Germany focuses on health

Whether travelling with the whole family for health treatment or to simply unwind, relax and enjoy the stunning nature, Germany is the ideal destination for wellness and leisure. With medical and business visas now open for travellers, it is time to book travel into Germany from the GCC.

"Travel trends are changing rapidly and owing to the pandemic, people are less likely to travel for the reasons they used to. They are more inclined to travel for the betterment of their health or to simply ‘feel good’. In Germany, we have a special focus on wellness and health. We are very keen to welcome GCC travellers back to our country during Summer 2021 with our campaign, Germany Summer Cities 2021, #GreenSummerStories", said Yamina Sofo, Director Sales & Marketing, German National Tourist Office, Gulf countries.

One of Germany’s biggest attractions is that it offers one of the most innovative, advanced, and professional healthcare systems in the world. Throughout the pandemic, Germany has implemented the highest standards and regulations in order to keep travellers safe, whilst its wellness industry is perfectly equipped to send tourists home feeling better, renewed and rejuvenated.

From preventive care to rehabilitation or treatment for acute cases, Germany has an offering of over 2,000 hospitals using the latest technologies, ensuring the highest quality and the best of well-trained medical staff. GCC travellers have a long tradition of seeking health treatment in Germany, with Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the UAE being the largest source markets.

Owing to the strong relationship between the GCC and Germany, the healthcare infrastructure is well-equipped to accommodate the needs of the Gulf clientele, including Arabic speaking medical teams, halal food in the hospitals, complemented by a range of facilities for accompanying families.
