Working for Berlin

Berlin’s networkers for tourism and culture

visitBerlin is the first stop for information on tourism and congresses in our city. We actively promote these and related areas in Berlin, and cultivate a large and effective network in the city. We work closely with local partners in the hotel trade, the cultural, tourism and sports sectors, and in the political and business spheres.

We also maintain close contacts with the twelve Berlin boroughs. Our broad network and intensive cooperation across the city is a crucial factor in Berlin’s enduring success as a travel destination and an internationally renowned convention city.

We also initiate concrete projects within Berlin to promote a positive relationship between Berliners and visitors.

A brief overview of our tasks

visitBerlin advises and supports Berlin’s hotels

We consult with and support hotels in Berlin, working with them to develop marketing campaigns, providing booking services for accommodation and events, and managing the non-profit organisation visitBerlin Partnerhotel e.V.

We support partners for tourism in the city

Apart from working together on marketing campaigns  we also regularly develop new cooperation models to promote Berlin. Our close cooperation partners, for instance, include the Intoura association of tourist attractions in Berlin.

Promoting Berlin as a strong convention location

With the non-profit Berlin Event Network e.V. (former Convention Partner e.V.) we have created a unique network for meetings and congresses in Berlin, helping to ensure that the city remains in the top international rankings in the conventions sector.

Partners for Berlin’s cultural scene

We know just how important a vibrant cultural scene is for Berlin, and have a dedicated Cultural Officer cultivating close contacts to many of the city’s cultural institutions. The remit here is to encourage, support and coordinate synergies between major cultural events and venues.

Working together with the boroughs and political sphere

In our coordinating role of Destination Development, we work together with the Berlin Senate, boroughs and districts. We hold a regular series of meetings with the Berlin boroughs as a forum for exchanging views and information on developments in the tourist sector. Over the last years, we have intensified this cooperation through joint presentations at trade fairs such as the ITB and our activities to support the promotion of local neighbourhood tourism.
