German National Tourist Board recently held trade events in Beijing and Shanghai, with six German companies, including Steigenberger Hotels and Lufthansa, participating in them.

The two fairs were aimed at strengthening ties between tourism industries of the two countries. The German companies, and local tourism offices of Berlin and Dresden, discussed with Chinese travel agencies ways to enhance integration of the two markets over the internet.

According to the German government, the overnight stays of Chinese tourists in Germany were more than 2.54 million in 2015. In the first quarter of this year, the overnight stays of all foreign tourists in Germany was 15 million, up by 7 percent for the same period last year.

Ralf Ostendorf, director of Berlin Tourism Bureau, said his city offers lots to offer — from operas to museums, clubs, food and medical tourism.
