I try to obtain all ways/nodes/relations with a special tag from OpenStreetMap. I use the following code to receive all hotels (in a small town in Austria):

//[out:csv(name, "addr:street", "addr:city")][timeout:25];
out body;
// gather results
  // query part for: “building=* and name=*”
// print results
out body;

You may access the result via Overpass. However, this result gives me only the nodes. Ways like #89729697 also having the tourism = hotel tag are not returned.

How do I also query for the ways and relations having the tag I am looking for?


That's a quite common mistake. Please refer to this post for a more comprehensive explanation.

You need to store the area in a dedicated input set (here: myarea), otherwise the first statement inside the union statement will overwrite your area Fügen and the way/relation statement no longer have an area to work on.

Here's how your query should look like: http://overpass-turbo.eu/s/dix
