  • Workshop on „Instagram-Hype in protected areas“

    Tue 15.10., 10 am – 3 pm „Instagram-Hype in protected areas“
    The influence of Social Media on the visitor behaviour, consequences for nature, recommendations and best-practice for interventions

    Many protected areas report an increase in visitor numbers, often triggered by publications on platforms like Instagram. In the National Park Berchtesgaden one of the main „Insta-hotspots“ is the Königsbach waterfall. More and more people, mainly youngsters, come to see the waterfall, take a bath and share their experiences and pictures on Social Media. New trails, large soil erosion or remaining campfire spots are collateral consequences. In April 2019, two young men died in the strong current.
