Abstract The Alps are an important tourist region of Europe since they provide various leisure opportunities. Because they offer numerous types of recreation and also have a rich cultural and natural heritage, many tourists choose the Alps as a holiday destination. The population of the Alps became involved in tourism very early on. At first it complemented other economic branches but gradually it developed to the extent that it became indispensable and the most important economic sector for many Alpine areas. However, there are differences between individual parts of the Alps that can be seen in the indicator for the number of tourist beds per resident. This reflects the importance of tourism for an area’s economy as well as showing the most highly developed Alpine tourist areas.
