We Greeter want to welcome visitors to our city as our guests - just as we do with friends and acquaintances who visit us.
As a greeter you come into contact with many interesting people from different cities, countries and continents and we see this as an additional opportunity to volunteer for our city. You have the opportunity to use and also expand your language skills. In addition, new friendships can develop and a mutual cultural exchange takes place.
You are interested in meeting people from other cities, countries and continents?

Tasks of a Greeter
A greeter leads groups of 1 to 6 people and makes sure that the guests feel welcomed and well looked after. He lets them become part of this city, no matter what the weather is like. He makes sure that the guests get a unique and very personal view of the city.
During this walk he will show you his district, his favourite places, his weekly market, special shops, historical buildings and everything else that makes Wuppertal so special to him. He may also report on things that are not necessarily mentioned in the usual travel guides. He informs and helps with questions, e.g.: how do I use the public transport, which ticket do I have to buy, where is the next possibility to buy food...
