Home sharing in Berlin

Home sharers are Berliners, who rent out an extra room in their home or their entire home every now and then. For example, when they are on vacation or need to travel for work. An unclear law hinders Berliners from sharing their home freely. Together with decision-makers, Airbnb wants to establish fair and clear regulations for Home Sharing in Berlin.

Hosts share tips with their guests about their favorite gems in the area, for example where to get the best coffee or where to buy gifts from Berlin-based designers.
