The project ACCESS2MOUNTAIN aimed to achieve durable, environmentally friendly tourism, as well as to ensure accessibility and connection to, between and in sensitive regions of the Alps and the Carpathians. It wanted to benefit all (potential) users. With the long-term perspective of increasing sustainable tourist mobility, railway and multimodal connections have been improved and attractive offers created via pre-investment measures, pilot activities, and investments.

It has been central to the project, to transfer experiences made and knowledge gained in the Alps to the Southeastern European region. In this regard, the transnational cooperation in the field of sustainable regional development played an important role. Touristic infrastructures had to be created or improved in a sustainable manner. This paved the way for achieving international environment aims and yielded competitive advantages.
