MitReisen: MitOst Comes to Your City!

MitReisen continues! After the first MitReisen trip to Georgia in the summer of 2013 and the last to Athens in Greece in autumn 2015, we have been on the lookout for exiting new travel destinations and dedicated hosts. Where should we go next?

You, the members of MitOst, call more than 500 cities in 40 different countries home. You’re the experts on your city and region and can show us places beyond the tourist traps and travel guides. You’re privy to interesting local initiatives and know their contact persons. You’ve experienced critical events in your region’s history firsthand and have brought your own ideas into action.

The goal of MitReisen is to share this experience with other MitOst members, friends, and partners. Become a host! Invite fellow members to your city or region, share your insider knowledge, and promote cultural exchange and networking!

Basic Requirements

The trip should…

  • last 5–7 days (with the possibility of an optional follow-up programme)
  • explore an interesting and thematically demanding topic pertinent to MitOst’s core issues
  • take place in the summer or autumn, but not be too close to the date of the annual MitOst-Festival

The programme should contain both a fixed itinerary and optional activities to allow for participants’ own discoveries and relaxation.

Your Role and Responsibilities

As a host, you are responsible for developing the programme and planning logistics. During the trip, you will also be the point-person for the local support of participants.

MitOst will gladly assist you in all stages of your planning, especially with programme development and communications with participants. A representative of MitOst will also travel with the group and help you during the trip.


The journey must be self-financed through the participation fees of the group members. Please submit a budget calculating the costs of accommodation, meals, entrance fees, local transportation, etc., and define the minimum and maximum number of participants. The participants will book their own travel to and from the destination.

As a host, you will receive a remuneration of 500 Euro after the successful completion of the trip.


There is no deadline for applications. Please submit your proposal (topic, programme outline), estimated budget, and a short CV to mitreisen(at)

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at mitreisen(at)

We look forward to reading your proposals and are excited to see to where the next MitReisen trip will take us.
