Abstract

Tourism in the GDR was organised by trade unions and enterprises which owned most of the holiday facilities, the private sector was clearly underrepresented. As a result of the transformation process private-public partnership has played a great part in the successful development of tourism in East Germany. In the first years after the fall of the Iron Curtain, the population of the eastern Länder seized the new opportunity to travel into the capitalistic countries ; on the other side in East Germany the accomodation capacity and tourist frequency decreased. Since the mid-nineties people from the western parts of Germany discovered the unknown East. Today the tourism infrastructure in the new Länder has developed to a high standard, and the A. sense a trend that eastern Germany overtake the western in some fields. - (HPB)
