Summary/Abstract: In this study we will focus on the issue of tourism in the former GDR. We will observe the legal anchoring of tourism, where we must state, that we cannot only observe in the legal anchoring, but also in the realization, the tradition of organized tourism since the days of Nazism, which also became the inspiration for this socialist state. We will show that the law has only limited this area partially, but this is similar to other parts of the Communist bloc. We will also focus on the administrative aspects of the operation of tourism, specifically on the institutional security of the tourism industry in the GDR. Also, statistics on GDR tourism and geographic assumptions will be outlined.The study will present both the basic statistical data on tourism in the GDR, as well as the geographical prerequisites for the development of tourism. A separate chapter will cover the legal anchoring of tourism and the interpretation of organizations operating in the tourism industry.
