How did Sonthofen become the town it is today? This and other questions are addressed by the new Alpine Town Museum (AlpenStadtMuseum) in Sonthofen/D, which opened its doors at the end of January after two and a half years of construction.
Listening, putting yourself in the shoes of others and taking their needs into account: this is how citizen participation can work. This was a finding of the online event at the end of the project “Climate Action in Alpine Towns”.
With passion for the Alps...
The title "Alpine Town of the year" has become a trademark and a concept of quality for our town Sonthofen. The "we" feeling, which was created by the involvement of the population, still has an effect in many activities today.
Alpine Town of the Year association engaging on the basis of Alpine convention stands for cooperation, mutual learning and constant improvement with the aim of increasing our citizens quality of life.
The network strengthens the position of the individual cities. This enables them to make their voice heard on an international level.
