Berlin has been my hometown for many years, and the streets of this vibrant metropolis are as familiar to me as my own four walls. As a certified guide since 2009, I have the privilege of sharing my knowledge of the history, multicultural diversity and socio-political developments of this city with travelers. For me, Berlin is not just a city, but a living history book that I would love to open for you. I will take you on a unique journey of discovery to the most exciting places in Berlin, where you will not only be amazed by the culture and history, but you will also be able to experience the best of cuisine. Because a city not only consists of its past and impressive real estate developments, but also of the diversity of aromas and flavors it has to offer.
