German native and Parisian by adoption, I have been enjoying the « City of light » with its endless cultural discoveries since the age of 18. After an initial Master’s degree in History from the Sorbonne, I completed a 5 year Master’s program in Art History at the Ecole du Louvre, a school within the famous museum, and have enjoyed working as a state licensed guide ever since. Leading family tours is definitely my preferred activity. I love the way kids look at art with fresh eyes. As a mother of three I came to understand how important it is to ensure that children have a fun and interactive museum experience. As a guide and art historian an equally essential part of my work is to provide the keys to « read » works of art and make the necessary connections between art and history, the past and the present. It’s important that children learn to observe, to think and to draw conclusions. My tours are designed to match these aims.

We had a wonderful time at Versaille with Beate! She was knowledgeable, friendly, and interesting. She kept our kids (7 and 9 y/o) interested and engaged through the entire tour... which was very impressive! We all learned a lot and had a wonderful time. She was also very flexible with meeting times and transportation situations. Thank you so much Beate for being a great guide and we would recommend her to anyone visiting Versaille!
