Accessible Toilet

There are two accessible toilets on the ground floor. When entering via door 1 turn left and you will find it on the left side. The toilet is equipped with two foldable support handles each furnished with toilet paper holders and flush buttons. The mirror is regrettably a bit high but the room offers enough space to maneuver.
