the Closure under coronaudbruddet have been hard on the Danish hotels, holiday resorts, camping sites and hostels, which, collectively, have had a halving in the accommodation in the first half of 2020.
It shows data from Statistics Denmark. Overall the number of nights dropped to the 7,64 - million- a decrease of 47 percent compared to the year before.
It is especially hotels, which have been hit hard - especially in the big cities - where the accommodation has declined by 57 percent.
the Campsites are not so hard hit with a decline of 24 percent.
Also udlejningerne of homes have fallen sharply in the first half with 33 percent fewer rentals.
It is especially municipalities in western Jutland, which have been hard hit by fewer sommerhusgæster. The municipality of Ringkøbing Skjern and Varde are the municipalities, which have lost the most number of nights in number. Then comes the Barrels.
Particularly German has historically been responsible for the majority of the udlejningerne in the cottages, but it has not been possible, while the Danish borders were closed to tourists.
From June there started to be significant improvement in the numbers compared with the spring months.
It is, among other things, together with, to the Danish border was opened for tourists in the latter half of June.
At represented the interests of Danish Industry will become the trend in the first half of the year designated as a historic setback. That is how it sounds from Sune K. Jensen, who is head of the tourism and experience economy.
- It has been a bloodbath in the first half of the year. After the reopening, we see better bars, but it is a very two-part picture.
- For the hotels in the cities of 2020 is more or less written off, while sommerhusudlejerne enjoy that very many danes are on holiday in Denmark, and that the germans also turned back, he says.
15. June was opened for germans, norwegians and icelanders, and 27. June was opened for a large number of other european countries.
There is a requirement that you must have booked at least six nights in Denmark in order to get into the country, if you are stopped the border.
People from Norway, northern German Schleswig-Holstein and a number of Swedish cross-border regions are not covered by the rule. Danish Industry calls for the rule will be scrapped.
- It is a strange ekstraregel, when you now have introduced some criteria around smittetrykket, in relation to the nationalities permitting travel into, says Sune K. Jensen.
While the beginning of the year has been hard on sommerhusudlejerne, they can rejoice in the fact that bookings for the rest of the year is record-breaking.
At the end of the month of June was bookingerne 18 percent over the same month last year.
