Germany welcomed about 199.2 million tourists between January and June. The number of domestic and foreign visitors both grew by 3 percent to 163.7 million and 35.5 million respectively.

The number of overnight stays in June, however, dropped by 1 percent, compared with last June, mainly due to the loss of foreign guests.

Only establishments with an accommodation capacity of at least 10 visitors were considered for these statistics.
