Abstract

The importance of an evaluation of tourism stems from the fact that it is an important factor for tourism policy in a democracy. The Swiss as well as the Tyrolean concept for tourism policy states as the prime aim of tourism and tourism policy the improvement of the quality of life of the inhabitants of the country. The inhabitants are acting as voters and therefore they are the last instance for policy decisions as long as tourism policy measures fall into the competence of the local of federal government.
