Tourism is Berlin’s top industry and last year saw a record number of visitors, 23 million overnight guests, coming to the city. Last summer, a new Berlin tourism plan was released with several measures designed to shift the focus from the needs of tourists to also including more concerns from residents.
We spoke to Christian Tänzler from the city’s tourism office, Visit Berlin, to break down the numbers and take a look at the plan. City planners and policy-makers want YOUR input. If you have ideas or concerns you would like to share, follow the Visit Berlin link to have your say.
