One of the most important aspects of managing protected areas is a proper organisation of tourist movement that will reconcile the needs of protecting nature with the interests of tourists and permanent inhabitants of a region. This issue was presented in the article on the example of the Landscape Park Zittauer Gebirge, located in southeast Germany. Tourist movement distribution centres were indicated, the role of tourist trails and public transport in shaping the directions of tourist movement was analysed, as well as the integration of this Park – located near the state border –with the Czech Republic was pointed out. The studied area is well-developed in terms of tourist infrastructure and a crucial role in the organisation of tourist movement plays the exceptionally complex network of hiking trails. However, the offer of public transport does not fully caters the needs of tourists, what is quite problematic taking into account considerably big passenger car traffic and deficiency of parking places.
