What is a Greet?

During a Greet, your Greeter takes you on a walk through "his" Berlin. You can discover the city from a personal perspective.

In contrast to a standard city tour, with dates and lists of boring facts, you will learn about the individual stories of the Greeter Berlin and the different neighborhoods.

Conclusion: Our Greeters are the "sights" with their very own anecdotes!

Our Core Values


Greeters work on a voluntary basis, giving a friendly welcome to all their visitors.

Small groups

Greeters welcome individual guests and groups of up to 6 people. The focus is on the dialogue between the Greeter and the guest.

Free of charge

The walk with a Greeter is free of charge.

Without discrimination

All guests and volunteers are welcome without discrimination.


Greeters support sustainable tourism. They respect the natural and social environment. Greeters promote the image of their city.

Cultural exchange

Greeters help build a better world by establishing people-to-people contact.

The Greeter Concept

The idea of a "welcome visitor programme" was launched in 1992 by American Lynn Brooks and her Big Apple Greeters in New York City.

Lynn wanted to show guests "her" New York: a great city with many different neighborhoods, people, and stories. Since then, numerous destinations all over the world have been added, which are organized as independent groups within the International Greeter Association.

In Germany, too, there are now Greeters in many cities. You can find a complete overview at

Liebe Steffi, wir hatten eine interessante, unterhaltsame Fahrradtour mit Charly. Trotz der Kälte hat es uns viel Spaß gemacht und wir haben viel gesehen und über Berlin und seine Bewohner erfahren. Liebe Grüße, Claudia und Hanspeter 2

Hallo Steffi, vielen lieben Dank für den organisierten Greet mit Meinhard in Alt Tegel. Wir kannten diesen Ortsteil nur als Endstation der U-Bahn und waren total erstaunt, wie schön es dort ist. Dank Meinhard haben wir einen tiefen Einblick in diesen "Kiez" bekommen, es war ein wunderschöner und erlebnisreicher Tag, an den wir uns immer wieder gerne erinnern werden. Meinhard kannte seinen Stadtteil von der "Pike" auf, seine liebenswerte Art hat uns sehr gefallen. Wir kommen gerne wieder. Liebe Grüße nach Berlin von Edgar und Bettina!
