But where are the U.S. tourists?

The year 2008 ended with a hefty plus for the Austrian tourism industry. With a total of 126.6 million hotel nights, the number of overnight stays showed a marked increase of 4.7% . According to the Austrian Office of Statistics(Statistik Austria), this was the best result since the 1990s .
Austria wasn't that popular with US. tourists. The number of U.S. visitors to Austria decreased by 17% to 484,000. With a stronger USD against the EUR, Austria hopes to again become more affordable for U.S. tourists. A good idea might be to book packages for trips to Austria which are often more economical then separate flight and hotel arrangements.
