Ljubljana by Wheelchair

Ljubljana has launched an app Ljubljana by Wheelchair, which provides helpful information for the visitors of Ljubljana, who are in a wheelchair and looking for trustworthy information.

Ljubljana by Wheelchair

Ljubljana offers a great number of accessible tourist sights, hotels, restaurants and other interesting experiences. Just recently, an app "Ljubljana by Wheelchair" has been launched, which was co-financed by Visit Ljubljana. It includes the most important information one might need and offers general information on Ljubljana and an offline map of the city. The following categories are included: SLEEP, DRINK, EAT, SEE, DO, SHOP and TOILET, which list the points of interest accessible to the disabled persons (e.g. restaurants in the EAT category). By clicking a certain point of interest, one can check its basic information and the accessibility symbols. The app is available to download in App Store and Google Play.

In addition, Visit Ljubljana offers to rent the SPEED3X electric wheelchair trailer, which allows wheelchair users to move around easier and faster, and overcome long distances. It is extremely easy to attach to the wheelchair: the connector is adjustable in height and width; therefore it is suitable for practically every wheelchair without any special adjustments of the wheelchair. The battery’s range is up to 40km with one charging. Driving with the SPEED3X trailer allows wheelchair users to join their friends or relatives on tours by bicycle or on foot, while not overloading their shoulders by pushing the wheelchair.

The electric wheelchair trailer is available for rent at the Slovenian Tourist Information Centre (STIC) at Krekov trg 10 during working hours:

  • 1 October – 31 May: from Monday to Friday from 8.00am to 7.00pm: Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from 9.00am to 5.00pm
  • 1 June – 30 September: every day from 8.00am to 9.00pm.

You can rent the electric wheelchair trailer free of charge and return it by the end of the working hours. A valid personal document is required for the rental.
