Public-private partnership to open historical city centre to all


The accessibility of historical buildings and city spaces must be improved, not only for people with disabilities, but for everyone.

This is the focus of the joint European initiative, the League of Historical Accessible Cities, under the aegis of the EFC.

To date, nine foundations and six cities from five countries are participating in the project.

The Danish contribution is backed by a partnership of four Danish foundations and a municipality who have joined forces to open the centre of the historic city of Viborg, and to show how an active and accessible cultural heritage can create growth and increase tourism in historic cities.
