What you can expect

From former breweries that are now cultural centers to gentrification and Jewish heritage, Prenzlauer Berg is a fascinating neighborhood. Stroll the streets with me to get all the insights about the history, as well as the current life of people here.

immerse yourself in the historic Prenzlauer Berg and meet me at Senefelder Platz. Discover places like hubs of Nazi resistance like Zionskirche, to the graves of famous Jews like Max Liebermann. I'll take you through Prenzlauer Berg's most important sights, but with a local touch!

Ever wondered how it is to live in a water tower? I'll show you how is that possible at the Wasserturm, a water tank from 1852, which has been converted into apartments. And that's not the only repurposed building in the area - Pfefferberg and Kulturbrauerei are two former breweries now turned into cultural centers, housing events, street food markets and even a cinema!

Speaking of beer, Prenzlauer Berg is also home to the oldest beer garden in Berlin - step into this huge green terrace and enjoy a pint of cold local beer. On the way, I'll show you famous works of art like the sculpture of KĂ€the Kollwitz in Kollwitzplatz, the contrasts of Kollwitzstrasse, and Oderberger Hotel, now a luxury hotel that used to be a public bathhouse.

Everything sound pretty interesting, right? Make it even better with a fully customizable tour! I can customize the tour for you and help you discover the best stories in Prenzlauer Berg.

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!"
