Brussels is a man-sized city where cultural life and business world mingle with history and folklore. If during the week a lot of business men visit Brussels to negociate or make contacts, during the week-end, the business neighbourhoods get empty and all activities focus on the city centre.
The city is not really adapted for disabled persons; however, you can visit it with a certain level of comfort. Still, some services like adapted public toilets, accessible cash dispensers or accessible phone booths are cruelly lacking. In terms of accommodation, Brussels offers a large selection of hotels.
Few are really accessible to a person in a wheelchair travelling on her own. Often, a step at the entrance, a door which is just too narrow, handrails inappropriately placed, wrongly arranged bathrooms or even narrow elevators will be the obstacles which you will be facing.
To find a restaurant should not be a problem and the choice of food styles is almost unlimited in tourist areas. In the summer, a lot of places propose a terrace which facilitates the access of perons with reduced mobility. Nevertheless, very few restaurants are perfectly accessible and fitted with adapted toilets.
