Who are the members of the BVGD?

The members of the Association are local and regional tourist guide associations from all over Germany. Overall, the BVGD represents approximately 6,500 colleagues in more than 220 cities and regions.

All have received basic training, every fifth holds a BVGD-training certificate or a certificate in accordance with European Quality Standard for tour guides (DIN EN 15556).
