There are only a limited number of such mobility devices and hence prior reservations is strongly recommended. Should the equipment not be pre-reserved, the visitor is subject to its respective availability. The assembly time for visitor manual wheelchairs takes around 20 minutes. Visitors may make usage of the equipment throughout 90 minutes with a 15 minute allowance period before returning it to the site agreed.

Some of the Park’s main sites and routes may be toured by a wheelchair accessible electric vehicle (paid service).

There is a ramped route as from the entranceway as far as the Palace with particular attention needed for steeply sloping sections. We would recommend that this is only attempted with an assistant.

Guided tours may be requested with any special visitor needs indicated on making the respective reservations.

The recently refurbished and now accessible cafeteria and store also include disabled person friendly WC facilities.
