Footnotes: *fvw estimate

Select the figures for German and international visitors and per year in the menu (left). By clicking on one of the countries on the interactive map, you receive the incoming figures for the years 2012 to 2017. The basis for the fvw Destination Ranking 2018 are official figures from tourist boards and our own research.

The statistics consist of two parts. The interactive map displays the worldwide tourist flows; the fvw supplement examines the trends, sub-divided into ten regional clusters. Competing destinations are presented alongside each other to show which countries lie ahead in the popularity of travellers. You can therefore optimally adapt your range of offers to market developments.
