City of Cape Town ready to welcome German tourists

The City of Cape Town (COCT) says it is excited by the news that Germany has now joined the list of countries to drop travel restrictions on Southern Africa.

Travel restrictions were implemented after South African scientists identified the Omicron variant. However, the latest research has shown that travel bans are ineffective and only serve to punish the economies of countries that have been banned.

According to a statement by the COCT, Germany’s revised travel update comes at just the right time, where German travellers are often eager to escape their harsh winter in exchange for a beautiful summer holiday in Cape Town.

“We look forward to welcoming these visitors on the Lufthansa flights to Cape Town from Munich and Frankfurt.

“Just a few weeks ago, we launched our destination marketing campaign in Munich and other major cities. The campaign aims to show the diversity of experiences and the beauty of Cape Town,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, Germany remains a significant travel and trade partner to the Mother City as their partnership has been fruitful for many years.
