According to the preliminary results of the Federal Statistical Office (Destatis), that was almost three times as many (175.7%) as in March 2021, when there was a ban on accommodation for private travelers due to the corona pandemic. Compared to March 2020, when the first corona-related lockdown began, the number of overnight stays was 58.8% higher. However, they were still almost a quarter (-23.7%) lower than in March of the pre-crisis year 2019.
