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

Create the greatest district walk­ing guides, in partnership with the finest hotels in the world

Remember when we used to buy actual guidebooks?

Now we save us that money, because it’s 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 district guide at a time.

What makes our guides unique

Their beauty

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!

Our curation

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.

The walks

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.

A smart design

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.

Where you find them

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

But we learned early on, that the best way to reach discerning visitors in our favorite cities, is to place our guides right into the rooms of the best hotels in town and in a few select guest apartments. So we started exclusive partnerships with the best boutique, design, art, and even luxury hotels.

We already publishing our guides in partnership with over 30 accommodations, 7 of them 5-star hotels.

Among many other, we are proud to work with …

100% 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. 

They’re made of love

They’re made of love

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.

What’s new

Double touch-down in our third city: Benvinguda Barcelona!

Double touch-down in our third city: Benvinguda Barcelona!

It took us so long to start here, that we could’t help but start with 2 guides: Gràcia and El Born (and some of its northern adjacency).

A big thanks to our local partner, João, and his helpers, namely the fabulous Holger and Tito. We laughed – and cried – a lot together while making this happen. More districts coming soon!

We climbed yet another hill in Lisboa

We climbed yet another hill in Lisboa

Walking down from Chiado, we conquered Baixa, and what’s north-east of it up the hills with our second Lisboa guide. We would have named our guides “Western Hills” and “Eastern Hills”. Nobody liked that idea. So we called this one “Baixa, Mouraria & Alfama”.

A big shout out to Ayaka Daimon for contributing the lovely map.

Boom! Here comes our most beautiful art print ever

Boom! Here comes our most beautiful art print ever

We say that for every new print we make, and we feel it every time 🙂 All our partners in Lisboa already got one. On sale at some of our partner shops soon!

Thanks to Tomislav, for this amazing and beautifully detailed illustration. And thanks to Kai at Stickart screen printing in Kreuzberg for putting it on paper perfectly.
