I was born in communist East-Berlin and when the wall came down I was a teenager. The revolution of 1989 I saw on the streets of Berlin. Soon I used my newly gained freedom and traveled extensively.

During the 1990th I studied history and music at Humboldt University Berlin and I now hold a M.A. in both subjects.Beside my activities as a tour guide I am writing for several papers as a freelance journalist. For enjoyment only I play the piano in several bands.

For all those reasons I am more than familiar with culture and history of Berlin. I like sharing my passion for my city with travelers from allover the world. I like meeting the world here in Berlin and often the conversations are an enrichment for me. And I hope they might be interesting for you too.

I was born in East Berlin at the time of the German division. My father was a natural storyteller who told history through the guise of tales. Growing up, I experienced many changes in Berlin: the fall of the Berlin Wall, the city's "growing pains " during the 1990s, and the dizzying boom in recent years.

In Berlin every street seems to be loaded with history, stored in the many layers that come to light only to vanish just as quickly. I soon learned the value of storytelling: this makes even the most mundane places to come to life. I decided to study history and German literature at Berlin's Humboldt University, with the goal of working in the field of public history. Now that I'm working on my PhD, I enjoy telling travelers stories about my great hometown.

I lived in West Berlin until I was ten. After the end of Cold War, as a teenager I experienced the rapid and radical changes that took place in Berlin in the 1990s. Berlin’s charged history obviously attracts more and more people worldwide. Or is the attraction due to the straightforward and charming way Berliners meet strangers?

As an archaeologist at work on a PhD, I have a good eye for the material manifestations of the past – be it pictures, documents, or architecture. What fascinates me most is how stories are connected to these objects, and how objects can receive new meanings. I have a strong interest in the everyday lives of ordinary people and I enjoy giving guests an idea about what life is like in Berlin – both today and in the not too distant past.

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, in 1948, I grew up in Bonn and Berlin and also spent a year in the United States. I studied history and English at the Stockholm University and TU Berlin, earning a German M.A. in history and English. After studying history with a focus on Germany in the first half of the twentieth century, I was always interested in Berlin, the city where most of the important political decisions were made. As a resident of West Berlin, however, I did not easily get to see the East - so once the infamous Berlin Wall finally fell, I immediately set out to freely explore “the other half” of the city...Five years ago, I decided to make more out of my hobby, and began working as a Berlin guide. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made, as it is an extremely enjoyable job – I just love sharing all those interesting facts and stories about my favourite city with visitors from all over the world.”
