Merchant Walks are a tradition within the Airbnb community worldwide. Hosts are often deeply rooted within their district and count many coffee shop and store owners among their friends. Hosts recommend their favorite gems to their guests. By doing so, they support local businesses that are owned and run by Berliners. Home sharers from Berlin-Neukölln organized a walk in their district, to visit local businesses like the Café Espera and the Kugu Nussrösterei. To show their support, they placed stickers in the windows of the businesses, so other guests and hosts can see that those places are recommended by the Airbnb-community.
