German journalist Heinz Bück has been exploring Northern Ireland by campervan. He is accompanied by a small group of fellow campervan enthusiasts, who are here to soak up the spectacular scenery and the wealth of things to see and do here. His trip is supported by Tourism Ireland and Tourism NI.
Heinz Bück’s website (reportage.redactionsbureau.de) is extremely popular and he’ll be posting lots of great photos and details of his Northern Ireland adventure online – inspiring his readers and followers to come and discover the destination for themselves. The group’s packed itinerary includes Titanic Belfast, the Giant’s Causeway and Enniskillen.
In 2016, we welcomed over 69,000 German visitors to Northern Ireland, up +7% on 2015, contributing more than £15 million to the local economy. Tourism Ireland is undertaking an extensive programme of promotional activity once again throughout 2017, to build on that success.
Zoë Redmond, Tourism Ireland’s Manager for Central Europe, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to support Heinz and his group on their journey around Northern Ireland. It’s a really effective way of engaging with his German followers, sparking their curiosity about the destination. The group has been really impressed by our spectacular scenery, the range of things to see and do, as well as by the friendliness of the people they met. I am confident that Heinz’s visit will result in lots of positive publicity for the Causeway Coastal Route and Northern Ireland.”
