As per data from the German National Tourist Board, the country has seen a growth of 209 per cent in overnight stays by Indians in 2022 compared to the previous year.

The German National Tourist Office (GNTO) and German Embassy in India addressed the press to showcase Germany as a must-visit destination.  pIn 2022, Indians spend a total of 623,363 nights in Germany (2021: 201,194). The record level of 2019 with 961,656 has not yet been reached. “However we have already reached 65 per cent of the level of 2019, leaving room for continuous growth as Indians return to travelling. There is huge demand among Indians for international travel,” said Romit Theophilus, Director – India, German National Tourist Office.

“Germany is an attractive destination with exceptional offers. Our goal in the medium term is to reach the number of overnight stays we had before the Covid-19 pandemic. We have achieved a remarkable increase this year compared to 2021, which shows that our diverse campaigns and offers are attractive and appeal to Indians.

“We know that Germany appeals strongly to Indians that are interested in culture and history, city breaks and culinary experiences. Sustainability is a key focus of Germany’s tourism industry, and we’re confident that the country’s natural beauty, innovative eco-tourism practices, and rich cultural heritage will resonate with Indian travellers seeking responsible travel options.
