About the Greeters

Hamburg Icons

Greeters welcome guests and take them on a free and very individual „Greet“ through their city.

The Greeter concept was created in 1992 by American Lynn Brooks in New York under the name „Big Apple Greeters“. Meanwhile it is finding more and more friends – Greeters as well as guests…

Since Spring 2012 Greeters are active in Hamburg: During our „Greets“ curious guests meet friendly Hamburgers.

In Germany and around the world the Greeter idea has found many friends:
