Hotels, Hospitality and Tourism

Dear restaurant experts, hotel professionals, chefs, receptionists, travel agents, bar and service staff, skilled workers in the food service industry and customer service professionals: with almost 3.5 million inhabitants and 500,000 guests daily, local demand for services in Berlin's hospitality, hotel and tourism sectors is second to none in Germany.

Tourism is booming in Berlin – the capital is Germany's Number 1 urban destination and Europe's Number 3 city destination behind London and Paris. More than eleven million visitors each year total more than 28.5 million overnight stays in Berlin hotels, inns, hostels and apartments/houses – all places where you can start your job hunt. However, the large amount of tourism in the capital also means jobs for bus drivers, bicycle taxi drivers and city guides. Native speakers are primarily sought after as urban tour guides – a great job opportunity for newcomers from other countries. Potential employers are also Berlin's monuments and museums, which are open daily for tourists in the city.

Berlin tourism also works in the other direction, since the Berliners are very fond of traveling. Approximately 1,500 travel agencies and 500 tour operators send the capital city on vacation every year. Not to mention the online travel industry, which is also at home here. The booking platform Booking.com, for example, is one of the capital's largest employers and provides, like Egencia (an expert on business travel), great job opportunities for travel agents.

Already 1.7 million employees are working in more than 5,000 Berlin restaurants, cafés, bars and catering companies. The 1,500 conferences, congresses, meetings and other events that take place daily in Berlin also need skilled service and kitchen staff. From fine dining to fast food restaurants, and all the way to the canteens in the capital – Berlin offers a variety of jobs for hospitality professionals.

The salary always depends on your experience and the respective company – the differences are great especially in this industry. On average, a cook earns between 20,000 and 50,000 euros gross per year, a desk/reception shift supervisor from 35,000 euros gross upwards, a restaurant employee from 20,000 euros gross upwards per year – plus weekend and night rates and gratuities. A travel agent earns € 25,000 gross upwards per year. Start your job search! It's worth it.
