Upturn in demand in the Swiss hotel sector in 2021

Neuchâtel, 24.02.2022 - In 2021, the Swiss hotel sector recorded 29.6 million overnight stays, i.e. an increase of 24.6% (+5.8 million) compared with 2020. This increase can be explained by the restrictive measures linked to the 2020 health crisis. The number of overnight stays certainly increased sharply over one year but nonetheless remained far below the figures for 2019 (–25.3%). Swiss demand reached a historic level with a total of 21.0 million overnight stays which represents an increase of 27.9% (+4.6 million). Overnight stays increased by 17.1% (+1.3 million) and totalled 8.6 million units. These are the final results from the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).
