Many megalithic monuments only can be reached by small paths, some tombs have a very narrow entrance. Alas they are difficult or impossible to visit by people in a wheelchair, or they are not worth the effort for blind people. Below some examples of accessible megaliths witch are also interesting for blind people.
Recommended in Belgium:
Wéris, the most important megalithic site in Belgium,
is fortunately also interesting for blind people and people in a wheelchair.
Pierre Brunehault in Holain near Tournay (Province Hainaut)
is standing Belgium's most imposing megalith. The stone can be approached by
car. Blind people can use their stick to feel the measures...
Dolmensteen Tervuren. Situated in the pleasant park of Tervuren
(Vlaams Brabant) this stone is worth a little effort. The large park avenues are no obstacles for wheelchairs when the weather is dry.
stone's surface looks like a map in relief and is very touchable for blind people.
Recommended in other countries:
Hunebedden Drenthe, Netherlands. Although some of the 'hunebedden'
(passage tombs) can only be reached by small sandy paths, sufficient monuments
have a nearby parking place. Most 'hunebedden' are easy to sense. The 'Hunebeddencentrum'
in Borger is also easy accessible for wheelchairs.
Cairn Gavrinis, Morbihan (France) Bretagne. The cairn only
can be reached by boat, this can be difficult for people in a wheelchair, but it
is without doubt the most interesting megalithic monument for blind people! The richness
of beautiful gravures is easy to 'read' by blind people. Sure this cairn is
worth the voyage to France!
Stonehenge (G.B.). Over day the monument can only be seen
from a short distance, walking between the stones is not allowed. If you ask
special permission (do this in advance) you can get access the monument after
closing time to walk between the stone and to touch them. Audio information and
info in Braille is available on location, good facilities for people in a
