For the first time, almost as many tourists have stayed overnight in Bavaria as before the Corona pandemic.
According to a statement from the State Office for Statistics, the 11,566 open accommodation establishments recorded almost 4.5 million guest arrivals and almost 11.5 million overnight stays in July. That would almost correspond to the number of tourists in Bavaria in July 2019.
From abroad, for the first time since the pandemic, more than one million tourists were counted within one month, as the statisticians announced.
Youth hostels and mountain huts were particularly in demand in July. Here came 75.8 percent more guests than in July last year.
A total of 18.1 million guest arrivals and almost 49.3 million overnight stays have been registered in Bavaria so far this year. This is reportedly an increase of 147.7 percent in guest arrivals and 103.6 percent in overnight stays compared to the same period last year.
