Leading vacation destinations for German tourists 2016-2018 The most popular vacation destinations for German holidaymakers were the Baltic Sea, followed by Spain and Italy. These trends echo longstanding vacation traditions, though other destinations are also in the top ten and closer to home, such as Austria, the state of Bavaria or the North Sea.

Vacation time



Taking time for a vacation is considered important in Germany and surveys confirm that over a third of the population was very interested in doing so, as well as traveling in general. In terms of travel accommodation, those vacationing in Germany mainly stayed in a holiday apartment or home, though hotels were also popular. By comparison, when going on vacation abroad, the majority preferred a hotel or guesthouse.

Staycation situation



More than half of the German population wanted to go on a beach vacation or definitely spend their holidays in the sun somewhere. However, while they enjoy traveling, German holidaymakers are clearly fans of the staycation, which is also true for other European countries.
