Accessibility

Accessibility supports the social inclusion of people with disabilities. In view of demographic change and our ageing society as well, unrestricted access and free movement on the event site are important criteria for an event location.

Verified information on accessibility is available about Messe Erfurt. Trained surveyors from  Erfurt Tourismus & Marketing GmbH visited Messe Erfurt for this purpose.
