Transdanube.Pearls Transdanube.Pearls - Network for Sustainable Mobility along the Danube

The Danube region is one of the most promising tourism destinations in Europe. Most of the trips to and within the Danube region are carried out by car, causing negative impacts to the environment and the inhabitants. The project Transdanube.Pearls aims at addressing these challenges by developing socially fair, economically viable, environmentally friendly and health promoting mobility services for the visitors of the Danube region.

Project Goals:

The central element of the project is the establishment of a network of destinations (“Transdanube.Pearls”) committed to sustainable mobility for tourists and inhabitants along the Danube which will support cooperation between different stakeholders from the transport and the tourism sector. This network will increase the visibility of the participating destinations offering their visitors the unique possibility to travel the Danube with sustainable means of transport. The network of destinations aims at:

  • Offering visitors the possibility to reach the Pearls without private car by better combining existing mobility services
  • Allowing visitors to travel the Pearl with new and improved sustainable means of transport developed and tested in the project
  • Providing the visitors with a sustainable option to travel to the next Pearl (or home)
  • Providing user-friendly and easy accessible information on existing sustainable mobility services and tourism offers 
  • Empowering local and regional stakeholders to bring forward the concept of sustainable mobility in tourism beyond project lifetime

Further Project Outputs:

  • Development of integrated sustainable mobility services and improvement of possibilities to travel along the Danube with different means of transportation (e.g. train, bus, bike, ship), especially on the last mile
  • Trainings for local and regional stakeholders provide the opportunity to develop further sustainable mobility services
  • Provision of user-friendly and easy accessible information on existing travel and sustainable mobility services through the development of transnational web platforms and the establishment of regional mobility centers along the Danube as “one-stop-shops”
  • Provision of attractive travel packages for visitors travelling along the Danube
