Information platform databus on accessible travel and cultural destinations for blind and partially sighted people
An information platform is offered by the German Federation of the Blind and Partially Sighted (DBSV) which offers detailed information about cultural places with special offers for this specific target group. 307 museums are as well part of the platform. They offer special guided tours in which objects may be touched, audio-guides, tactile models or location plans describing the way from the nearest bus stop to the museum.
In www.databus.dbsv.org the offers can be searched following the categories exhibition, sight, event, restaurants and hosting, mobility and guiding services. A directed search for specific cities or following a postcode is also possible.
The coordination team on tourism of DBSV is planning to further develop databus by enhancing the search tool and by adding offers in Austria and Switzerland.
