Attitudes of visitors to recreational facilities in woodlands

Attitudes of visitors to recreational facilities in woodlands

Schriftenreihe der Bundesanstalt fur Landwirtschaft: 34(42)

The study investigated the activities of visitors to various types of woodland and forest areas in Austria, the use they made of existing recreational facilities and their opinions on possible future recreational developments in woodland areas. The types of area investigated included those in or near towns which were easily accessible by city transport, those up to 100 km away likely to be the object of weekend outings, and still more remote forests which were major holiday areas.
