More than three million Germans visited Holland last year

Just over three million Germans visited the Netherlands last year for either business or pleasure, the Dutch tourist board NBTC said on Friday.

It is the first time German visitor numbers have broken the three million barrier.

Beach holidays are the biggest attraction but the Netherlands’ proximity to Germany, its accessibility and the fact it is family-friendly are also big draws, the NBTC said.
