Apps to regulate maximum numbers of visits at tourist destinations


To all german speaking people, here an interesting Interview about over-tourism in nature destinations and possible solutions:


Wow, that's cool, or better: quite impressive, thanks a lot, Nico!

I just listened to the interview and I have to say that it is definitely very interesting and relevant.But I think that we are still further away from a really functioning solution than maybe one to three years... the comparison at the end, with the traffic jam warnings and traffic trackers - well, when I think about it, especially in Vienna, it's rather wrong for me and I'm unexpectedly in a traffic jam or I get through easier than indicated and I'm too early at the appointment. So there is also a lot of potential for optimization. And when I think about myself, for example when I go hiking, I ask myself what happens when I'm on the road without my cell phone and the WIFI tracker can't see me. Or what if I don't look for routes on the same day of my hike, but days before and thus can't see that it's busy?And what if I don't trust the technology and still follow the potential crowds trails because maybe I don't want to go into being monitored. To what extent is the guest prepared to bow to this control? definitely an exciting topic that will certainly become more important in the future, also in order to protect the environment and to control the masses, but I think that we are rather far away from a good, functioning solution...
