The tourist infrastructure of the municipality Spitz at the Danube is very small in scale. Combined with demographic trends, the tourist offering has for some time now been experiencing stagnation and to some extent even decline. The project aims at producing a strategy and possible measures for future development.

Spitz at the Danube is one of the most visited municipalities of the Wachau World Heritage Site. Any stagnation or decline of the tourist offering is strongly linked to tourist demand. It is therefore important to reverse this trend as well as to maintain and improve the existing offer.

The stagnation of many tourism and accommodation providers is already evident, particularly given the small scale of the place and the demographic trend. Those in charge of the municipality and tourism would like to develop a strategy together with existing establishments. Areas of action and optimisation for boosting the offer should be highlighted. Specific measures should subsequently be elaborated and implementation packages created.
