Limes Tourism Connection

“Developing the frontiers of the Roman Empire as a transnational European sustainable tourism product.”
Roman Watchtower, The Netherlands The Limes has the potential to be the largest, most compelling visitor destination in Europe. It is an interlinked chain of world class attractions that tells a unique story from history. Previous and present EU cooperation around the Limes focuses on the scientific and policy domain. At this moment, international cooperation on tourism is still modest. Tourism initiatives are regional, to some extent connected at national levels, but there is no coordinated and structural international cooperation. The project “Limes Tourism connection” aims to catalyze the international networking process around the Limes heritage, to connect relevant national and regional stakeholders, cultural resource managers and the tourism sector, professional and voluntary initiatives, in order to develop the Limes into a transnational sustainable tourism product.
