Without taking into account the price changes (nominal), the hospitality industry recorded 36 percent less, as the statistics authority reported in Wiesbaden on Monday.

Preliminary monthly values ​​up to and including November are included in the estimate.

The effects of the tightened lockdown in December were initially estimated.


In November, which was also affected by widespread operational restrictions, sales were nominally 66.4 percent below those of the same month last year.

The hotels were hit particularly hard here with a decline of 81.9 percent over the year.

Catering businesses got off comparatively well with a decline of 43.2 percent.
