The Hortus is reasonably accessible for wheelchair users. Some places in the greenhouses are unfortunately not accessible. The garden paths in the Hortus are covered with gravel.
For people with mobility problems, the Hortus has an AVO wheelchair. You can reserve this wheelchair via firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can always visit the Hortus with your mobility scooter. Please note that many paths in the garden / greenhouses are limited accessible for mobility scooters. The paths are covered with gravel and in some places very narrow.
We ask you to limit your speed in the garden to that of the walking visitors. This to protect yourself, the other visitors and our collection.
There is a accessible toilet in the Hortus café. You can reach this via the separate wheelchair entrance behind the terrace.
