This research-project deals with the relationships between the infrastructure and tourist behaviour and their impacts on the usage of the landscape. This interdisciplinary research question is typical for the current research practice in the regional and transport sciences. The investigations comprise desk work as well as field studies. The following points are addressed and should be answered by this project:

The present situation as well as the developments and the changes since 1950 will be investigated. While we will study the large scale issues using national data, the local questions will be addressed using a small sample of typical tourism locations (case studies).
