• Swiss Franc deters European tourists

European tourists spent fewer nights in Swiss hotels as the strong franc priced some out of the market.

Overnight stays in Swiss hotels increased 3.2% in May compared to the same month in 2009, driven by Asian tourists. The number of nights spent by visitors from Europe fell 0.5%. Italian visitors declined by almost 10% in May and Germans also spent fewer nights.
