92 Percent of all Germans have never been to New York

GfK-Survey – Travelers from Berlin and North Rhine-Westphalia like to visit the US metropolis in particular – Austrians are flying to New York more often.

91.9 percent, or about 64.6 million Germans above the age of 14, have never been to New York. Or, to put it in other terms, approximately eight percent or about 5.7 million Germans have already visited the legendary American metropolis. These are the results of a representative survey carried out by the market and opinion research company GfK on behalf of Lufthansa. The airline contracted GfK to implement the survey within the context of a transnational Facebook campaign of the Lufthansa Group for Germany and Austria. 1,000 Germans and 500 Austrians were interviewed.

Interesting details

The disparities with respect to the regional distribution in Germany are striking. In particular, people from Berlin (about 16% of the city’s inhabitants) and inhabitants from North Rhine-Westphalia (13.5%) have already been to New York once, whereas a far lower percentage of citizens in other federal states (only 2% to 8%) have been to this city on the East Coast of the USA. Furthermore, people above their Fifties (25%) as well as individuals with a high school diploma or a higher level of education (30%) have already traveled to New York.

In comparison to Austria, only a smaller number of Germans have been to the ‘Big Apple’. After all, 18 percent of Austrians have already traveled to New York. This means that Germany’s neighbor has a higher affinity to New York.
