2. Meetup

Almost everyone has dating apps like Tinder or Lovoo nowadays on their mobile phones. But if you are not looking for a relationship - or a bed story - come with me Meetup maybe an alternative for you.

What's the matter? The description of the app states that the aim is to bring people together who have the same interests. Sounds good - especially if you want to join a group of people. Unfortunately, creating an event yourself costs money. Otherwise there are leisure activities from wellness to day trips into nature.

3. Couchsurfing hangouts

Yes, Couchsurfing is actually an app with which you can find a place to sleep in another city - or offer one. BUT: Within the normal Couchsurfing app there is a very practical function with which you can easily meet people: the category Hangout.

What's the matter? Similar to the Meetup app, it's about finding cool people who want to do the same things as you do. From hiking to drinking a coffee, everything is there. The advantage: Here you can also create your own events for free. On the other hand, the ads that are in the app are stupid. Another annoying thing about the app is that you are constantly offered the paid version.
