A new city guide with accessibility information about Amsterdam has been developed by Accessible Travel Netherlands in close cooperation with design company Field Factors. The city guide provides 5 routes with maps through the different neighbourhoods in Amsterdam. The routes pass by accessible restaurants, museums and sights of interests.
The guide is meant for all visitors to Amsterdam, however especially developed for those who experience limited mobility. The routes are shorter than usual routes, which make them easier to complete. The routes go past many restaurants for regular stops to rest or to relax. Additionally, the guide gives information about the accessibility of transport options and the shopping streets. The guide is meant for users of all ages, seniors, young adults and families with children.
Pick up your printed version of the guide for free at Starbikes Rental in Amsterdam. Address: De Ruyterkade 143, just behind Amsterdam Central Station. At this bike rental a variety of bikes especially adapted for wheelchair users can be rented as well as wheelchairs.

The guide has been developed by Accessible Travel Netherlands in cooperation with two other Amsterdam based companies; Field Factors and Starbikes Rental. The guide was realized with support from Amsterdam Marketing, Provincie Noord-Holland and Nationale Vereniging de Zonnebloem.
The goal of developing this guide was to provide routes with no or very limited steps. Bridges will be found along the routes, but the most challenging bridges have been avoided. The restaurants and sights of interests in the guide are all wheelchair accessible.
