We are a small collective of passionate people with one mission:

Publish the best neighbourhood walking guides in our favourite cities

Remember when we used to buy actual guidebooks?

Now we save us that money, because its all free on the internet. Instead paying dearly with precious vacation hours lost, researching blog after blog, trying to figure out what to do. But we often get lost in information, ending up zigzag-ing around with not much of a plan or any context.

What if we had a little print guide at hand, with all the right spots to visit, as well as the perfect walks connecting them, gifting us real quality time without the need to constantly look at our smart phones?

We decided to create that experience
– One beautiful neighbourhood guide at a time.

What makes our guides unique

Style
Our elaborately illustrated neighborhood guides let readers experience the beauty of their surroundings from the very first glance. We take much care of the visual appearance, you become immediately aware that the included recommendations are simply the best this hood has to offer.

Each new guide takes up to six months to create, from selecting the optimal area to cover, finding the perfect illustrator with a style fitting the local vibe to work with, to the actual execution incl. writing the reviews. In addition, we publish a limited edition silkscreen art print of the map. So the outcome really has to be beautiful enough to be looked at everyday when hanging on someone’s wall: It’s art, baby!

Selectivity
We go to great length to assemble the perfect mix of interesting sites, cafés, restaurants, bars, shops and services in our compact, easy to carry format. Each guide is good for one or even multiple days of exciting exploration and enjoyment.
Our recommendations always include the new and innovative stores, cafés, restaurants and bars, but we also have a heart for classic treats. Especially in neighbourhoods where these classics best reflect the city’s soul.

Take a look at them on our Instagram account.

Strolling
To us, simply writing up a list of places to visit and marking them on a map, would be falling short of giving you the best experience, which we believe you merit. Everybody else out there just throws spots at you, and let’s you figure out how to visit them.

We offer you multiple themed walks that make for many happy hours of exploration. Worry not about missing that super nice little place just off the short A-to-B path that your nav app wants you to follow to your next destination. We got you covered.

Smartness

A smart compact format

We reduced the guides to the necessary minimum, so you travel light and flip it open in a wink: just 9 grams of goodness, without yet another photo of that perfect Cappuccino or any logos!

Paired with a smart companion page

Every piece of info you will eventually have to take out your smart phone to use anyway, we packed on a mobile-optimised smart companion page. Load it once and all the listings’ websites, Facebook and Instagram pages, additional Wikipedia entries, phone numbers, and – of course – navigation to get there are just one touch away.

Sharing

You can find the guides at all the listed cafés, restaurants, bars, shops and services, as well as at many of the listed museums etc..

But we decided the best way to reach discerning visitors in our favorite cities is to place our guides right into their hotel rooms or guest apartments. So we teamed up with the best boutique, design, art, and even luxury hotels.

Sustainability

First of all, our beautiful guides are real keepers. Readers keep them as souvenirs, locals pin them on their walls, they are passed on to visiting friends, etc… We print them carbon neutrally and locally on thin recycled paper. We save paper by keeping them free of photos, as well as those ugly advertisements for things you don’t want to buy anyway.

They are presented to you in high-grade displays made from recycled wood by our partner WERKHAUS. We deliver them on cargo bikes from our partner velogut using our muscles and green electricity. And when we fly, we offset our carbon footprint with Atmosfair.

So let’s enjoy a relaxed coffee “to stay”, and take that nice walk afterwards. 

Soul

This of course, is the most important part. We simply love what we do and do this to create the most enjoyable experience for our friends – for whom we started this – and all the other people out there who get the guides into their hands.
We hope this shows, and you enjoy your trip. If you find anything in our guides to be wrong or got ideas on how to improve them, please reach out to us.

(Fun fact: We first wanted to call this section ‘Social’, but oh boy, never has a positive word gotten such a foul taste as fast as this one, thanks to the so-called Social Media.)

Our “Meeeerch” is coming. Here a little teaser.

We are so busy with new guides, new cities, new partnerships. But we still found the time to bring the beauty of our illustrations to a whole new category.

The products will be available exclusively through select stores listed in our guides. More soon!

Hurray! Our Kreuzberg* guide is out!

Hurray! Our Kreuzberg* guide is out!

We finally made it to the wild side of Berlin. People love it. Hotels already started writing us, wanting to add it to their guest hand-outs.

* We named it Kreuzberg guide, but it really covers the eastern part of this neighborhood plus some Neukölln (colloquially called Kreuzkölln, an expression not loved by all) and a bit of Alt-Treptow, Mitte and even Friedrichshain.

We started supplying AirBnB hosts with our guides

Being able to rent out your flat-share room while on vacation is a great thing. And we are confident that the steps to remove the black sheep abusing this great service from the system taken by the Berlin administration will work.

This is why we are happy to announce our collaboration with AirBnB.
