The valley of Altmühltal is a good example of community-based destinations, where a variety of stakeholder relationships exists. These stakeholders, all with their own expectations, needs, and interests, work together in the form of a network. Based on the resources and competencies of the destination, private and public sector actors cooperate in order to develop products and services attractive to the market. Private and public actors do not perceive themselves as competitors, but rather as partners who promote joint objectives. However, they nevertheless act in a utility-oriented way and focus on their own benefits. Development and consensus are ensured through a central organization responsible for the management and governance of the destination. The interplay of the different stakeholders as well as the governance structure in this valley is characterized by mutual trust.
