Switzerland had generated a rise of 3.3% while Austria recorded 2.0% above the comparison values for last year. France, Belgium, Spain and Poland comprised about 4.5 to 5.7% growth that was quite strong. The Netherlands has been the most crucial market for Germany and it recorded an increase of 0.7% over the previous year while Great Britain witnessed an increase of one per cent after the Brexit vote.


The United States that is the one of the largest source markets in the world, accounted for 2.5% higher revenues for incoming tourism in Germany than 2015.


Petra Hedorfer who is the chief executive at the German National Tourist Board said that economic factors like the Brexit issue or even the fear of terrorist attacks are likely to be a dampener to the prevalent wanderlust in individual source markets.
