German Tourism Office: Germany is safe and waiting for tourists – TOURISM New

The German Tourism Office ensures that, despite the catastrophic floods that hit several regions, Germany remains a safe and attractive destination.

The German Tourism Office (DZT), which is responsible for promoting Germany in terms of tourism in foreign markets, reports in a press release that authorities and entrepreneurs operating in the federal states hit by the recent floods “are working tirelessly to be able to welcome their visitors again soon.”

DZT suggests that foreign tourists, meanwhile, may go to other regions for a “relaxing vacation”. It encourages, among other things, to be active in the open air and to see places and objects inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List a few days ago.

Below we publish the announcement of the DZT in its entirety.

You have probably been following the dramatic flood news in the various regions of Germany.

Several regions were hit by heavy rainfall and subsequent floods, including some places of great tourist interest such as Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler and Bad Münstereifel.

A huge wave of aid continues to support individuals and businesses in flooded areas. In close cooperation with the federal government, the federal states and tourism entrepreneurs, the hosts of the individual holiday resorts are working tirelessly to be able to welcome their guests again soon.

Until then, foreign tourists have many other options to organize a relaxing holiday in the German holiday regions.

Magnificent natural landscapes await holidaymakers. Both coasts, the highland regions and the Alps offer a wide variety of outdoor activities. Both metropolises and smaller urban centers offer a summer atmosphere and a wide variety of cultural tourism programs.

In all federal states, popular destinations such as zoos, castles and museums are mostly open to the public. The hotels, guesthouses, holiday apartments and restaurants warmly welcome their guests. Only a few campsites are still closed.

Germany has an excellent image in terms of security. IPK International has just confirmed: foreign travelers estimate that the risk of coronavirus infection in Germany is the lowest. Travel companies all over Germany have developed comprehensive concepts for hygiene and non-contact check-in at the accommodation. The tourism industry has many other means at its disposal to ensure its guests a carefree vacation time.

There is one more actual reason to recommend Germany as a travel destination: from now on, more tourist attractions in Germany are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Mathildenhöhe art colony in Darmstadt made it to the famous list. Baden-Baden, Bad Ems and Bad Kissingen were dubbed the “Great Baths of Europe” by the World Heritage Commission, along with eight other such European locations. Mainz, Worms and Speyer have been honored with the title of World Heritage as the cradle of European Jewish heritage. Finally, the Lower German Limes, which marked the “Borders of the Roman Empire”, also became part of the world heritage. This 400 km stretch of ancient border fortifications with forts and legionnaire camps runs along the Rhine from Rheinbrohl in Rhineland-Palatinate through North Rhine-Westphalia to the Dutch North Sea coast.

We are counting on cooperation with you and the successful return of inbound tourism to Germany.

Germany awaits You!
Germany is waiting for you!
