Zusammenfassung

Copenhagen’s Destination Management Organisation (DMO) has recently declared the “end of tourism as we know it” (Wonderful Copenhagen, 2016). The DMO has not been using this slogan mostly for communication purposes but considered it more substantially as a presupposition on which to base a whole destination strategy. While being fully conscious that it is first and foremost a strategic claim that may deliberately exaggerate phenomena and not a scientific assertion, it remains nevertheless a strong claim that at least generates a specific discourse—“a certain way of speaking” about realities (Foucault, 1972[1969], p. 193).
