With its beautiful mountains it is not only a great destination in the winter for a skiing adventure. Ramsau is also a special place to visit in the summer, which makes it one of the leading tourism municipality in austria. Because of that, everything that makes a visit even more precious is extremely important for the region and its economic growth. To take care of this development, Ramsau chose to make the place even more attractive and modernize and expand the local public swimming pool. To make this change happen, they chose the modern way of financing.

After all the new swimming pool should not only be a great experience, but also have an energy-efficient technology to take care of our environment. To make sure everyone who wants to support the region gets the chance to be involved in the project, they chose the modern way of fincancing and started a crowdfunding campaign.
