About the network Danube.Pearls

This network of Danube.Pearls offers mobility and tourism services for visitors and tourists and unique possibilities to travel and explore destinations along the Danube without using private car. Moreover, it serves as common platform the destinations along the Danube in order to set up joint marketing activities and thereby, increase the visibility of the Danube.Pearls. Furthermore, members will jointly elaborate services for travelling sustainably from the Black Forest to the Black Sea and inform visitors and citizens about the variety of sustainable travel options by taking the bus, train, bicycle or envrionmentally friendly ships. Thereby, visitors of the Danube region will be able to travel sustainably not only to and within a destination but also from one Danube.Pearl to the other. 

By establishing the network, the further implementation and development of achieved results and cooperation will be guaranteed beyond project duration of Transdanube.Pearls. Further information about the event is available here.
