The number of hotel overnight stays almost tripled year-on-year in May this year

This year may well turn out to be even better than last year, according to the latest figures. Almost 30,000 overnight stays were registered in May, which is 3,500 more than last year’s May and June combined.

Last year’s number of overnight stays is an increase of 7,461 on 2019. For comparison, only 94,940 overnight stays were registered throughout 2020, the year when the Covid pandemic massively disrupted the tourism industry.
