AccessibleEU Belgium - Bruges: Building bridges between heritage and inclusion. Discover accessible heritage in Bruges. (24-NW-BE-01)

These AccessibleEU site visits will take a look at projects with heritage value from various perspectives. Buildings, environments, experiences, and even mobility within the heritage context will be addressed.

Establishing collaboration between the sectors of immovable heritage and accessibility is not always straightforward in practice. That's why these site visits will bring together different target groups to network and to showcase the success factors contributing to accessible heritage projects. Participating experts will share their insights and demonstrate them on various locations in Bruges.
