NHTV CSTT presentation at expert meeting on German cycle route in Potsdam, Germany

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

In Werder (Havel), near Potsdam, politicians and representatives from local governments, tourism marketing organisations and tourism companies met for the third time to discuss the development of the D-Route 3 (29-30 April 2010). The development of this cycle route is the pilot project for Germany’s D-Route Network, a national cycle route network of 12 high-quality, standardised long-distance cycle routes that touch all federal states. D-Route 3 starts at the Dutch-German border and runs from East to West through Berlin, to end at the German-Polish border. It follows largely the same route as Euroroute R1 and EuroVelo 2.

Eke Eijgelaar of NHTV CSTT gave a presentation (in German) on the potential of D-Route 3 from the perspective of the EuroVelo study, including an estimate of future cyclist volumes and expenditure. The meeting was organised by the pilot project’s main supporters, the German Tourism Association (DTV), the Federal Ministry for Transport, Building and Urban Affairs (BMVBS), and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi).
