As in the previous years the event focuses on making temporarily accessible those places usually inapproachable for the handicapped or make the approach at least easier. The effort is not only to help the handicapped to see some museums, sightseeings or attractions for free or with the discount, but also to point out the problems they have to deal with every day. Within the framework of this activity there are tours for the handicapped in the town centre, in the castle and in the museum there are planned   touching tours for the blind.

This year´s program will be enriched with for example Museum of Architecture and Art, climber´s wall, possibility to taste shells prepared by Belgian partner Kiwanis Club, or swimming afternoon combined with games.
