are commonplace, and pedestrian crossings are equipped for the visually impaired.

If you are travelling on the national railway network as someone with reduced mobility, go to www.cfl.lu and search for 'Information for persons with reduced mobility (PRM)', where you can find out how to book assistance (at least one hour in advance) and search for accessibility at all stops and stations.

Nearly 75% of buses and trams are equipped with manual or electric ramps and have designated wheelchair areas with appropriate seat belts. Stop request buttons are accessible from seated positions, and some are equipped with Braille.

The National Disability Information and Meeting Centre publishes a number of detailed guides, including one for transport and mobility, but only in French and German. The European Network for Accessible Tourism (ENAT; www.accessibletourism.org) also has helpful resources and links.
