Travel information

A good preparation will help you to better understand the country and the people you visit – you will thus have more enriching experiences.

  • The more you know about the destination, the less likely you are to hurt the feelings of locals.

  • Start the journey in your head! You can find information in guidebooks, specialised literature and documentaries on the radio, on television and on the Internet. Find links on www.tourism-watch.de/en, www.fairunterwegs.org and www.nf-int.org.

  • Good guidebooks don't only describe tourist destinations and sights, but also people and their everyday lives. You should also acquaint yourself with the current political situation, environmental issues and human rights. Local non-governmental organisations and international organisations often provide information on your destination in English.

  • You will get better insight into the lives and thoughts of people in different parts of the world by reading contemporary literature.

  • Talk to people who know the country you are going to – for example people who come from these countries and live and work among us now.
