14.6 million overnight tourists stayed in Dutch hotels, holiday parks, campsites and other accommodations in the last quarter. Statistics Netherlands reported on Friday that this number had not been this high in the third quarter before. Especially tourists from Germany and Belgium were able to find our country again en masse.

The greatest growth was among tourists from the UK, 464,000 of them came to our country. That was more than six times what it was a year ago.

On the other hand, the number of Dutch people who went on vacation in their country fell to 9.2 million. This is 8 percent less than in the third quarter of last year. But due to the increase in the number of foreign guests (5.4 million) there was a record number last summer.

And 14.6 million tourists booked a total of 49.7 million overnight stays. The majority of tourists sleep in hotels that welcomed 8.6 million guests in the last quarter. Amsterdam in particular has been very popular again, especially with foreign tourists, who have doubled in number compared to last year.

Partly because of this, Nord-Holland was the province with the largest increase in tourists. More visitors also came to southern Holland and northern Brabant. The counties of Gelderland, Overijssel and Zeeland, popular among the Dutch, have seen a decrease in the number of reservations.
