Airbnb guests come to Germany from around the world to experience bustling cities like Hamburg and Cologne, enjoy the peace and beauty of the north and the Baltic, and be at one with nature in the Bavarian mountains. Housing shortages in some parts of Germany present a complex problem, which existed long before Airbnb’s arrival. We aim to work with local governments to find solutions that help everyone benefit from home sharing. In Hamburg, fair and progressive regulations have been introduced to promote home sharing and innovation, allowing hosts to share their space with visitors looking to live like a local. Regulations like this allow German hosts to help travelers experience authentic German culture.
