    Vienna for Visitors with Special Needs

Dear guests,

Being a person with special needs should not prevent you from traveling. Vienna

    waits for you… You can enjoy Vienna, even though the architects of the Gothic era

    and palace owners of the Baroque age could never have envisioned the innovation of

    wheelchairs. And even today, some buildings are designed with more emphasis on

    architectural eccentricities than on access for persons with special needs in other

    cases, alas, it is simple indifference.

The Vienna City Administration has long offered a number of different services for

    people with special needs, ranging from accessible sidewalks to the special markings

    in underground stations for the visually impaired. But much remains to be done

    both in private enterprise and at historical sights, where the protection of historical

    monuments often makes structural changes difficult.

“More information, less frustration.” This is the motto for these guidelines for our

    visitors with special needs. Do not hesitate to ask us if you cannot find the

    information that you are looking for. You can count on one thing: friendly Viennese

    people who will be happy to help you with any problems.

The information in these guidelines has been thoroughly researched and is up-to-

    date. Of course, circumstances can always change after publication. If you let us

    know of any inaccuracies you find, we will be very grateful and will make the

    necessary updates as soon as possible.

With the Vienna Card, you get unlimited access to Vienna's extensive public

    transportation system for 72 hours including the underground, bus, and streetcar

    (steps!) and receive discounts at many sights. However, many of these sightseeing attractions grant their own discounts to visitors with valid wheelchair-accessible

    identification in such cases, the additional Vienna Card discounts are not applicable. For this reason, the Vienna Card is especially suitable for escorts of persons with

    special needs.

You may obtain the Vienna Card for 18.50 Euro in your Viennese hotel, at the Tourist

    Information Office (1st district, Albertinaplatz, daily from 9 am to 7 pm), at the sales

    and information booths of the Vienna transportation system, or by phone with your

    credit card (Tel. 798 44 00148).

For all phone and fax numbers mentioned, please note that the country code for

    Austria is 43 and the city code for Vienna is 1. For calls made from outside Austria,

    these numbers must be dialed before the number itself.

Published by: Vienna Tourist Board, A-1025 Vienna. Deadline: August 1, 2008. All information subject

    to change. Translator's Note: The first floor, in Vienna, usually denotes the first floor above the ground

    floor. In the US, the first floor is the ground floor. For simplicity's sake, as customs are different in

    English-speaking countries, the term "1. Stock" has been translated as "second floor" throughout.

Hotels and Pensions for Guests with Special Needs

    … are presented by “Vienna Hotels & Information” – a service of the Vienna Tourist Board. The employees of “Vienna Hotels & Information” are always up to date which

    Viennese accommodations offer the proper infrastructure for what special needs, and

    where the appropriate offers and available rooms are to be found. “Vienna Hotels & Information” is glad to advise you and, if you like, can also take care of the bookings

    for you: Tel. +43124 555 and Fax +43124 555666 or info@vienna.info

If you would prefer to choose your own hotel and make your own reservations,

    you can do that here: http://www.wien.info/wtv/book-e.html > You can download an up-to-date list of Vienna hotels and pensions

    here: http://b2b.wien.info/data/hotel-guide-0708.pdf (10 MB) >

In addition, the following hotels have responded to a questionnaire distributed by the

    Vienna Tourist Board in which they declared that their establishment is suitable for

    guests with disabilities. As there are no standard solutions for a number of problems

    facing visitors with disabilities, and as every hotel is eager to take care of its guests

    on an individual basis, we recommend that you contact the hotel of your choice as

    early as possible.
