In 2023, the number of hotel overnight stays in Hanover will be just over 2,3 million, 0,9 percent higher than in the pre-Corona and previous record year 2019.

This is proven by the official figures from the Lower Saxony State Office for Statistics (LSN), which were published on March 28th. While the number of hotel overnight stays in the city in the first half of 2023 was slightly below the comparable year of 2019, the numbers caught up again in the second half of the year. The stable increase compared to the pre-Corona year and thus the base year for comparisons shows solid growth in times of global uncertainty. What is also outstanding is the increase in overnight stays from 2022 to 2023, which is above expectations with an increase of 16,1 percent.

Of the total 2.359.354 overnight stays last year, the State Statistical Office recorded 479.352 from abroad. In the previous year, 2022, out of a total of 2.031.876 visitors, 385.223 international guests booked accommodation in the state capital; in 2019, the statistics list 2.338.758 from abroad out of 482.083 overnight stays.

“The fact that the number of overnight stays this year exceeded the previous record year of 2019 by almost one percent marks a significant success for the location and is the result of Hanover’s resilience as a tourism and business location. This development has been accompanied by increased demand for day and city tourism. The newly launched overnight packages for families have created great demand in the area of ​​day tourism; as well as our new city tours, for which we have trained twenty new tour guides, such as the flashlight tour for children and the crime bike tour,” says Hans Nolte, Managing Director of Hannover Marketing und Tourismus GmbH (HMTG), commenting on the balance sheet.
