good overnight figures? Daniela Schulze waves. "Unfortunately not with us," says the boss of the Görlitz parking hotel on the bank of the Neißer.

Overall, the overnight industry is not bad. This emerges from the figures that the Görlitz city administration has now published. However, they only apply to the first half of the year, i.e. until June. The months of July, August and September have not yet been evaluated.

In the first half of the year, 121,545 overnight stays were counted in Görlitz. that is much more than in the Corona years 2021 (38,511 overnight stays) and 2020 (71,403). It is slowly approaching the pre-Corona year 2019 (1377,175). The situation is similar in the average occupancy of the beds offered. It was 32.9 percent in the first half of the year. for comparison: in 2021 it was only 11.0 percent, in 2020, on the other hand, 19.7 percent and in the pre-corona year 2019 smooth 34.0 percent.

The (organized) bike tourism left springs. But the good thing with him is: his hotel is smaller, he has never bet on bus tourists. Completely different groups come to him. "With individual tourists we have reached the level of time before pandemic and small groups such as family or class reunions come again as before." And during the week, business travelers fill the beds: "This complements well."

The subsequent months of July and August were really great: "We are a beach and holiday hotel." Like the hotel "Zum Hothertor", the hotel "Island of the Senses" has never put on bus tourists.
