ibiza – where else german ppl spend their summer?

Germans (and Brits) are more likely to go to Mallorca, while Italians (and French) are more likely to go to Ibiza. Statistically, though, Spain is not quite as popular with German tourists anymore as it used to be in past decades as so many people have now already been there repeatedly.

In 2015, 71% of Germans tourists went abroad for their vacation and Spain still was the #1 foreign destination (after Bavaria and the Baltic Sea coast as 29% of people stayed in Germany) — in Spain, the popukar destinations still are mostly the Balearics (Mallorca) and the Canary Islands (Tenerife, Fuerteventura).

#2 international destination in 2015 was Italy, mostly Rome, Tuscany, Umbria, and Latium.

The Turkish Riviera was #3, internationally,

Austria #4, followed by Croatia at #5.

Greece #6 with mostly Crete and Corfu at #7.

France #8, and Poland #9.

Safari in Africa, bear-watching in Canada, exploring the South American rainforest or visiting the Great Wall of China – about 0% of Germans travel to faraway destinations. Of course, not all Germans can afford such travel: it’s about two-and-half times as expensive as a vacation in Germany.
