In the first part of this paper some empirical results of the monetary TSA-tables T 1 to T 6 and the employment table T 7 for the German TSA are presented. In 2000, the gross value added of tourism activities of private households in Germany made up nearly 57.5 billion Euros, meaning a share of 3.2 % of the total gross value added.
