New travel guide “Webshop” launched by German National Tourist Office

The German National Tourist Office (GNTO) has launched a new “Webshop” service on its website, for consumers wishing to receive travel brochures and information by post - just as the latest statistics for Jan-Dec 2012 show a healthy 5.7% rise in the number of UK visitors to Germany on the previous year.

The new Webshop is in addition to the online publications available from the GNTO website and offers consumers the choice of receiving their information by post instead of viewing it online.  No charge is made for the brochures or the cost of postage for brochures ordered through

Subjects reflect the most popular types of holidays for UK travellers. They include ‘Vibrant Towns and Cities’, ‘Campsites and Motorhome Sites in Germany’, ‘Activity Holidays’ for the more sporty inclined and ‘Discover the Taste of Germany’ for the more foody-minded traveller in pursuit of the finest food and wine Germany can offer.  Germany’s new cultural magazine ‘TravelLog’ which comes out twice a year is also available and more brochures will be added over the coming months as the latest updates are published.

Klaus Lohmann, GNTO director UK and Ireland said: ‘Interest in travel to Germany is increasing all the time. Our latest figures for January-December 2012 show there was a rise of 5.7% in travellers from the UK to Germany in the last year – an unprecedented amount.  This new facility will clearly be welcome and should help to meet the demand for information about where to go and what to see in Germany. The choice is almost endless!”
