Visitors to Bruges with mobility problems using a wheelchair or mobility scooter should be aware of certain problems which need consideration when touring Bruges.  Because of its age and construction some areas are not very wheelchair friendly . Drop kerbs are not readily available and some exhibits require the use of stairs which excludes the disabled from a visit . The cobbled areas of Bruges vary by degrees with some very easy to cover and some , especially the older cobbles can be a really bumpy ride ! 

Please note that not all Hotels have wheelchair access so double check for the "wheelchair" sign on the Hotels web site .

To be fair to Bruges many attractions are becoming more user friendly to the disabled traveller but certainly it still has a lot more to do!
