New Delhi: Germany, which received 748,737 visitors from India in the year gone by, hopes to see a 3-5 per cent growth in 2017, an official said.

"What makes Germany one of the most lucrative choices is its sheer variety of activities, attractions and experiences, all available at great value for money," Romit Theophilus, India Director of the German National Tourist Office (GNTO) told reporters said.  "With over 20,000 castles dotting the immaculately splendid German landscape, the country boasts of opulence and scenic beauty fit for a fairytale. Add to this spectacular gardens and you can transport yourself to paradise."

The figure for 2016 saw a growth of 8.1 per cent from 2015, he added.

Towards ramping up numbers, he said that while "Luther 2017 - 500 years since the Reformation" was the GNTO's global marketing theme, for India, the key marketing theme for 2017 would be palaces, parks and gardens. 

Speaking on the ocassion, German Ambassador Martin Ney said that Germany is widely recognised as one of the top travel destinations for good reason: "It offers incredible art treasures and magnificent architecture, breathtaking natural beauty and an unrivaled tourism infrastructure. Germany is also a welcoming, comfortable, safe, and affordable place to visit. And there is so much to see, do and enjoy."
