On both sides of Öresund small communities are struggling to market their visitor attractions to potential travellers. In many cases their efforts are overridden by big cities in the area. To successfully show the great potential of the Öresund region, as a place to visit, cooperation between the small actors is needed.
The project HUBS's main objective was to build a network of smaller municipalities and stakeholders to develop strategies for the sustainable tourism in smaller municipalities in the Oresund region. The project then focused on digital and social media marketing through seminars and courses for people working within tourism. During this work the municipalities decided to join forces create a common marketing concept.
Common concept on Tycho Brahe
The project developed a commen concept on Tycho Brahe. Tycho Brahe was a Danish nobleman known for his accurate and comprehensive astronomical and planetary observations. He was born in Scania, then part of Denmark, now part of modern-day Sweden, thus a commun figure for the region. The result is a walking trail and bike path that runs through the participating municipalities and binds them together through Tycho Brahe. Along the way each municipality hase created different activities, cafees and restaurants for visitors.
