In the rankings of Germany’s highest-revenue source markets, American travelers led all other markets with revenues of some €4.3 billion in 2012, followed by Swiss visitors (€2.4 billion) and Russian travelers (€2.2 billion). More than 2.3 million Americans visited Germany in 2012 reflecting a 4.2 percent increase from the previous year.

Last year, Germany recorded its third consecutive record year, as more than 400 million overnight stays were had in German hotels, including 4.85 million by Americans.
