The European Commission supports policymakers and stakeholders in developing better strategies for a more resilient European tourism ecosystem by gathering information and analysis on performance and trends in the sector.
EU tourism dashboard
The dashboard visualises tourism-relevant data and indicators collected from available, trusted sources covering the tourism ecosystem. It offers snapshot views of key tourism indicators for the European Union and each member country.
Flash Eurobarometer surveys reveal the preferences and attitudes of Europeans towards tourism. The Eurobarometer surveys offer a portrait of the current situation and an outlook for the upcoming seasons.
Studies and reports
The virtual tourism observatory is an online repository for reports, studies and papers relevant to tourism policymakers and stakeholders. A user-friendly tool allows the library to be searched by country, theme or year of publication. This section offers access to relevant publications of the Directorate-General for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, and the Commission, as well as to a wide range of works published by other institutions, international organisations, EU countries and academia.
