An Overview of Wellness Tourism in Germany

Participation in wellness travel in Germany remains rather low at 32%, peaking among Gen Z and Younger Millennials – half of them participating in wellness holidays. However, the majority of Gen X are interested in wellness tourism, encouraging brands to target them.

While inflation is slowly levelling off, German consumers who are less financially well off need to continue to cut on holidays. Brands can offer less expensive wellness holidays, for example, off-season deals.

German Wellness Travellers: What Consumers Want and Why

  • Barriers to Wellness Travel in Germany: Those who are struggling financially associate wellness holidays with being expensive, likely deterring them as they think they can’t afford those trips. 51% of German consumers with tight budgets have not been on a wellness holiday, but would be interested to go. To engage them, brands can show that wellness is not necessarily expensive, for instance, by promoting free-of-charge natural remedies or offering deals.
  • German Wellness Travellers: While most German consumers associate wellness holidays with being relaxing and are keen to do spa treatments when on a wellness trip, brands can promote various activities that improve wellness more holistically, for example, through exercising and nutrition. In the long term this will likely broaden the scope of the German wellness travel industry and drive market growth.
  • Wellness Tourism in Germany Trends: While spa breaks and beauty treatments are top of mind for 62% potential wellness travellers, brands need to step up their efforts to leverage a more holistic approach to wellness to raise participation. For instance, they can promote a greater variety of activities such as nutrition or exercising activities.
