Komoot breaks the 40 million mark for registered users

  • Komoot confirms its position as Europe's largest outdoor platform 
  • One in four adults in Germany has an account with komoot
  • International markets are experiencing explosive growth rates in user numbers 
  • Community-centered approach to product development pays off

Potsdam, Germany – June 19, 2024 – komoot's community continues its strong organic growth in international markets. The number of 40 million registered users marks an important milestone on the mission to make outdoor experiences accessible to everyone. 

Since its foundation in Germany in 2010, komoot has revolutionized outdoor navigation with numerous technical innovations that are consistently geared towards the needs of users. The platform offers an individual Route search, easy-to-use route planning, and turn-by-turn voice navigation.

The heart of the platform and the driving force behind the organic growth of the community are the Route suggestions based on komoot technology. This unique approach enables users to find outdoor experiences worldwide and discover nature responsibly. This is how it works: komoot's smart routing combines data from millions of recorded Tours and OpenStreetMap map data with local information from the community such as photos, tips, and Highlights. 

This approach pays off in the long term, as komoot's offering improves with every user. Komoot has grown organically in recent years and is inspiring increasing numbers of people to discover nature responsibly – whether on foot or by bike. "Our entire team is proud to inspire millions of people to experience nature and accompany them on their way into the great outdoors. We are happy about every user who explores their surroundings with us," says Tobias Hallermann, co-founder of komoot.

More than 140 people from 20 countries are working on making komoot even better and inspiring more people to explore the outdoors. The remote-first company continues to invest in relevant innovations and local collaborations with partners who share common values and goals.
