Italian Kiss | VAPIANO


VAPIANO sets new Italian Kiss Guinness 2023 World Record in Berlin with 463 couples

463 couples, including some very famous faces, kissed the Italian way on International Kissing Day (6 July 2023) and brought the Italian Kiss world record back to Vapiano. 

Taking inspiration from The Lady and the Tramp, 463 couples took part in a world record attempt of a special kind.

Over 1000 guests joined us  in Hangar 4 at the iconic venue of the former Tempelhof Airport,  having a maximum of 30 seconds to complete a successful attempt.

The world record challenge was also attended by many celebrities such as musician Mike Singer and his girlfriend Sophie Marstatt.

The common goal this evening: to beat the Italian Kiss GUINNESS WORLD RECORD, which was set last year by 433 couples in Belgium. After the original record was held by Vapiano in France since 2020, this year, Vapiano wanted to take back the crown in Germany where it all began. Under observation of the official GUINNESS WORLD RECORD jury, led by Seyda Subasi-Gemici, the existing record was broken.

“It’s great that we were able to bring the world record back to Vapiano with the support of our fantastic guests – that makes us very proud. It’s almost even nicer that we were able to celebrate love, good food and the Italian joy of life together with so many people on International Kissing Day. After challenging times, this day is a special highlight for Vapiano,” said Vikki O’Neill, Global Marketing Director.
