Spectacular building structure, which will become a popular excursion destination. Holzgau and the Lechtal valley will get plenty of media interest and more popular as a consequence. The number of guests and overnights should be increased.
1. hikers on the 125km-long Lechweg route
2. new holiday makers, which want to spend their holidays in the Lechtal
3. one-day excursionists and persons booking short breaks from the neighbouring Bavaria, Vorarlberg and also from the North and South Tirol.
