Abstract

This article examines chances for and obstacles to e-mobility in tourism at the cross-border region of Lake Constance, Germany. Using secondary internet research, a database of key e-mobility supply factors was generated and visualized utilizing a geographical information system. The results show that fragmentation in infrastructure and information due to the cross-border situation of the four-country region is the main obstacle for e-mobility in tourism in the Lake Constance region. Cooperation and coordination of the supply side of e-mobility in the Lake Constance region turned out to be weak. To improve the chances of e-mobility in cross-border tourism a more client-oriented approach regarding information, accessibility, and conditions of use is necessary.
