    Description

    The Danube Floodplains National Park, Vienna, Austria is used predominantly by the Viennese population for daily recreation purposes. Different methods were applied for the monitoring of visitor activities in the National Park (long-term video monitoring, short-term visitor observation, interviews and route registration). The results show that only a combination of monitoring and survey data obtained by various methods allows a thorough analysis of visitor activities as a basis for the ecologically and economically sustainable management of recreation and conservation areas.
