Berlin hosts the world
Facts and figures
Berlin is the most popular city break destination in Germany and a top European destination. The German capital is currently holding its own excellently against international competition: In May of this year, Berlin as a destination already recorded an average hotel occupancy rate of 77 percent. On a par with New York, the German capital is thus in third place in the international ranking of cities with the best restart - a noticeable recovery of Berlin tourism.
Between 2015 and 2019, Berlin was in the league of metropolises with over 30 million overnight stays in hotels and guest houses. This secured Berlin third place in Europe after London and Paris, also in 2020 and 2021 despite a pandemic-related drop in visitors. Through our comprehensive marketing activities, we ensure that Berlin remains one of the top city break destinations.
