Profile
The Wörthersee Rundwanderweg is a circular trail in stages that rounds the largest lake in Carinthia, Lake Wörthersee, in four daily stages. The circular hiking trail was developed by the regional destination management, Wörthersee Tourismus GmbH, with the aim of positioning the destination also as a hiking region. The Wörthersee circular hiking trail plays the role of the regional flagship product, charged with several seasonally staggered hiking events. As a result, the Trail Angels were commissioned by Wörthersee Tourismus GmbH to further develop the existing circular hiking trail: In the form of an individual, serviced bookability, additionally with dynamic packaging and with the establishment of a Trail Info & Booking Center in the premises of the Trail Angels in Obervellach. For a clearer positioning of the circular hiking trail, the storyboard was also revised and prepared in the form of the claim “Hiking in the Light of the South” for the marketing of the tourism region. During product development, efforts were and are being made to use dynamic packaging to link the circular hiking trail more closely with the regional positioning as a “lifestyle highlight in the south of Austria”.
