Hi is there a way that i can export a list of pois in a region i choose with all data available for the pois, like address, opening times, homepage and so on? best output would be xml or so.

i tried to understand the overpass api but didn't get it and i think that's not what i am searching for, right?

would be great if you can help me. thanks

The Overpass API is perfectly fine for your problem. Just use overpass turbo, go to the area you are interested in, and choose Load -> Examples -> Map Call via the menu. This query will return all data in your current view. After hitting Run you can Export it in several different formats, including XML.

The data returned will probably contain more information than you are interested in so you will have to do some post-filtering.

Try starting with osmconvert by downloading raw OSM data, perhabs do filtering and cropping with osmfilter or osmosis, and convert the result file to a CSV file with osmconvert.
