Experts are expecting Swiss tourism to lag this summer, strained by the strong Swiss franc.
A prognosis for May through October released by the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs predicts a 1.7 percent drop in hotel stays compared to the same time last year.
Swiss guest stays are expected to rise marginally.
The analysis from the BAK Basel economic institute expects hotel stays to begin to rise again next year, about 1 percent, and increase nearly 3 percent in 2014.
