Overview: The German Government established the information portal Corona-Navigator.de to provide current news, facts and recommendations for action for the tourism industry.

The Federal Competence Centre for Tourism carries out the necessary relevance check and its own classification of news. The service is supplemented by the Tourism Sentiment Barometer, which surveys business expectations in tourism on a daily basis.

The new information offering is an important addition to the media offerings, which are also bundled on Corona-Navigator.de. The range of information is constantly updated and expanded. The portal is optimized for use by smartphones. Many contents can be freely exported via RSS feed.
