In terms of tourism, the Dunkelsteinerwald is overshadowed by the Wachau. However, in recent years, it has been possible to position the Dunkelsteinerwald as a hiking destination with the hiking trail network of the Dunkelsteinerwald-Runde.

Situated between the towns of Krems, Melk and St. Pölten, hiking in the Dunkelsteinerwald is accorded a local recreational function. Last but not least, synergies with the World Heritage Trail Wachau and the Jauerling-Runde can be used. Despite digital resources, the classic hiking map continues to be accorded great importance amongst hikers, which is why the provision of an updated map for the hiking region of the Dunkelsteinerwald is essential.

In collaboration with the municipalities of the Dunkelsteinerwald, the infrastructure symbols have been brought right up to date and produced in a print run of 30,000 copies. These will subsequently be distributed to regional business and tourist facilities, and offer both guests and locals information about the hiking offer in the Dunkelsteinerwald.
