Bednights and seasonal labour migration

In the inner Ötz Valley, you find typical tourist nationalities and typical worker nationalities, although Germany dominates in both categories. Considerably more visitors than (seasonal) migrant workers come from the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Belgium, France and Switzerland. In addition to Germany, the majority of workers are from Hun- gary, the successor states to Yugoslavia, Slovakia, Romania and the Czech Republic, countries that make little contribution to the bednight total. The share of Hungarian workers increased in the 2012/13 season, from 20.97 to 24.22 %, while the German share fell from 31.30 to 26.82 %.
