What you can expect

Join me on a unique metro station tour where we'll ride the subway with open eyes. We'll consciously admire and observe beautiful public spaces. We'll pass diverse architectural sights: from old to new, from modern to post-modern. Believe me when I say that every stop has a local story to tell!

Berlin is packed with eye-catching underground hubs and I'll show you the most interesting ones!

We'll start the tour at Nollendorf Platz which is known for its Metropol Theatre, gay village and a memorial to the Murdered gays & sesbians.

We'll then board subway line Nr. 3, known as Berlin's oldest, opened in 1910.

Wittenberg Platz is our next stop where we'll check out Berlin's first Concentration Camp Memorial. On our way to Hohenzollern Platz, we'll first stop at the Food Halls at KaDeWe, where it's optional to grab a coffee.

Our next stops are all about breathtaking photographs and flamboyant 1970s designs. I'll show you the Ahmadiyya Mosque, and a string of Nazi-era buildings. Heidelberger Platz will take your breath away with its cathedral-like station and fabulous mosaics.

We'll then ride to the RĂŒdesheimer Platz, an immensely beautiful station with lots of elaborate detail and references to the wine-growing region.

We'll get off to explore one of Berlin's prettiest squares with its fabulous turn-of-century, Tudor-style, buildings, and catch a glimpse of the impressive Siegfried Fountain.

Our last stop will leave us wandering along one of Berlin's grandest avenue: Podbielski Allee, set in one of its wealthiest neighborhoods, lined with embassies and international schools, followed by a leisurely stroll to the Royal Garden Academy.

The tour concludes with a coffee and cake in the spectacular cafe set in a greenhouse.

I am a professional, qualified and certified tour guide and have made it my mission to show visitors to Berlin sights, sites, and places which they may otherwise miss since Berlin, in my opinion, is the most misunderstood city in the world. I've been working as a tour-guide ever since I returned from having lived abroad for close to 16 years. Following my return, I had to rediscover this city as so much of it had changed. The constant changes Berlin undergoes makes it a fascinating place to visit. But it is exactly that which makes it a challenge to the casual tourist, not to mention tour operators and travel book publishers as they have to edit their Berlin edition every couple of years, with new museums, sights, and monuments being built on a constant basis!

The tours I offer will take you around Berlin - by underground - in just under four hours, introducing you to the many faces and facets you never knew Berlin had, including Germany's oldest mosque, a pretty little square which the New York Times called "one of Europe's prettiest", one of Europe's most beautiful subway lines (and stations!), a former bunker that's been turned into luxury apartments, a wild Turkish market which really is as much Indian and African as it is Turkish. ... ... Curious? Join me!"
