Visiting city attractions

In Amsterdam itself, a number of buildings have been adjusted to accommodate wheelchair users. A few taxi companies offer special wheelchair taxis to transport visitors in wheelchairs comfortably around the city. Most museums and attractions are also accessible to wheelchair users and those who are partially sighted. Several canal cruise operators make use of wheelchair lifts, such as the Blue Boat Company. If you'd like to experience the city like a local, Star Bikes has a bicycle in its range designed especially to accommodate disabled visitors.
