British holidaymakers primarily irked German tourists due to their unrestrained alcohol consumption. Also, 37% of German tourists were annoyed by British tourists’ consistent tendency to “occupy” beach loungers and umbrellas. In that particular instance, only one nation was more vexing than the Brits – the Germans themselves.
