We bring Berlin to a boil
Wir sind Feinschmecker, Weintrinker, Berlinliebhaber, Unternehmer. Uns verbindet die Vision, ein Feinschmeckerfestival in Berlin zu etablieren, das zu dieser Stadt passt. Wir sind kein Tourismusverband, keine Gaststätten- und Hotelinnung. Hinter uns steckt kein Großkonzern, keine politische Lobby. Das macht uns frei, das eat! berlin Feinschmeckerfestival so umzusetzen, wie wir uns das für Berlin schon immer gewünscht haben.
The creators of eat! berlin are:
