The possibilities for the perfect time out from everyday life seem limitless. Thanks to great offers and good connections, almost everyone can choose their dream holiday according to their mood. But almost everyone. If you are dependent on a wheelchair or travel with a baby carriage, you have to plan the stay significantly more intensively. Arrival and departure, the accommodation itself as well as the leisure activities on the ground must be barrier-free, so that it is really a holiday without borders for all.
The picturesque Waldecker Land region in Nordhessen has made parts of the tourist and gastronomic offer accessible to people with disabilities. The best example is the Kellerwald-Edersee National Park, which offers varied offers in the indoor area with exciting expositions at the NationalparkZentrum Kellerwald and the BuchenHaus, but also offers various possibilities in the outdoor area. For 12 years, wheelchair users have been able to explore the unique nature from the horse-drawn carriage. In addition, the employees of the National Park’s workshop built a viewing platform at the Hagenstein, which also allows wheelchair users and families with baby carriages to enjoy the view of the beautiful Edertal valley without obstacles. This is also the case with tours with natural park guides on the Baumkronenweg Edersee, where you dive deep into the forest of life. The animal forestry learns the big and small, the running and the handicapped then in the WildtierPark Edersee know. But also with other highlights of the region, wheelchair users get their money’s worth. For example in Willingen with a breathtaking excursion with the Ettelsberg cable car cableway or at the Edersee with a rapid ride on the Sommerrodelbahn. If you like, you can venture into the Maislabyrinth at the Edersee with a wheelchair and after the successful completion of the exit you can strengthen yourself with a tarte flambée. Here, too, the offer for wheelchair users was once again expanded.
