Changing Gear Workshop

On the 25th April, the Changing Gear Workshop will take place at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Jelling in Denmark. If you want to find out how cycling tourism can benefit cultural heritage do not miss this original event. All people involved in cultural heritage site management are highly welcome to attend this free event.

Increased leisure time has led to growth in the demand for visits to cultural heritage sites. Whilst this brings important revenue to the sites through entrance fees and souvenir sales, it can create challenges for the management of the site, including how people visit the site. Almost all cultural heritage sites will have experienced the problems of having too many visitors arriving by private car, which can cause parking issues for the neighbouring area as well as potentially harming the setting of the site itself. In the frame of the ongoing EuroVelo 3 – Pilgrims Route project, co-funded by the COSME Programme of the European Union, we are organising this workshop to look at how this increased demand can be balanced with the conservation needs of the site through the promotion of cycling.

Join us to share your expertise, discuss the challenges that you have met in the past and hear ideas that will help you to tackle this important issue! You can register by sending an email to mtj@natmus.dk with the title ‘Changing Gear Workshop’.
