Based in Berlin and operating since 2008, eat-the-world is a tourism company offering culinary tours in Germany.[1] Walking food tours are offered in various cities throughout Germany with each tour featuring culinary samples from restaurants and delicatessen (German: Feinkostläden), in addition to specialized insight into each city’s history, culture, architecture, and entertainment.[2]

Company overview[edit]

eat-the-world offers cultural and culinary city tours which focus on a city's local history, culture, and cuisine, with the culinary samples telling the story of the district.[3][4] eat-the-world's founder Elke Freimuth says it is important to support small owner-managed businesses as opposed to chain-operated franchises, which is the driving concept behind the tours.[3][5] According to Katrin Buck, CEO of eat-the-world, "We offer participants an entertaining three-hour guided tour with seven culinary tastings. Together we explore the respective city's neighborhood while our culinary partners offer samples representative of the area."[6] eat-the-world has been a franchise company since 2010,[5] with the company's motto being "Get to know the area through its food and its people."[7] In 2017, the publishing house Gruner + Jahr purchased 100 percent of the company.[8]

Culinary city tours[edit]

As of 2016, eat-the-world offers tours in 26 cities throughout Germany with tours taking place in either English or German.[9][10] Tours typically last 3 hours and feature 7 culinary samples which are representative of the area's culture and history.[11][12][13] eat-the-world tours are described as being the most unusual type of city walking tour,[14] and rank on average in the Top 5 of the Food and Drink category on TripAdvisor.[15][16][17]

Awards & social commitment[edit]

eat-the-world was awarded the "Springboard 2009" prize in the 2009 Innovation Competition sponsored by the Verband Internet Reisevertrieb (VIR).[18] The company also won first place in the "Kreuzberg Handelt - Wirtschaften im Quartier" competition in 2010.[19]

eat-the-world has been an official sponsor of Slow Food since 2012.[20]
