The summer holiday month of July gave hotels, inns and guesthouses in Germany an overall increase in the number of overnight stays. According to the Federal Statistical Office on Friday, 56.3 million overnight stays by guests from Germany and abroad were 17.5 percent more than a year earlier.
In July of the current year, the number of overnight stays by guests from Germany increased by 8.4 percent to 47.0 million compared to the same month last year. The industry doubled the number of guests from abroad to 9.3 million. However, cross-border tourism in Germany is still a long way from the pre-crisis level, according to the Federal Office: the number of overnight stays by guests from abroad in July 2022 was 16.3 percent below that of July 2019.
