Everyone is welcome at Scandic Byporten! We understand that every disability is different, and we have therefore implemented smart design and standards in our accessible rooms. Below you’ll find some important details regarding our breakfast, that will be handy if you are disabled or dependent on a wheelchair.

Our breakfast is served at Egon restaurant, and there is a lift available for wheelchair users and disabled guests. Please talk to the breakfast host for assistance.
