Berchtesgaden and Triglav National Parks intensify cooperation

Thursday, 14 March 2024

During the International Tourism Fair (Internationale Tourismusbörse, ITB) in Berlin, the directors of the Berchtesgaden/Germany and Triglav/Slovenia national parks recently signed a declaration of intent to intensify cross-border cooperation at the Slovenian celebratory evening.


Both regions are very comparable in terms of their natural resources and current challenges. Just like the Berchtesgaden National Park, a biosphere region directly adjoins the Triglav national park, and the Slovenian national park municipality of Bohinj has been Ramsau's partner municipality for around 25 years. Dr Roland Baier (right) and the Slovenian National Park Director Dr Tit Potočnik (left) therefore intend to work closely together and exchange knowledge, initially in the areas of research, education, information and visitor guidance. Joint projects, training and further education are also planned.


The teams from both protected areas are currently working on the detailed content and objectives of the new cooperation. The official agreement will be signed in June 2024 at a ceremony in Bohinj, Slovenia.
