Germany’s mobile home strongholds are far to the north and south. This is where the highest densities of holiday companions per inhabitant can be found, according to an evaluation of figures from the Federal Motor Transport Authority by the German Press Agency. The highest value is obtained for the registration district of Schleswig-Flensburg. On the key date of January 1, there were 25.3 mobile homes per 1,000 inhabitants.

This is followed by North Friesland and Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria, each with 23.8, Weilheim-Schongau south-west of Munich with 23.5 and Plön south-east of Kiel with 23.3 mobile homes per 1000 inhabitants. The next four registration districts – Rendsburg-Eckenförde, Landsberg am Lech, Oberallgäu and Ostholstein – are also in Schleswig-Holstein or Bavaria. Number ten, Lüchow-Dannenberg with 19.1 mobile homes per inhabitant in Lower Saxony.

The nationwide average is 10.1 mobile homes per 1000 inhabitants. The lowest values ​​are in Offenbach am Main and Halle an der Saale, each with 3.4, ahead of Frankfurt am Main with 3.5 and Frankfurt an der Oder with 3.7.

Overall, there is a gap between town and country. While there are no independent cities or urban districts at the top end of the ranking, they are pretty much among themselves at the bottom end.

The number of mobile homes in Germany rose sharply during the Corona crisis. Within three years – since January 1, 2020 – there has been an increase of 42 percent to 838,255 at the beginning of the year. Even then, Schleswig-Flensburg was in first place when it came to mobile home density.
