Trip Report Seeing Austria,Germany, and the Netherlands by wheelchair

Jump to last reply

Last fall my wife and I made reservations for a cruise from Vienna to Amsterdam beginning in late May. Seemed like an easy way to see part of Europe that we weren't very familiar with, since I was planning to have knee surgery in early February. As it turned out recovery from knee surgery has taken a lot longer than I expected, and by the time we left I was still having quite a bit of pain walking.
So beforehand we arranged for wheelchairs for each span of the trip (D.C. to London to Vienna and back from Amsterdam to London to D.C.) and checked wheelchair availability for the museums that we planned to visit.
It turned out to be a brilliant solution and allowed me to save my walking for sightseeing. The only museum that required advance notice was the Kunsthistoriches in Vienna (the day before) and all of them had wheelchairs. And the airport porters were great. I strongly recommend it for anyone with mobility issues.
