What you can expect

Join me on this tour for a better understanding of Berlin's Jewish community - past and present. Discover several Jewish places and sights in Berlin starting at the old Jewish cemetery where also a few famous Jewish people are buried, continuing to places of worship - the Synagogues - from the ones that are still standing and the ones that are missing.

Along the way, I will show you a place where German women fought for their Jewish husbands to be released and a historical place where love won. Also, you will see the street where the oldest Jewish cemetery once stood. And through amazing storytelling, I'll help you take a look at the past to understand more vividly these impactful historical facts.

Ready for a break? We can include, on a personalized offer, a pit-stop at the local Jewish Cafe Beth and try some kosher snacks.
To keep the journey going, you'll visit the 'Transports to Life and Death Sculpture' where I'll tell you stories about the children who were victims of the Nazi regime and the ones who were saved.

Have you heard about the Memorial Fashion Centre at Hausvogteiplatz? You'll hear the whole story at this monument where once Germany's high fashion stores owned by Jews dominated the area and were destroyed by the Nazis. This experience would not be complete without an insightful visit to the Holocaust memorial.

Take a look at the past and see how the present has molded from this history and how the locals paid respect through its memorials and preservation of historical sights.

If there is any other place or stop that you want to include, please let me know! I can personalize this tour 100% for you. See you soon in Berlin :)

I am a man of many professions that has been living in and loving Berlin for the past 14 years.
I have travelled all over the world and was often a tour-guide for either my business customers or friends.
Since my grandfather was a prisoner in Dachau concentration camp that part of history is of a special interest for me.
Besides the Berlin essentials I would also like to show special places and things that tourists do not see on a regular tour, take you to special little restaurants that are known to locals only.
I would like to invite you to join me on my tour of this extraordinary and special city."
