The „3 Seaside Resorts” without barriers

Disabled? But without barriers!

On a wheelchair, with a walker, a pram or a white cane. In many places of the “3 Seaside Resorts” you can enjoy your holiday without barriers. It doesn’t matter if you want to enjoy the pretty endless beach, or if you would like an accommodation adjusted to your needs, or amuse your palate without stumbling, or spend an entertaining evening – in the “3 Seaside Resorts” the opportunities for holiday without barriers are constantly being improved.

To avoid that the fine beach sand becomes an obstacle, some of the beach accesses are made of boards, with no steps, through the dunes. Some of them have even got a rubber mat that almost reaches the refreshing Baltic Sea water. And from the “Langer Berg” in Bansin to the polish border most public toilets are adapted to the needs of people with disabilities.

Some hotels and holiday apartments have got sand wheelchairs with very wide wheels. They are not afraid of sand and of water. Many hotels and pensions have adapted themselves to the needs of people with disabilities. So did the leisure facilities in the “3 Seaside Resorts” too.

The world’s smallest zoo, the Tropenhaus in Bansin, the art pavilion in Heringsdorf, the Adventure World of Nature “Naturerlebniswelt”, the theatre tent Chapeau Rouge, the Baltic Sea Thermal Bath, the sports hall “Pommernhalle”, where many events take place, the Maxim Gorki library, and also a ride in a horse-drawn carriage – they are all without barriers. And of course also the three tourist information offices.

A trip through the island? That’s not a problem for the companies Ostseebus GmbH and Usedomer Bäderbahn (UBB). They can drive their customers at any place on the island, even to the polish city of Świnoujście. You can get in their low-floor buses and trains either from the ground-level or by using a ramp.

What would you say about a trip between stones and rocks or a bicycle tour? Even these things are possible in the “3 Seaside Resorts”, with the “Superfour” all -terrain wheelchair or a special bicycle for disabled people. You can get further information from the employees of the tourist information offices.
