Historical Archive for Tourism

The Center for Metropolitan Studies at the Technical University in Berlin houses a unique archive on tourism. The Historisches Archiv zum Tourismus is dedicated to collecting historical materials related to travel and tourism for the purpose of promoting interdisciplinary research. It is the world’s largest archival collection of this type. Though the primary focus is on 19th- and 20th-century materials on tourism in middle Europe, there is also information on other periods and geographical areas.

Interested scholars should inquire about using the collection via e-mail and additional information can be found at the archive’s website: http://hist-soz.de/hat/archivtxt-E.html
