Tyrol as a tourist destination will continue to develop with regard to freedom from barriers. Especially in the context of the anti-discrimination law, due to come into effect in January 2016, freedom from barriers is to be enforced in all areas. While there has been some improvement in public transport, there is still a great deal to be done in tourism.
Hiking country Tyrol - barrier-free?!
Having no barriers is of great advantage to us all. Not only people in wheelchairs, but also senior citizens, walking frame users, families with a baby buggy and travellers all profit from barrier-free paths and easy access.
At the moment Tyrol already has a few hiking trails such as round the Piller Moor, by the Piburger See lake or by the eastern shore of the Achensee lake. But in some areas there is still a lot more to be done!
You will find a selection of barrier-free hiking trails and excursions here.
