Background to the Development of the Pictograms and Check ListsListen to Text: Background to the Development of the Pictograms and Check Lists

In 2008, within the framework of four working groups and in response to an initiative on the part of the Brandenburg Academy of Tourism, representatives from the tourism sector and associations for the disabled agreed to the framework conditions and questionnaires to be used as a basis for registering the facilities and deals on offer in Brandenburg. In the course of this the pictograms relating to the 5 groups of visitors for whom information is recorded in Brandenburg were developed. One section of the questionnaires is based on the Agreement on Objectives "Minimum standards for the categorisation of barrier-free accommodation and catering establishments". In some cases new check lists have also been developed extending beyond the already existing guidelines applicable to the Federal States.


The relevant pictogram will be allocated to all tourist offers which have been identified by a trained data collector and for which detailed information is available. As regards offers for persons suffering from allergies, we also accept a self disclosure. The pictograms are illustrated on the official state website of TMB Tourismus-Marketing Brandenburg GmbH (TMB) www.reiseland-brandenburg.de as well as on this website.
In addition to the illustration on the Internet, the pictograms relating to barrier-free status are also used in all TMB print products for the participating providers. More information is available on our Info sheet.
