This peak value was outbid only in a national comparison by Hesse and Saarland (with 5.6 percent plus each) as well Bavaria (plus 5.4 percent). The Federal Statistical Office provided those documentation.
Unique race leader in NRW is Colognes hotel industry. Alone in the past year were 5.7 million overnight stays counted. This means an increase of 9.1 percentage for the Dome City. Dusseldorf follow after a clear gap and 4.7 million overnight stays. The increase in comparison with the previous year turns out to be smaller in the state capital with 4.7 percent as in Cologne. The both highest growth rates under the 15th largest NRW cities reached Bielefeld (+15.6 percent) and Duisburg (+11.1 percent). The both tail lights were 2017 Wuppertal (-8.8 percent) and Krefeld (-4.9 percent). Further continuous to develop positively is Dortmund, which had been for the second time in a row in Club Million with 1.03 million over-night-stays.
Due to the positive development of the recent years, I the Wuppertal Schollen hotel development is concerned that too many hotel projects had been initiated most of all in both largest cities in NRW: in Cologne are currently nearly 2.130 hotel rooms under construction. In Dusseldorf there are even 4.750 additional beds with 1000 beds alone in the airport area.
Schollen expect noticeable consequences on the effects and on the development for the room rates in Dusseldorf. Sufferers might be the runners of small and out-market holdings.
