Advice for wheelchair users

Due to the flood dikes the only oppor­tuni­ty to board a ship at ground level and free of steps is at Ludwigs­burg-Hohen­eck and Hessig­heim.
(Please under­stand that unfor­­tu­­nately we cannot help wheel­­chair users when boarding. We kindly ask for your under­stand­ing.)
