For media partners and exhibitors

The CULTURE LOUNGE, the official cultural platform of the ITB Berlin offers a variety of cultural highlights. Around 70 exhibitors from eleven countries will be presenting their cultural highlights and offerings at the world's largest travel trade fair from 6 to 10 March 2019, including museums from all over Europe, festivals, major European joint projects and cultural service providers. The CULTURE LOUNGE was founded in 2008 by the projekt2508 Group and has developed into a permanent contact point for tour operators, journalists and important multipliers in the cultural travel segment and end consumers. Since 2015, culture at the ITB has been showcased in its own dedicated hall (Hall 16).

This year's cultural partner of the CULTURE LOUNGE is "VISITFLANDERS - Flemish Masters", which commemorates the 450th anniversary of the death of Pieter Bruegel and gives an outlook on the Van Eyck year 2020. Other exhibitors include VisitNorway, Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2019, Belgium Tourism Wallonia and the Malta Tourist Office. In addition, the Dom Museum Vienna, the Brucknerhaus Linz and the cultural city of Mons. The Bundeskunsthalle Bonn and the Beethoven-Haus Bonn will present the large special exhibition on the occasion of Ludwig van Beethoven's 250th birthday, as well the exhibitor European Federation of Napoleonic Cities. For the first time, North Rhine-Westphalia tourism invites to discover the KulturReiseLand NRW with its hidden treasures away from the urban centres. Top-class exhibition houses and museum associations such as the Museumsareal München, the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin or the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Kloster Lorsch as well as the Kunstmeile Hamburg are represented in the CULTURE LOUNGE.
