Just about everybody has a list of “must-see” places, those locations that people simply have to visit at least once in their lifetimes. The US-American Patricia Schultz compiled 1,000 of these must-see sites in the classic travel guide “1,000 Places To See Before You Die”.
Dertour has marked around 400 highlights from the bestseller with the book cover in the circular-tour section of its new summer programme for 2017 and listed them individually. A total of 20 summer catalogues include bus circular tours or car trips during which Dertour guests can experience the top sites from the book. The trips will take travellers to the widest range of countries around the world. To whet their appetites, Dertour guests will receive a copy of this extraordinary travel guide along with their trip documents.

The Swiss Travel Award was presented in this form in Zurich for the third time. Selected German and Swiss tour agencies formed the basis for the award ranking.

DER Touristik Central Europe is starting the tourism year 2016/2017 with just one management body rather than two. The objective is faster decision-making with streamlined management. To that end, DER Touristik will have one joint Management Board for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, which assumed its function on 15 November 2016. René Herzog, CEO Central Europe, emphasizes: “Our activities in the three source markets Germany, Austria and Switzerland are a perfect complement to the activities of DER Touristik Group. The market demands speed. We now have the proper leadership structure to meet that demand. We are ideally positioned with our newly organized team. I look forward to the close and purposeful cooperation with my colleagues.”
