The idea behind the slow trips is to have an offer that is special and different and offers an “off switch” to our fast-paced society. Slow trips offers do not focus on sightseeing. On the contrary, slow trips participants should and are allowed to take time for the country and its people and immerse themselves in the stories of the locals. They are invited to slow down and have the opportunity to experience typical regional traditions or special handicrafts live and to get their hands dirty for once in order to return home richer in experience and with a special experience in their pocket. Last but not least, all slow trips are designed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. European everyday cultures with tourist value meet exciting personalities who immerse the participants in their world and let them look behind the scenes. In Fürstenwalde, for example, you will be introduced to the secrets of the centuries-old art of brewing, and during the brewing course you will be allowed to make your very own beer and bake some spent grain bread. Make music with stones and learn all kinds of interesting facts about the world of erratic blocks at the Findlingshof in Strausberg. Learning about plants and herbs, collecting them and making valuable and healthy products from them is a slow trip you can experience in the Berlin countryside. We would like to present one of our slow trips in more detail on stage and talk to the provider about it.
