An experience trail on climate change and water in the German Alps

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).

To know more on Good Practices linking tourism and ICT in mountain areas, please have a look at:

  • The Alpine Convention Report: “Sustainable tourism in the Alps, report on the State of the Alps”, published in 2012 (pages 39-40 especially), which among others, describes this ClimAlpTour Good Practice.
  • DANTE (Digital Agenda for New Tourism Approches in European Rural and Mountain areas) “Good practice guide”.

Mountains are being strongly modified by climate change. In the Alps, glaciers decreased by half b/w 1900-2012. Thus, conditions for mountaineering are deteriorating, leading to more danger & technical difficulty of routes. How are Alpine guides adapting? https://t.co/kf9gl7XAds
