What you can expect
While Reichstag, East Side Gallery or Holocaust Memorial are very important to check out, there is so much more to visit in Berlin than that.
Join me on this tour and let's go off the beaten track and wander around various districts of Berlin such as Friedenau, Wilmersdorf, Kreuzkölln, Neukölln, and Kreuzberg.
Learn about the city’s cultural transformation and its stark and astounding contrasts, and get a deep, first-hand insight about local lifestyle.
On Tuesday and Friday, the tour also includes a trip to the Turkish Market, an outdoor bazaar on the banks of the beautiful Landwehr canal, that makes you think we're in Marrakech. If time and weather permits, you also have the option to stop for lunch at an extraordinary bakery with an original oven from the 19th century, a bakery which the New York Times dubbed "The Ferrari of bakeries".
In Spring and Summer (and from Thursday to Sunday), this tour also includes a side-trip to Berlin's famous Thai Meadow, the world's only large-scale Thai restaurant that takes place in a public park!
If there's a place that you would like to add on our itinerary, let me know. I can personalize this tour 100% just for you.
Join me to get to see what a typical visitor misses and really get the vibe of this vibrant city! Tschüss!
And hey, before I forget: Ce tour sera offert en Francais aussi, und ausserdam auch auf Deutsch! Just let me know which language you prefer! Je suis tri-lingue, donc, for me it makes no difference dans quelle langue je parle!

"... I love to show people that are new 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 make 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 tour 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", the site of what formerly was the hub of Berlin's Jewish Community, a wild Turkish market which really is as much Indian and African as it is Turkish. ...
