Berlin & Brandenburg: The hospitality industry loses a large part of its turnover


Berlin & Brandenburg
Hospitality industry loses much of its sales

Berlin (dpa / bb) –  The  closure of the hospitality industry at the beginning of November hit hoteliers and innkeepers hard. In the month, the Berlin businesses made an average of only a quarter of the usual turnover, Brandenburger half – restaurants with take-away sales, hotels with business travelers.


 The  Berlin-Brandenburg Statistics Office put the sales decline in the industry in Berlin at 75.1 percent compared to November 2019. In Brandenburg, the decrease was 51.5 percent. Hotels and pensions were each more affected than the catering trade.

This has an impact on employment: in November, almost a quarter fewer people worked in the Berlin hospitality industry than a year earlier. In Brandenburg there were 17.5 percent fewer employees.

Restaurants and pubs are still closed, at least until mid-February. Tourist overnight stays are prohibited in hotels. ©
