The trend has continued into 2016, with visitors from the UK rising 10.2% year-on-year in January alone, while Ireland recorded a 10.8% rise.

German National Tourism Office director for UK and Ireland, Klaus Lohmann said: “It’s clear from the popularity of rural interest television shows, specialist publications and the media, that people in the UK and Ireland have a deep-seated love and respect for rural life – just as we do in Germany.  Exploring rural and ‘green’ Germany will enable visitors to discover many fascinating regions and areas they may not previously have known, with picture-box villages, incredible landscapes and the chance to relax and get away from it all.”
