German guests flock to Denmark for Easter holidays

Despite inflation and economic uncertainty throughout Europe, it seems that German tourists will flock to the Danish holiday country at Easter. This is according to one of Denmark’s largest rental agencies, DanCenter, which can report a nationwide increase of as much as 28% in the number of stays among German tourists during Easter this year compared to Easter in 2022. 

Easter means time to relax in a cottage house or holiday home. At least this is the case among German tourists, who are ready to announce their arrival in the Danish holiday country when Easter knocks.

DanCenter, which is one of the largest holiday home rental companies in Denmark with more than 5,900 holiday homes, reports a significant increase in the number of stays among German tourists, who have chosen to cross the border to spend Easter days in the Danish holiday home areas. More specifically, this is an increase of 28% compared to Easter last year, and this pleases the Service and Operations Manager at DanCenter, Kaye Rosengaard: 


The Germans return to the Danish holiday destination is, according to our own booking figures, a general trend across the country, while Danish guests keep the same high level from Easter last year. If we look at the overall increase in bookings across all nationalities, it lands in Easter days at 18% more than Easter last year, and this is largely due to the large backlash from our neighbor in the south”, she says.

Kaye Rosengaard further explains that DanCenter has recently scaled the marketing of their holiday homes and holiday homes significantly on the German market:

Historically, the German market has always been favorable to us due to a generally high desire to rent, but these years German tourists are hungrier than ever to spend a holiday home in Denmark. Therefore, in recent months, we have stepped up our marketing efforts in Germany, and combined with the end of the pandemic we are now beginning to see clear results. In addition to a significant increase in the number of stays during Easter, Germans also account for many of the summer holiday bookings that are continuously ticking in”, Kaye Rosengaard concludes.
