Small shop owners and Home Sharer often support each other: Cafe owners step in for the key exchange and hosts recommend cafes, shops and restaurants of their hood to her guests.
Home Sharer and their guests daily contribute to the fact that local shops - far away from the big shopping malls - become more known and popular. Therefore, BertaBerlin and Airbnb invited shop owners and Home Sharers to the Hood Tour in Neukölln. Neukölln-Auskennerin Berta pecked out hidden gems in Neukölln for this neighborhood tour.
The participants got to know the people behind the scenes and meet other Home Sharers. The cafe Espera, the vintage store Repeater, the Nussrösterei Kugu Kuruyemis and wine bar Vin Aqua Vin welcomed us. Not only did we get to know the shop owners, we also explored Neukölln on the way from location to location.
The next Hood Tour Kreuzberg takes place on the 5th of August. Let me know, if you are interested in walking with me through Kreuzberg. If you cannot wait until August, my travel guide BertaBerlin for Kreuzberg is available already ;).
BertaBerlin is available in well-chosen locations all over Neukölln, Kreuzberg and Prenzlauer Berg and online. But for those of you, who want to stay up to date, feel free to follow me on Instagram, Facebook or register for my newsletter.
