Worth a detour? About cultural tourism | Volante Research - A wiser & more fun world | place identity | Scoop.it

There are three common mistakes regarding cultural tourism.

The first mistake is to underestimate it. People working in the cultural sector seldom get the recognition they deserve relative to how much they contribute to the economic effects of tourism, as well as the attractiveness and symbolic values for a city or town.

 

The second mistake relates to the first mistake, but the other way around. From the cultural perspective, the overall experience of the visitor is often overlooked. For instance visitors are looking for more from the experience than “just” the art. There are very few cultural institutions that in themselves are the sole reason why larger number of tourists make a journey. For example, the world famous art museum Louisiana outside Copenhagen would not be as popular if it wasn’t for the scenic milieu in which it is located.
