Berlin records 13.8mn overnight stays & 5.7mn guests in H1, 2023

In the first six months of this year, 5.7 million guests travelled to Berlin, and they spent around 13.8 million overnight stays in the city’s hotels. In comparison to the first half of 2022, the number of overnight stays saw an increase of 23.9 per cent, while the number of guests went up by 30.2 per cent.

Most international guests came from the United Kingdom. The number of overnight stays by international guests grew to 38.8 per cent in the first half of the year 2023. For the purposes of comparison: From January to June 2022, the figure stood at 36 per cent. The strongest foreign markets on the list included the United Kingdom, the USA and the Netherlands. Germany remained the most important source market with a 61.2 per cent share of overnight stays.
These latest figures from the Berlin-Brandenburg State Office for Statistics were presented by the Senator for Economic Affairs Franziska Giffey and the CEO of visitBerlin Burkhard Kieker at C/O Berlin together with Stephan Erfurt, the Chairman of the Board of the C/O Berlin Foundation.

Franziska Giffey, Senator for Economic Affairs, Energy and Public Enterprises, said, “Berlin extends a hearty invitation to its guests. With millions of guests from other German states, from Europe and abroad, tourism is a veritable economic factor for our city. Many other industries benefit when our hotels and restaurants are well visited. The current figures show that we are on the right track. The restart after the pandemic proved to be a success. Berlin’s economy holds much promise for the whole of Germany. We are now building on this development with our tourism concept and the resilience programme, which will soon be launched to further support Berlin businesses in positioning themselves for the future in a manner that is immune to crises.”

Burkhard Kieker, CEO, visitBerlin, said, “Berlin tourism has continued to hold steady in the first half of the year 2023. In view of the current global situation, this positive development is not a foregone conclusion, but the culmination of a joint effort by the entire Visitor Economy as well as the city’s politicians.”

Stephan Erfurt, Chairman of the Board of the C/O Berlin Foundation, said, “As an exhibition house for photography and visual media, C/O Berlin is all about bringing together relevant discourses of our time and our contemporary visual culture. With our unique location in Charlottenburg and the network of different partners around us, we have created a unique hub for photography that caters to both Berliners and guests from all over the world.”
