Creating a trans-regional Competence Centre as a shared platform for tourism promotion in the Danube region
The Danube, the second-longest river in Europe, winds its way through ten countries between the Black Forest and Black Sea, linking up myriad cultural and economic regions. While tourism is well developed in the upper reaches from Germany through Austria and Slovakia down to Hungary, the countries in the central and lower Danube region are still very much on the sidelines of the international travel and tourism business. Although the region has a lot to offer in terms of its pristine natural beauty and cultural heritage, it still lacks internationally marketable tourism products.
