Germany's main travel destination website includes a page entitled "Germany for all", which highlights barrier free travel amongst other groups including 50+, GLBT (gays lesbians bisexuals transgender), honeymooners, young people and families. Within their barrier free travel includes photos relating to people with mobility, vision, hearing and cognitive disabilities. This approach are being inclusive of all groups is a refreshing approach for a National Tourism Office and is to be commended. Photo 1 depicts a person who is blind enjoying a tactile experience and strongly connects with the most recent academic literature on embodied tourist experiences.
