WHY Berlin is ___________?

Because:

  • The amount of visitors coming to Berlin is growing fast and a division between the "tourist city" and the "non-tourist city" is emerging. A more responsible tourism is necessary to stop it.
  • Practical (standardised) information is available from guide books, the Tourist Information Office, your hotel concierge or the internet, but none of them provides you with a personalised and global understanding of the city.
  • Details such as what you eat and where you sleep in Berlin will completely change your perception of the city.
  • Berlin evolves constantly, places change permanently. Printed information is static and soon out-of-date, digital information is overwhelming. Berlin is ___________ filters this information for you.
  • There are many companies offering guided tours, we will be happy to help you choose the right one for you, but we will also give you advice on how to make the best of your time in Berlin on your own.
