Angers & accessibility

 

For an accessible visit of Angers, follow the visitor route with the ‘Tourism and Handicap’ label.

Angers Tourist Office in Place Kennedy is on hand all year round to help you prepare your trips. Drop in to see us or contact us by email or phone.

Our team is trained to assist you. Claire is trained in French sign language (level B1.6) and will be glad to advise you when she is on duty. Please feel free to contact us in advance of your visit to find out when she will be on duty at the welcome desk that week.

Discover our easy-access route (‘Circuit Confort’), and the various accessible visitor sites.

The Angers team is involved in the assessment process for the Tourism and Handicap label. The Tourist Office also works with the website Accessible.net in order to provide reliable and detailed information on the accessibility features of tourist attractions. Enter ‘Angers’ in the search box to find links to accessible sites and facilities.

Accessible.net is a free website that allows you to search for accessible places. All categories of public places are featured: museums, hotels, restaurants, administrative buildings, performance venues, sports facilities, etc.

The accessibility details are entered by the head of operations for the establishment for all categories of disability (physical, hearing, visual and mental). This information is subject to an open data licence agreement and can be reproduced freely.
