Status EuroVelo in Austria


Challenges :
Partly differing EV13 routes in bikeline (Cramer) and in reality signposted
At present no EuroVelo-Routen-overview for Austria ( www.eurovelo.at !)

linking to various regional or provincial-websites not user-friendly


www.radtouren.at no reference to EuroVelo sections...
Hardly any detail- Info on ANTO (Austrian National Tourism Org.)
http://www.austria.info/de/tags/radfahren website
-> future link to www.eurovelo.at ?!
Still no signposting of EuroVelos in upper AUT .. (Nr. 6, 7 and 13 !)
Setting up of new structure as a NECC (including a board of contributing stakeholders) so
far NO financial contributions of ministry or tourism organisations
Financing of running costs of NECC e.g. tour operators, publishing houses etc.
