The Historical Archive on Tourism (HAT, Historisches Archiv zum Tourismus) is sited in the city of Berlinmarker at the Freie Universität Berlinmarker, housed at the Willy-Scharnow-Institut für Tourismus. The HAT had been founded in 1989; today the length of the shelves amounts to some 400 running meter. The focus of the material is not on “travel” generally but on “tourism” as a special sort of travelling. The HAT is probably the biggest archive in this field, gathering various materials ranging from Baedekers to private photo albums, in particular there is an extensive collection of flyers and other so-called ephemera. Mainly the material stems from Central Europe, in particular from Germany, but nearly all other parts of the world are also represented, e.g. Southern Africa or USA. Some 200 journals and 9000 books are registered. In addition statistics, posters and maps are gathered. The bulk of the material is from the 19th and 20th century, some books date back to around 1600. No OPAC is installed but short lists are published in the Internet.
