CHESTNUT - Project Transdanube.Pearls: Travelling 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.

In the project Transdanube.Pearls, a team travelled the 2.860 km long route along the Danube by using only sustainable means of transport such as busses, trains, ships and bikes. They encompassed 9 countries and visited more than 15 regions and cities in 22 days – always with sustainable means of transport.

The videos show the beautiful regions along the Danube - from the source of the river in Donaueschingen, to the mouth in the Danube Delta where the Danube enters the Black Sea.

Programme co-funded by European Union funds (ERDF, IPA, ENI)
