ABOUT GREENME BERLIN
GreenMe Berlin is the ultimate eco city guide for Berlin & beyond. We connect travellers, locals and expats with the heroes of the urban green scene through immersive guided tours, podcasts, maps, events, guides & more.
Food, fashion, zero waste, bikes, urban gardens - let us be your guide and help you discover the coolest sustainable projects in town.
No matter if you live here or visit Berlin on your travels, GreenMe Berlin is made with love and passion to encourage everyone to use their individual power to create an impact. It's about being curious, trying something new and feeling inspired and empowered to shape a happier, healthier and more conscious future for everyone. Without forgetting to play and have fun!
GreenMe is highly undogmatic - no finger-wagging, no enforcements, no obligations to become a green revolutionist. We just want to show you all the great stuff Berlin has to offer!
>> Read our GreenMe Manifesto to learn what our hearts are beating for !
Apart from that, GreenMe is a social business - means we're reinvesting our profits into supporting the local eco scene, as well as donating part of the money generated i.e. on our tours to non-profits we love (past projects include Plan.A, paperplanes e.V. and Future Fashion Forward e.V.)
We are a proud member of SEND e.V. (social entrepreneurship network Germany)

WHO’S BEHIND IT?
How’s it going? I’m Claudi – an 85% vegan, part-time eco-fashion wearer, full-time cyclist, 100% Berlin-obsessed and sustainable travel & lifestyle enthusiast! All of which pushed me to create this project…

I used to be idealistic in my mid-twenties. Studied Sustainable Tourism in the UK, dreamt of making a change out there. But then the constraints of society hit me. Doubters and pessimists made me feel incapable, made me believe that there’s no way a small person like me can truly have an impact…
Yet, back in Berlin, I intuitively started to search and explore all the beautiful green, trendy and eco-minded places this city is spoiling us with. Just because I loved it!
I joined the PR team of the Berlin tourist board and journalists and bloggers from all over the world reached out to me everyday to find out what’s moving in the German capital. One trend I saw happily growing over the years was the green, sustainable – I like to call it “eco-hip” – scene in Berlin…
I started to become the specialist for any inquiries related to alternative, green lifestyles in Berlin. Always on the hunt of new trends, stories and inspiring people who are shaping the future of Berlin, I realized that this city has a big story to tell!
At the same time, I am a freedom-addict. So I decided to ditch my desk in October 2015 to become self-employed, location-independent and work on my own ideas.
In Berlin, being “eco” is not something for a harsh, idealistic minority anymore. It is hip, cool and desirable for anyone – and has therefore the potential to reach many people out there. I knew I wanted to keep helping to push this movement, inspiring Berliners, expats and people visiting the city.
And here we are – GreenMe Berlin is born! I deeply believe in this project and hope that you like it, too. Let’s have fun together & find out what Berlin has in store for us!

There’s a lot of energy in this city. And because it’s never been rich, people care much less about material things, and always try to make the best out of any situation!

It’s this colorful mix of different cultures and influences, that make the city so unique. They’re brining in their identities and their ideas from back home – which ultimately shape a new identity of Berlin.
