According to a survey conducted as part of the ClimAlpTour project, tourists have a great interest in obtaining more information about climate change in the Alps. The village of Grainau in Germany has developed an experience trail informing visitors about “climate change and water” in the area.
The round trip trail consists of 9 stations dealing with different aspects of climate change and adaptation, such as flora, glaciers, protective forest, wood composition, water supply, permafrost, natural hazards and spruce living conditions. For each station, there are additional audio or video explanations which can be freely downloaded on smartphones at klimawandel-grainau.de (available only in German).
