Planned travel destination of Germans 2020

Most Germans planned to travel in their homeland, as of the time of this survey. Otherwise leading travel destination choices were also Spain, Italy and Asia– all countries with a warmer climate and more sunshine.


Holders of a German passport have an impressive amount of visa-free travel options, with 188 countries open to travelers. For city breaks in Germany, the most popular destinations were the national capital, Berlin, followed by Munich and Hamburg. Generally a larger share of the German population traveling for personal purposes completed outbound journeys, though an increasing share also had both domestic and outbound trips on their travel agenda.

To the beach

The number of people in Germany interested in vacation and travel as such has been growing in recent years. This is also true for those who prefer a beach holiday or a trip to a sunny destination as a vacation trip.
