Tegernsee – Participants at the Day of Tourism at Lake Tegernsee received an extensive opportunity for networking and an insight into the various areas of tourism.
"Tourism is the leading economy in the district," said Bad Wiessee's mayor Robert Kühn and district administrator Olaf von Löwis. Together with "Tegernseer Tal Tourismus" boss (TTT) Christian Kausch, they were of the opinion that the biggest challenges facing the tourism industry lie in the shortage of skilled workers and digitization.

In keeping with the topic of digitization, Timm Jelitschek, Head of Digitization and Development, presented the current status of the "Tegernsee App". In the future, this will enable holidaymakers to digitally discover numerous tourist topics around Lake Tegernsee and book them immediately. Andreas Lackner from the Mayrhofen Tourism Association
has already provided a glimpse into the future. "Here, the "My Zillertal" app, which was implemented by the same provider, has already been actively used for four years and helps to generate sales and, in particular, to better understand guest behavior and wishes," Lackner explained.
The new car-sharing system at Lake Tegernsee "eSeeShare" was also presented on Tourism Day. Representatives of the Tegernseer Energiegesellschaft presented their partner model, with which the recently launched electric car fleet can be expanded bit by bit.
The Day of Tourism was complemented by lectures by Florian Pötsch from Munich Airport and Benedikt Brandmeier from Munich Tourism. The Employment Agency and Regional Development Oberland with its funding pilot Michael Stacheter were also represented.
"We are particularly pleased that our tourism service partners have made intensive use of our forum to exchange the diverse impulses and experiences, to ask questions and to discuss directly," said TTT CEO Kausch.
