Our Sport section celebrates the mutual importance of sport and travel industries. It highlights several aspects of this multifaceted relationship. We publish results of the survey commissioned by the German National board to examine long-term effects of the recent football championship on the country promotion as a travel destination.
This research is especially interesting in connection with the approaching 2012 Olympic Games. Our publication observes opportunities for thousands of companies, that directly or indirectly, might be involved in and benefit from delivering and staging the Games.
Big achievements, as we all know, start with a general interest in sports and an active lifestyle, meaning active tourism at the same time. Here we present kids football holiday camps located in sunny Andalusia, where children can play football year round. While the skiing season is coming to Europe we introduce a new destination: Poland, where the Tatras, the youngest range in the Carpathian Mountains, together with the growing national travel industry provides excellent opportunities for cross-country skiing, recreational skiing, or downhill racing.
