ITB Berlin opens its gates once again this year from 4 to 8 March. At the world’s largest travel trade fair, Berlin presents itself as a holiday destination together with the surrounding state of Brandenburg in Hall 12.

 

 

‘Berlin is the showcase for the world\'s biggest travel fair. We present our national and international guests with a cosmopolitan tourism and convention destination. In expert discussions we put Berlin on the agenda of the international travel industry,’ says visitBerlin CEO Burkhard Kieker. \"We invite you to take a closer look on the visiting days: with the new app, “Going Local Berlin”, as well as on tours through the bicycle metropolis. Berlin is currently writing a strong comeback story as a world city. Guests from all over the world can experience high and subculture, the relaxed atmosphere, and authentic historical locales.’

 

 

The focus this year will be on Berlin as a liveable city, in the cycling tours area, guests can take virtual rides along different routes in Berlin and Brandenburg and download the corresponding information directly onto their smartphones. In addition, visitBerlin is presenting its new “Going Local Berlin” app, a tool to help visitors explore Berlin’s diverse neighbourhoods. The “Berlin Bar”, meanwhile, will feature various bars from across the city offering samples of their best cocktail creations.
