BERLIN, July 31 (Itar-Tass) - What do Germans prefer to do on their vacation? The Hamburg-based Fund for Future Issues (BAT) made some curious findings after it had polled over 4,000 Germans older than 14.

Seventy-nine percent of respondents replied that visiting restaurants and eating tasty food were their most favorite pastimes during vacations.

Excursions and sightseeing came second in that rating (70%) while swimming and bathing was third. Sixty-two percent of German vacationers replied that they liked walking.

Sport is a much less popular pastime for German vacationers: only 22% of the respondents said that they maintained a sport regime and led an active way of life while on leave.

Most respondents (58%) said that a leave was a good opportunity for them to get enough sleep and goof off. Many German vacationers could do with a nap after lunch.

It turned out that German women spend their vacation slightly different than men. There are also differences among various age groups. People under 34 years old talk a lot over their phones and go to dancing parties more frequently than people older than 55.

A vacation is a sacred thing for the Germans and a time when they try to catch up with what they have little time to do during the year.
