Come as a guest, leave as a friend

We Greeter welcome guests to our cities and take them on an individual tour.

Without payment, as is common among friends.



A tour -called a “greet”- usually lasts 2-3 hours, maybe longer.

Just for you

We do not form groups, you do the tour only with the people you are traveling with, maximum we welcome six people. Even if you are alone, you can request a greet.

Our city - our guests

Wir tun dies aus Liebe zu unserer Stadt und aus Interesse an unseren Gästen.


You will experience very personal and individual tours and you will learn about our everyday life.

Greeters in these cities are looking forward to your request:

In other countries Greeters will welcome you too, find all destinations on International Greeter Association.
