After a difficult year in 2020, a small rebound can be seen in tourism in Luxembourg. Thus, in the first six months of 2021, hotel stays increased by 14% compared to 2020, to 222,972, and camping stays by 68% to 19,244.
The national agency Luxembourg for Tourism points out that hotels estimate that they recorded an occupancy rate of 36% for July and 44% for August, compared to 35% for each of these two months in 2020. Campsites, on the other hand, estimate that their rate has remained stable at 60% in July and August. ‘And the prospects of tourism in Luxembourg for the end of 2021 are good,’ pointed out the Minister of Tourism Lex Delles.
Rural areas have benefited greatly from strong demand for nature and outdoor leisure stays, while urban tourism remains more strongly impacted by the pandemic, especially since it relies in part on business travel and international clients who are still largely missing. To help the sector through this difficult period, 125 million euros in non-reimbursable aid and 25 million in reimbursable aid have been paid out. The Ministry also intends to provide the means for a revival of business tourism in 2022 and 2023.
Luxembourg boasts a total of 220 hotels and similar establishments with 7,609 rooms in total as well as 79 camping sites with a capacity of 41,789 persons. Not bad for such a small country of a mere 2,586 km2 !
