Here is a selection of our guides.
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.
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.
