The Stadthaushotel in Hamburg is a prime example that people with disabilities can do a demanding job. The concept is working - beds are fully booked.

Welcome to Stadthaushotel in Hamburg, where the customer is king and the staff is truly special. Many of the employees in Europe's first 'integration hotel' have mental or physical disabilities. Claudia Peterson has Down syndrome and a qualified position. Without her work, the hotel would cease to run. In fact, the hotel was founded by parents of disabled children, who wanted to give their kids the possibility to live independently.
