Visitor forecast and study of potential regional economic impacts Gondola Schierke
Client: Bürger GmbH | Year: 2015 (ongoing)
After more than 15 years of planning the project of connecting the resort of Schierke located in the eastern Harz mountains to the Wurmberg, the largest ski area in the western Harz is now about to be implemented. A group of investors is to invest some 20 million Euros for the construction of a 10 passenger gondola from Schierke to the Winterberg mountain. Moreover the town of Wernigerode will invest 11 million Euros for necessary infrastructure. Because of the location of the project area in or on the Harz National Park and due to uncertain financing, this project was repeatedly delayed, although there was no doubt about the importance of the project for the development of the tourism industry in the region. How important the implementation would be has been analyzed in a study of the potential regional economic impacts carried out by Montenius Consult. The basis for the calculation of these effects was a forecast of the expected number of visitors and revenues both in winter and summer, also performed by Montenius Consult. The report issued on behalf of the investors supported the approval and financing process. Moreover Montenius Consult prepared a business plan including income statement, cash flow analysis and liquidity account. Currently, a feasibility study for the planned additional summer attractions is being worked on.
