Local Specials

You will find what you are looking for at Tripendy if you want to experience something different. Well-known tourist attractions can be found via a great variety of channels. Tripendy stands for the ”specials”, the eclectic addresses and people. Enjoy the Tripendy Experience!

For Whom (I)?: Everybody; experts, culture-lovers, tourists, students, housewives, families...

We are developing Tripendy to satisfy the curiosity of everyone with an interest in culture, creativity, arts, craftsmanship, etc. Each person can use our website in order to find the specialties he or she is looking for:

  • Are you looking for an antiques dealer, a modern art gallery, an artist, a restoration workshop, a special item, anything regarding music, service or event?
  • Are you visiting a location and do you want to explore local "hidden pearls"?
  • Do you want to escape from your daily routines and improve the quality of your life with art & culture.
  • Or simply, you need a special address for a specific craftsman or special item.

We all have in common that we want to find what we are looking for, in a facilitated way. That isn’t always easy; you might sometimes feel lost in the jungle of information. Tripendy wants to bridge that gap.

For Whom (II)?: Cultural-entrepreneurs, Professionals, Amateurs...

Are you a gallery-holder, an antiques-dealer, an artist, an auction house, young talent, a craftsman, a restorer, a musician, music ensemble or any other type of cultural-entrepreneur?

Thanks to new technologies, cultural-entrepreneurs can reach out today all over the globe. With over 500 mio. people in Europe and 15 times more outside the European continent, there are enormous opportunities.

The European Cultural & Creative Sector is abundant and immensely diverse, which makes Europe a unique attraction on which we can be proud.

However, in spite of this abundance of information there is a lack of transparency, visibility and accessibility. On top, publicity costs are often high. Consequently, with our Tripendy-Platform we fill this gap by making the Cultural & Creative Sector more visible and accessible at reasonable costs, even partly for free.

Are you interested in reaching further out to the world with your gallery, workshop, museum, artistic creations, musical performances, handcraft items, or other cultural & creative activities?
