Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), which is one of Germany’s leading daily newspapers, has made a publication on Turkey where it highlighted valuable touristic, historical and cultural highlights in the country. The publication, organized by Hamburg-based international content management agency UCOM Global, stressed the fact that Turkey is a tourism paradise and invited Germans to see the country.
The 16-page publication includes an interview with Dietmar Gunz, the CEO of FTI, which is one of the largest tour operators in Germany, bringing the largest number of German tourists to Turkey. Gunz praised the Turkish tourism sector and stressed that they would continue to invest in Turkey.
Gunz said that the number of foreign tourists visiting Turkey will continue to increase every year, and that Turkish cuisine, golf and sports tourism, spa quality and holiday opportunities throughout the year are the major reason for this rise in tourist numbers. To quote Gunz, “New destinations in Turkey will support this growth. Turkey is a safe country with very few visa and travel restrictions. We are all over Turkey with our team of 3,000 people. We will continue to invest and increase our investments in Turkey this year as well.”
The publication features Turkey’s touristic, historical and cultural highlights like special spots in Istanbul, Odunpazarı in Eskişehir, one of the most prominent cities in Anatolia, Atakule in Ankara, which comes to the forefront with health tourism, the turquoise waters of Marmaris, Fethiye and Bodrum, along with great holiday opportunities in Antalya, a favorite tourism sport for Germans.
Last year, 4.5 million German tourists visited Turkey and Germans ranked second after Russians with regard to visitors to the country. Turkey’s largest metropolis Istanbul and tourism capital Antalya were the most visited provinces.
