2014 was another bumper year for camping in Germany and Europe

Date: 12/06/2015

The number of overnight stays in the tourism sector in Germany reached a record level of 28 million. Bavaria still tops the list for camping. Almost 15% of campers come from abroad, half of whom live in the Netherlands, Switzerland and Denmark.
To this one can add 70 million overnight stays on permanent pitches in Germany, a possibility that one does not find in most other European countries.
Germany is enormously important as far as European camping tourism is concerned. German campers account for 27 million overnight stays elsewhere in Europe. Thus Germany still provides the biggest pool of campers in nearly all European countries, ahead of the Netherlands, Great Britain and Denmark.
