The publication illustrates the economic potential of an national park for the relevant region. Extensive visitor surveys carried out in and arround the Swiss National Park in the summer of 1998 revealed that national park tourists booking accomodation in this region of 16 communities generated demand to the value of SFr 20.6 million. National park tourism contributes about one quater of the total estimated value added of the region's summer tourism. This means that the National Park can be considered to be a major attraction for summer tourism . However, the survey also revealed that visitors to the National Park region appreciate the variety of activities offered, indicating that a national park on its own would likely be insufficient to promote a region's tourism or economy.
