ITINERARY

Your 4-hour private “off-the-beaten-track” Berlin tour will begin at Fehrbelliner Platz. Between Thursday and Sunday, the nearby park fills with countless Thai food stalls to sample, should you wish. Next stop? Berlin's oldest mosque, the Ahmadiyya Mosque. You will then take the beautiful subway line 3 to Rüdesheimer Platz, one of Berlin's prettiest squares before heading over to the trendy district of Kreuzkölln and admire the sumptuous Wrangel Fountain. After crossing the ever busy Admiral Bridge, you’ll reach Fränkel Quai, home to one of Berlin's nine synagogues. Walking along the riverbank, you'll soon reach Neukölln where on Tuesdays and Fridays a world-famous Turkish Market takes place. You can choose whether to stay and browse or continue onto a trendy café. All the monuments will be visited from the outside only.

I’m a true Berliner who lived in the city until the mid 90’s, before moving abroad (Paris, London, Bath, Birmingham and Lytham-St.-Anne’s). I came back in 2010 and have been working as a tour guide ever since. On my return, I had to rediscover the city as so much had changed. These constant transformations make Berlin a fascinating place to live and visit. My vision of Berlin takes you beyond the guide books to discover local life, traditions and culture. I’m a culture, architecture, art lover. Wherever I live or visit, I set out to discover its museums, monuments and hidden treasures. It isn’t all that surprising I ended working as a guide! I feel passionate about showing people around my city and revealing the stories behind the buildings. My hobbies? Old films (1920s, Nouvelle Vague, 1940’s Hollywood), long walks with my dog, the arts, history, architecture and photography.
