Demand for eco-tourism and sustainable travel is also growing in Germany. According to a 2021 study, three-quarters of German travellers see sustainable travel as important. More and more travel providers are using legally binding environmental and social standards in their branding, supported by the associated certificates and labels. These relate to the sparing use of natural resources such as water, for example, climate-friendly transport, reducing waste, and involvement in species protection projects. Organic farms offer holiday rooms with regional and seasonal menus, while eco campsites promote conservation and environmentalism.
Travellers in Germany love spending time in its rich and varied natural environments, such as the 103 natural parks and 16 UNESCO biosphere reserves. Everyone should be able to get around easily in Germany. To this end, many initiatives ensure that people with disabilities can travel without restrictions in Germany.
