HELFEN.BERLIN: ONLINE VOUCHERS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR FAVORITE PLACES

HELFEN.BERLIN: ONLINE VOUCHERS FOR SUPPORTING YOUR FAVORITE PLACES

With many of us staying at home, bars, restaurants, shops and cafés are facing a significant loss of income, threatening the existence of the very places that make Berlin unique. While there’s no easy solution, luckily one initiative is trying to help out: the Helfen.Berlin voucher shop. Through their site, you can buy vouchers of between €10 and 100€ and in doing so help these small businesses cover their fixed costs. Then once we are allowed out again you can use your voucher to enjoy a nice moment with friends. The site features more than 900 locations, including many we know and love, like cinema Il Kino, where you can watch art house films before reviewing them with friends at the cocktail bar afterwards. The vegan, sustainable restaurant Frea is also a wonderful place to meet your pals, while at Konk you will find plenty of presents for upcoming birthdays from small Berlin labels. Finally, why not buy a round ahead of time with a voucher for Flaschenzug Bar, which serves dignified drinks in a welcoming atmosphere. This initiative not only shows solidarity but is a great way to start looking forward to meeting your friends again. And if you want to get your non-Berlin people involved, #supportyourlocal is taking the same idea all over Germany.
