Accommodation for Deaf and Hard of Hearing and for Blind and Visually Impaired

Innsbruck Hotel is a specialist accommodation that caters specifically for deaf and hard of hearing and for blind and partially sighted people.

Accommodations are “visual” and “aural” – visual relies on a person’s sight; aural relies on a person’s hearing abilities. Special aural amenities include TVs with wireless headphones, hearing aids, amplification devices and induction loop audio systems. Visual amenities include signaling devices—a flashing light alerts individuals to a door knock, ringing telephone or gives alarm.

Innsbruck Hotel offers endless opportunities for enjoying the mountains and having a great holiday in Tirol. There are designated accessible doors for customers not wishing to use revolving doors, and glass doors are marked to prevent accidents. Handrails, obstacle-free floors and aural signaling devices provide support, guidance and safety. Of course, guide dogs are welcome and can remain with you in your room.
