Fauteuil roulant
The ground floor of the Erasmus House and the gardens are accessible to wheelchair users. Visitors with reduced mobility are invited to give prior notice of their visit so that access ramps can be put in place and they can be welcomed under optimal conditions. We regret that the Beguinage cannot be visited as the doorways in these listed buildings are too narrow.

Dogs accompanying visitors with a disability are accepted in the Erasmus House and the Beguinage.
