Germany sees another record year for tourism

German tourism had its eighth record year in a row in 2017, figures released by the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) on Thursday showed.

The number of overnight stays in 2017 rose by 3 per cent compared to 2016 to reach a new record of 459.6 million, Destatis said.

The number of foreign visitors in 2017 rose by 4 per cent over the year to reach 83.9 million, while domestic tourists accounted for 375.7 million overnight stays, an increase of 3 per cent.

The statistical office surveys guest houses and hotels with at least 10 beds.
