Barrier-free in the Hanseatic city: There are many ways of having barrier-free mobility in Lübeck. Here you'll find some useful information on barrier-free travel using bus, train and car in Lübeck.

Mobile by bus
All buses can be lowered and are, therefore, wheelchair accessible. Ramps also facilitate better access into vehicles. There are controls for signalling the doors to be opened on the inside and outside of the bus. Attendants are also on hand to provide assistance with getting on and off.
Blind and visually impaired guests are provided with special orientation and touch maps of the central bus station and Gustav-Radbruch-Platz from the ServiceCenter at the central bus station (ZOB).

Mobile by train
The main train station in  Lübeck is fully accessible with lifts to the platforms. The DB Service Point is open until 10 pm. The DB Travel Centre is barrier-free, tactile guidance strips for the visually impaired with long sticks lead the way to the platforms. There is a toilet for disabled users and disabled parking is available in front of the door.
The railway mission organises people to accompany you to the platforms, assists in getting on and off the train, provides a waiting room and information on train connections.
