The German center for tourism counted around 2.5 million stays of Chinese people in Germany. That’s a rapid growth of about a quarter more than the previous year. But why do Chinese love Germany?

There are many explanations:  Chinese people like Europe and especially Germany for our landscapes, beautiful castles, architecture, and peculiars cities.

Also: Chinese people love German shops. Michael Mauerhoff, marketing chief of Global Blue Germany, said that Chinese often visit shopping malls and buy clothes, watches, jewelry, leather items, bags, wallets and so on.

German labels are much cheaper in Germany than in China – and the items often are status symbols. Especially German manufacturing is regarded as high-class quality – from a cuckoo clock from the Black Forest or a Mercedes Benz car.
