With the start of Wimbledon, tennis fans will be focusing on the UK and the world’s most famous tennis tournament for two weeks of high-speed skill and world-ranking sportsmanship.
It seems the UK’s latest figures for overnight stays of visitors to Germany are also world-ranking! No faults here – it’s a clear win, thanks to a rise of +16.3% for the month of April 2013, compared with the same period in 2012. The equally impressive overall figures for 2013 January–April, make it a grand–slam: +11.2% compared to this time in 2012.
Whether your passion is for sport and outdoor living, superb food and wine, the relaxing surroundings of the German countryside or the attractions of young and vibrant youth travel in Germany’s towns and cities – UK visitors have discovered that Germany offers excellent value for money, plenty of choice and the warmest welcome; it’s a winning combination.
Klaus Lohmann, Director GNTO UK and Ireland said: “Germany has enjoyed great success at Wimbledon, thanks to players like Boris Becker and Steffi Graf -sport generally has encouraged lots of visitors from the UK to discover Germany for themselves. As these latest visitor figures show, it’s increasing in popularity year on year and we’re delighted to see that with each visit, people are finding Germany serves up plenty of reasons for a return match!”.
