Germany’s incoming tourism hits record high

 

DUBAI – Germany’s incoming tourism figures have reached a record high for the tenth time in a row in 2019, according to data from the Federal Statistical Office.

Some 89.9 million international overnight stays in accommodation with at least ten beds were registered from January to December. This represents an additional 2.2 million international overnight stays in comparison to the previous year and an increase of 2.5 percent.

Petra Hedorfer, Chief Executive Officer of the German National Tourist Board (GNTB), said: “Despite the difficult conditions with weaker economic growth in the euro zone, uncertainty about Brexit, trade conflicts and the discussion on climate change, the success story of German incoming tourism continues. Promoting Germany as a quality tourism destination, as well as the consistent implementation of our digital strategy and the targeted selection of marketing topics, has enabled us and our partners to inspire even more travelers in 2019.”
