About us
We want to inspire you to explore the world!

We are Backpacker Trail - a travel startup based in Heidelberg. During the pandemic, we built the largest backpacking community in the DACH region and quickly realized that planning is the biggest hurdle that keeps young people from traveling. So that's where we come in: On our platform, users can create their own itineraries as well as book tickets and accommodations at the current market price through our partners (Skyscanner,, Hostelworld, etc.). Travel content creators can publish their own itineraries, promote these to followers and earn booking commissions.

Our international team consists of more than 15 nationalities and shares one passion: backpacking. As part of the team, you don't work for us, but with us! Together we want to inspire, spark a sense of adventure and help people explore the world.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
