Tourism Report: “Tourism in Berlin: How much tourism can the growing city tolerate?”
Berlin is one of the top 3 travel destinations in Europe and tourism is an important part of Berlin’s economy. However, many Berliners are increasingly critical of the ongoing tourism boom. Growing numbers of visitors in inner-city residential areas pose new challenges for the city: Conflicts of use over urban spaces and resources, higher traffic volumes and increasing levels of waste and noise arise.
We transcribe and evaluate our Trialoge® from a social science point of view. The result is published here in the detailed report “Tourism in Berlin: How much tourism can the growing city tolerate?” It contains arguments and their reasons for all Trialog® participants and relates them to each other. In the long term, the interfaces between science and urban society serve as reference points for initiating transdisciplinary projects in the city.
Our final Trialog® “Tourism in Berlin: How much tourism can the growing city tolerate?” As part of the New Urban Agenda Berlin project dealt with the question of how the steadily growing tourism in Berlin could be designed and used in a sustainable, economically efficient and, at the same time, city-friendly manner. Over 80 participants from science, politics and administration, business and civil society discussed urgent challenges and options for action on March 14, 2019.
