Danube GeoTour - Successful final meeting in Bakony-Balaton UNESCO Global Geopark, Hungary


The Bakony-Balaton UNESCO Global Geopark in Hungary had the chance to welcome the Danube GeoTour project partners from 8 countries. The subtitle shows the goal and the challenge which the partners are facing: »Valorisation of geo-heritage for sustainable and innovative tourism development of Danube Geoparks« The project is co-funded by European Union funds (ERDF, IPA).

During the four days in Hungary the partners discussed the development of their GeoInterpretation sites, GeoProducts and the Danube GeoTour promotional campaign for the last period in 2019. The partners discussed also the promotion of Geoparks at the international tourism fair (ITB) in Berlin, Germany. A press conference on the second day for Hungarian media outlined the achieved activities and outputs. The press conference included the release of our innovative info stands, image brochures and image film. In addition, a field trip to Szent György-hegy renewed nature trail & Tapolca Lake Cave Visitor Centre was enjoyed by the partners. This field trip was a very good example of GeoInterpretation. The field trip day ended with a cultural evening including local music and dancing. In conclusion, every partner was satisfied concerning the successful final meeting and is looking forward to the last project period. The project team just would add many thanks to the organizers from Bakony-Balaton UNESCO Global Geopark including all their involved helpers and partners.
