INSiGHTS INtegrated Slow, Green and Healthy Tourism Strategies



Danube Regions have outstanding natural and cultural resources in need to be protected. At the same time, they have a great potential to become attractive destinations for the fast growing trend of slow, green and healthy tourism

To find solutions on how to make regions more attractive to tourists 13 partners from Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Germany, Hungary, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia have joined forces in the INSiGHTS project – Integrated Slow, Green and Healthy Tourism Strategies co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance.

Partners will be working in close cooperation with stakeholders in 8 regions to gain relevant local feedback on the current situation of tourism and also ideas and proposals for new opportunities for slow, green and healthy tourism. There will be 8 integrated sustainable tourism strategies developed by the partner regions and they will be adaptable all across the Danube Region.
