Regional Baukultur and Tourism
Project of the research programme "ExWoSt"
Baukultur and tourism are far too rarely handled and linked together. Especially in Germany’s rural regions, qualitative planning and constructing is often not recognised as tourism potential. There are numerous good reasons to change this. For starters, vibrant tourism can enhance the quality of life as well as the regional identity of rural areas while also maintaining the economic value in the regions. In the ExWoSt research field "Baukultur and Tourism - Cooperation in the Region" seven pilot schemes have examined how the cooperation between Baukultur and tourism in rural areas can be strengthened and which tools are useful.
