End of project, start of new website

The web platform, TastesofAbbeys.com, is released on the 9th of June and is the main achievement of the EU-funded project ‘TATRA - Tastes of Trappists: a slow tourism experience’, realised by a consortium of seven partners in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany and Italy. This project comes to an end in June 2015.

This project encourages visitors to undertake a transnational, slow-tourism experience in the regions around the Trappist abbeys. The aim of the newly created web platform is to promote the hiking and cycling routes available, providing interactive maps of the routes, highlighting the points of interest for individual travellers and suggesting different types of holiday packages.
