Leave the winter for the warm: a group is spending Christmas in Jordan and the first months of the year on the Arabian Peninsula.
During a three-month-stay in Islamabad a regular motor caravan is turned into a very special one: completely colour-painted with pictures from the history of Pakistan, animals and Perestroika tour destinations.
Despite many obstacles (unrest in Tibet, torch relay and Olympic Summer Games) a group goes to Beijing and back.
During the first Long Week there is a small celebration for the 10 year of Marco Polo besides the Mir-Club Meeting and the Workshops.
In the autumn the first workshop-week is taking place on the Schinderhannes campsite. The tour-guides and the Perestroika-Staff get you going in regards to GPS navigation, image-editing, computers and languages.
In the series “Hierzuland” in 2009, the house at Hauptstrasse 10 was presented at that time as the village restaurant “Birkheimer Hof”. In mid-February 2021, the Südwestfunk was back and the new episode is about the change in the place. In the 7-minute broadcast you will see a brief mention of our company.
On the trip "Picturesque Moldova" we visited a collective farm in Gargauzia. On the way there, employees of the local television station discovered us and so we were accompanied when visiting the vineyards. Travel participant Stefan Breder, who has vineyards in Oberwesel am Rhein, was able to shine with background knowledge.

While we looked at the year with good booking figures, unfortunately Vladimir Putin thwarted our plans in the last week of February. Because of the invasion of Ukraine, long-distance trips to Lake Baikal and Central Asia were be cancelled in February. Of course, we can't travel to Belarus or Russia in good conscience either. The early summer trips can not take place.
With the beginning of the year there is a small anniversary to celebrate. We have been a member of the DRV for 20 years, which is the German Travel Association, which represents the interests of the travel industry in Germany. All types of tour operators and travel service providers are represented among the several thousand members.
The DRV advises Mir Tours on questions of travel law, crisis management, legal requirements and more. It is also important to exchange ideas about trends and developments. Several times a year, employees take part in interesting training courses and workshops so that the services are delivered to customers professionally and fairly.
