Switzerland Tourism Where Business Plays a Big Role

Rochers de Naye, and Hotel de Caux, , Switzerl...
The money made from travelers around Switzerland is a bit more business than one would expect. There are new statistics showing that 19% of the hotel overnight stays last year were from visitors that were in Switzerland to attend meetings and go on business trips. Quite often, these business trips and meetings are scheduled in high tourism locations, but are done in the off season so as not to compete with tourists on vacation, who are often ready to splurge and out buy businesses for rooms. Because hotels are a huge part of the tourism puzzle piece, and because that number is significantly up from last year, one would expect that this should give a bit of a boost to Europe's land-locked country.

It's already mid October, and it's the calm before the storm of winter travelers looking to visit and travel Switzerland during the holiday breaks, and to ski some of the most popular slopes in the world. There are plenty of places still available to stay for the upcoming season, and not all of them are out of a typcial budget. One of the most popular places has been the Backpackers Villa in Interlaken Switzerland, which is a quality hostel in the heart of the Swiss Alps. If you haven't made plans yet, and want to try something adventurous, I would highly recommend making the trip to Switzerland.
