Airbnb is excited to announce the launch of Experiences in all of Germany. Today, host-led activities will be offered by local experts throughout the country and booked by both locals and visitors alike. Initially launched in Berlin over a year ago, Experiences have grown 5X in the German capital with bookings increasing by approximately 300 percent. On the back of this success, and starting today, anyone who wants to become an Experience host in Germany can apply to offer an Experience on the platform.
Experiences allow German residents to showcase what they love and cherish about their country in a way not often found in traditional tourist environments. These local-led Experiences are handcrafted, curated activities that immerse travelers in local communities and allow them to experience a different and authentic side of Germany while allowing locals to share their skills, culture and stories with visitors.
Experiences on Airbnb help generate a more diverse and sustainable form of tourism. We are pleased that travelers can now get to know Germany better through the eyes of local people. Nationwide, passionate local experts can enjoy the benefits of tourism by sharing their skills with travelers who want to experience the real Germany.

Now, in 2018 the Airbnb platform offers 10,000 Experiences in nearly 180 cities.
