As per the data released recently, Bavarian tourism has attracted record number of tourists for the fifth year at a stretch. To quote Ilse Aigner, Economics Minister, ‘’ Never have so many people visited Bavaria. Never have there been so many overnight stays. Thus, 2016 is the most successful tourism year for the free state ever.”
In 2016, 35.4 million tourists visited Bavaria with an increase of 3.5 percent with overnight stay growing almost 3 percent to 90.8 million. The health resort of Bavaria also played an instrumental role with 200 million investments in spas, facilities, hiking trails and cycling in bygone years. Various spa and health resorts showed a record registration of 23.5 million overnight stays last year.
To quote, Klaus Holetschek, chairman of the Bavarian Association of Therapists, ‘’ Among the top 12 destinations in Bavaria there are eight spas and health resorts.’’ Foreign tourists are yet another factor that helped influencing Bavarian tourism a lot. In 2007, Bavaria reported about six million overseas arrivals. In 2016, almost ten years later, 8.5 million foreign visitors were registered in Bavaria.
