Good Practice

Path information system for sustainable tourism

Wegezentrum Bad Reichenhall

Wegezentrum Bad Reichenhall © Stadt Bad Reichenhall

As part of DYNALP itinerary centres must be created with the widest possible offer for the various user and age groups in connection with the ÖPNV. The description of the already existing and selected paths must not be limited only to the target groups of hikers, but specifically include also features for various sports fields (Nordic Walking, hiking, cycling, Mountainbiking, sky hiking and cross country). The creation of a specific path map, must be followed by the preparation of a web-based information system by means of the digital registration and characterisation of the paths.

Aims

Objective of the project is the reduction of CO2 from traffic emissions. The basis to do this is the preparation of environment information for the general public, which can also serve as marketing tool and unique selling proposition for the positioning of the city in tourism.

Realization

The paths are divided into categories and classified and data are recorded digitally graphically and geographically. This serves to draft general maps with a regional map and detailed maps focused on the relevant path centre. Besides this, these activities represent the foundation for a future web based information system.
The selected routes in the area are branded either by adding adhesive pictograms to the existing signs or, failing these, through the creation of own simple pictogram signs.

Impact

The project aims at integrating new and already existing excursions proposals in and around Bad Reichenhall, that have been developed by a number of groups concerned. Existing resources about the paths are arranged and utilised. Besides, a greater ecologic and economic effect is reached through the inclusion of the existing infrastructure.
