The Berliner Kurier is a regional, daily tabloid published by the Berliner Verlag GmbH for the Berlin metropolitan area in Germany. The paper was owned by M. DuMont Schauberg.[1] and got sold in September 2019 to Holger Friedrichs.

In January 2015, following the Charlie Hebdo shooting in which the staff of a French satirical magazine were attacked after previously drawing the Islamic prophet Muhammad, the front page of the Berliner Kurier was a cartoon of Muhammad reading Charlie Hebdo in a bath of blood.[2]

During the first quarter of 2010 Berliner Kurier had a circulation of 120,353 copies.[3]
