Within a project of FiPP e.V. called „Ich bin ein Berliner“ the qualification concept „Practical Learning in City Tourism“ has been developed. Linking the acquirement of vocational key skills to cross-cultural learning, this innovative educational concept has been developed especially for students.

The concept is realized in project courses which are implemented into the regular subject based courses. In doing so the young people acquire human, technical and vocational skills requested both in city tourism and professional careers in general.

In co-operation wit FIPP e.V., we - the city guides of Wir sind Berlin gUG - will continue to contribute to such projects by sharing our experiences in the development and acquisition of city tours.

One of the distinctive features of the project „Practical Learning in City Tourism“ is that in the learning process byproducts are created which are of use for the Berlin visitor: namely city tours with a huge amount of information on interesting Berlin sites.
