Coastal and maritime tourism in Denmark accounts for 37% of total tourism revenue. This document seeks to investigate the importance of coastal and maritime tourism in Denmark, while meeting the requirements from the EU Commission. The analysis of coastal and maritime tourism is challenging at a national level due to the lack of available data within this area. To face these challenges, the Danish Coastal Tourism Model (DCTM) has been established. DCTM is an input-output model, which uses quantitative economic methods to demonstrate the relationship between coastal and maritime activities, employment and sectors at municipal as well as at national level.
