Outdooractive climbed the highest summit of the consumers and is, according to the persons responsible for the study DEUTSCHLAND TEST, a strong carabiner for consumers in the search for orientation.

  • 24,000 brands

Such a comprehensive study on preferred brands has never been done before in Germany.

The brand Outdooractive is the best in the market and also receives a top rating in the category technology.

With the distinction „Germany’s best portals, communities and search engines,” Outdooractive belongs to a select circle of the DEUTSCHLAND TEST. The distinction as “Germany’s Best” is the third of its kind in a row and thus a gratifying confirmation of the consistent focus on customers and users.
