What you can expect

Come with me on a relaxing walk through the historical part of Berlin. I will pick you up at the place of your choice and we will start the tour at Brandenburg Gate.

On this personal and private tour, I will share stories about the GDR and its secret police -The Stasi. See the Reichstag and Checkpoint Charlie, a former border crossing between East and West Berlin. We will proceed past other Berlin landmarks and also walk through the Holocaust Memorial.

The tour will end at the museum Island with its beautiful Pleasure Garden, or as locals call it "Lustgarten".

If you want to hear personal and touching stories about the life in the GDR and the events that led to the reunification, then look no further! I'm your to-go guide. If you have specific historical interest just let me know, I will happily personalize this tour for you!

East-West Berliner

11 reviews

I'm originally from Hamburg, a metropolitan north of Germany. Part of my family is from Dresden, in East Germany. Like Berlin, Dresden was also heavily destroyed by bombing during the second World War. This poor but sexy city has been my home for the past 6 years and on my tours I enjoy sharing interesting facts, unique stories and fun moments.
Let's discover Berlin together!"
