Tourist go Home
Tourist go Home Europe’s dream Destination at Risk
A film by Antje Christ, ZDF/ARTE 2016, 52 mins.
In Europe, city tourism is booming like never before, generating billions in revenue for local authorities. However, many cities cannot cope with the onslaught: traffic chaos, mountains of rubbish, holiday apartments instead of homes. There is no end in sight for the travel boom. Quite the opposite, in fact: thanks to the low cost of travel and a boom in the cruises sector, visitor figures are set to rise relentlessly. Can Europe’s most popular destinations be saved from collapse?
