Germany Enjoys Visitor Increase in 2012


Figures released by the German Statistical Office demonstrate that the country saw an increase in visitor numbers during the first quarter of 2012 compared to the same period last year, and indications so far are that the trend has continued past April. April alone saw a 10% increase in visitor numbers compared to April 2011, showing that the country has a lot to draw in holidaymakers. One of the reasons behind this is thought to be that Germany’s economy has remained stable in recent years, unlike some of its neighbours, and that increases confidence in those travelling there. France, Italy and other European countries also saw an increase in travellers, and if you want to join them to discover all the best parts of the continent, including plenty of wonderful German destinations, then our luxury European river cruise is the perfect way for you to do so.
