Mecklenburg-Vorpommern – the number 1 destination for Germans
The Region of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is one of the most beautiful and interesting holiday areas in Germany. Almost 2,000 kilometre of coastline, more than 2,000 lakes, extensive forests and conservation areas and also numerous architectural, artistic and cultural monuments offer unique conditions for a restful holiday. Alongside Bavaria, this makes Mecklenburg-Vorpommern the most popular German domestic holiday destination.
The hotel and restaurant industry with around 6,600 businesses and more than 50,000 workers is the core industry and the engine of tourism in MV. It generates annual turnover of around 1.8 billion euros. Those are just a few of the figures which underline the importance of the hotel and restaurant industry as one of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern‘s leading service industries. It contributes 12 percent of regional income which is at least three times as much as the national average.
