89.9 million tourists visited Germany in 2019

Singapore, 13 October 2020: Wego, one of the leading online travel marketplaces in the Asia Pacific and the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), collaborates with German National Tourist Board to further strengthen travel demand from Malaysia as the country starts welcoming tourists from low risk destinations.

Germany brings travelers the best of everything; there is something for every traveler to enjoy. Through this collaboration, both parties will show the finest spots of Germany to travelers in Malaysia to generate more awareness about the history of the country as well as the best things to do in this marvelous destination.

For the 10th year running, the German National Tourist Board reported record highs of tourism growth, with 89.9 million overnight stays by foreign visitors to Germany between January to December 2019 – an increase of 2.6 per cent from 2018 figures.

In 2019 Germany registered 1.78 million overnight stays by Southeast Asian travelers which is a 2.4 per cent increase from 2018. Travelers from Malaysia recorded 95,000 trips to Germany in 2019, a 5 per cent increase from 2018 numbers.

Whether nature lovers, adventurous, or people looking for a relaxing retreat, Germany has it all covered. The country is home to more than 100 national parks and nature reserves together with wonderful beaches, stunning islands in the north, serene mountains, and waterfalls as well as the famous ‘Black Forest’ in the south.

If you are a foodie and love to try new cuisines, then Germany is the best destination. Not only the country caters to foodies with an array of cuisines and options, but it also provides halal food in most of its restaurants and hotels. With the growing volume of Muslim tourists flying, the demand for halal market became greater.

Germany is also a shopper’s paradise. You will get an exceptional shopping experience and unbeatable offers from bargain finds to haute couture, cutting edge to international brands as well as the traditional and authentic styles.
