Development of a bookable leading product for long-distance hiking in Burgenland
Projekt partner

Burgenland Tourismus GmbH

The tourism board of Burgenland, Burgenland Tourismus GmbH, has entrusted Trail Angels with the development of a hiking product as a long-distance hiking trail. The goal of the project is both to position Burgenland as a hiking destination and to be able to introduce a bookable leading product on the market. The project included the following modules: Development of the storyboard and a branding; exact route planning incl. coordination and declaration of approval of the landowners and trail owners; a signposting concept ready for implementation; product development and integration up to the status “Ready for Booking” for an individually bookable and serviced long-distance hiking trail incl. dynamic packaging; development of an efficient partner network (accommodation providers, mobility service providers, etc.) incl. contracting on site and the establishment of a Trail Info and Booking Center in the premises of Trail Angels in Obervellach. To be able to work through this large work package, the client (Burgenland Tourism) & contractor (Trail Angels) were supported in an outstanding manner by all involved tourism boards during workshops. This also applies to those responsible in Hungary, since the Bernstein Trail also leads across Hungarian territory on several stages.
