The famed Turkish resort city of Antalya has welcomed more than a million German tourists so far this year.
According to Recep Yavuz, head of the Antalya City Council Tourism Working Group, said, “In the first six months of this year, 955,000 German tourists visited Antalya. As of the first week of July, the number of German tourists exceeded 1 million.”

More than 3 million German tourists are expected to visit the Turkish Riviera resort this year, he added.
Along with its stunning beaches and natural beauty, Türkiye’s tourist hub Antalya’s popularity also rises among foreign home buyers.
