My tours cover everything from the obvious Berlin Highlights such as the Reichstag Building, the Holocaust Memorial, or Museum Island, to those little known, tucked away gems which even most Berliners don’t know about.
My most popular tours:
- World War II and Cold War Tour [covers Checkpoint Charlie, the Topography of Terror, Potsdamer Platz, and leads along the former Wall trail straight to Brandenburg Gate]
- Royal & Imperial Berlin [Berlin under the well-nigh 500 year lasting rule of the Hohenzollern dynasty and includes the State Opera, Neue Wache, Gendarmenmarkt]
- Exploring Jewish Berlin [starts at famous Hackesche Höfe, visiting Otto Weidt’s Workshop for the Blind, where he hid Jews from deportation, the Barn Quarter, and ends at the New Synagogue]
