[VIDEO] Case study – Accessible guiding tours in Bruges

One of the pilot projects or case studies in Flanders is “Hello Bruges”. During two guided tours, one for hearing impaired and one for visually impaired people, official tour guides (powered by Gidsenkring Brugge vzw) interacted with deaf and blind people.

The tour was composed especially for this purpose: several culinary and ‘sensorial’ locations and museums in Bruges were compressed into a four-hour visit (Market Square and Belfry, Burg Square and City Hall, Blind Donkey Street, Fish Market, Choco-Story and Frietmuseum (Fries museum)).

The goal of these tours was to check how the tour guides approached their audience and what they could do to improve this.
