BERLIN TRAVEL NIGHT
The Student Hotel - Berlin
Once the only way for many people to travel, today hiking is much more than just a mode of transportation. By exploring on foot, the journey becomes just as important as the destination. As part of the Berlin Travel Night #08, the two authors Tim Voors and Barbara Schaefer take us with them on their hikes along the west coast of the USA or across the Alps to Italy and share their stories of departure, adventure and traveling alone.

At ITB Berlin works a clique of true travelholics and we very much love what they do. For this reason we decided to celebrate our next Berlin Travel Night #07 at these guys party. On screen you’ll see plenty of adventures from impressive destinations and hidden gems as well as moving travel stories, which really get underneath your skin. Let’s get carried away by real travel stories!
On the upcoming Berlin Travel Night #06, everything will revolve around the topic of summer in Berlin and Brandenburg. Our speakers will take you on a journey through our local flora and fauna. Manuel Larbig, biologist and survival trainer, will be your guide on a wild herb discovery tour. Doro Böttcher, author of “Berlin mit Kind,” will set sail on a houseboat tour through Brandenburg with a detour to a secret island. Sina Schwarz & Theresa Wißmann, from Milch & Moos, will present their new book and cross the Berlin countryside on foot in search of culinary treasures.
Berlin Travel Night returns with stories of overlooked destinations in the Near and Far East. Geographer, journalist, and moderator Katie Gallus takes us on a journey through lesser-explored lands, including Kurdistan, Northern Iraq. Travel editor and writer Jeroen van Marle will join the evening by sharing his recent explorations of Damascus, Syria. And photographer and tour operator, Gianluca Pardelli dives deep into his fascination with the Caucasus region’s multifarious people and cultures.
