The Süddeutsche Zeitung describes Greece as a “new Mallorca”, noting that it is also suitable for autumn holidays. The article even emphasizes that in the summer of 2021 Greece was more popular than Spain.
“Greece and Spain had the greatest demand as a tourist destination, according to TUI data, and in fact Crete surpassed Mallorca as the most popular destination for the German summer vacation”, the Bavarian newspaper reports.
The article refers to the “impressive results” for tourism in Kefalonia and Ithaca, but also in Crete, the Cyclades and the Dodecanese.
“September was a good month for Greece and in October the demand was also increased. Travel agencies and airlines have delivered travel plans to Greece, such as the German airline Condor, which plans charter responses to Crete by November.” the report says.
