handicap accessibility

by rchitekt Online Now Aug 31, 2009 at 5:05 AM

We are planning to visit Mont St. Michel. I have read that there are lot of steps and stairs to climb in order to see the town and the Abbey. Is there any elevator or ramp for handicap people? How many steps are involved ?

    There are no lifts for the disabled (although I believe there may be plans to install them in the near future). The official tourist information site has information on disabled access:

    The Grande Rue is quite steep, and there are 350 steps to the Abbey itself.

    It is not too bad to get to the first part of the township. Then it is steady ascent. Just the same you would enjoy the surrounds.Maybe anyone handicapped could enjoy a lesser view from cafes on the right side as you go up.
    If you do go to the top there is an entrance fee.
    Be very careful coming down from the top as you can get lost in the quite dark and windy inside of the Abbey even if you are able. Some choose to return the way they went up. Marg
