The first project partners had their final events of the Interreg Danube GeoTour in June 2019. Every project partner has it's own final event presenting their GeoProducts and GeoInterpretation outputs.

The crossboarder UNESCO Global Geopark Karawanken-Karavanke in Austria and Slovenia had their event at the secondary school in Lavamuend, Austria with the main theme "presenting and testing the new geoproduct “Geobiking” and project results in the Karawanken-Karavanke UNESCO Global Geopark". In the frame of the final event they presented the project and achieved results, especially the new innovative geoOutdoor product “GeoBiking", which was developed by external experts Podzemlje Pece d.o.o. In the frame of the project Danube GeoTour they established different geobike tours for different target groups. Furthermore they presented to public their new leaflet with new geobike tours (guided or self-guided), which was printed in 3 different languages (DE, SLO, EN).  Visitors could test and experience a part of the Geopark Karawanken-Karavanke Geobike GrandTour accompanying by mountainbike guide and try out mountainbiking skills training.
