Are you looking for a personal guide, who can give you an idea of how Berlin used to look like and how it has become what it is today, and who can also lead you off the beaten track? I offer a variety of tours for groups and individuals. You can book me for as much time as you like for only 35 € per hour (+VAT for clients from Germany, minimum 1,5 h).
As a former landscape architect, I have been interested in the development of this great town for almost 30 years. I work with historic pictures and maps to inspire your imagination of the old Berlin. The details of each tour will be designed according to your interests (see proposals below)

May i propose the following tours
tour 1) The Heart of Berlin
On this tour you will see the main sights of the historical center, such as the government district with the Reichstag building (home of the German parliament), Brandenburg Gate, the Sony Centre, Unter den Linden (an alley that represents the old Prussia), Gendarmenmarkt (the most beautiful place in town), Nikolaiviertel (reconstruction of a part of ancient Berlin), Museumsinsel (one of the most important museum complexes in the world) and last but not least remnants of the Berlin wall. You´ll get an idea of how Berlin has become what it is today, and answers to questions such as "what did the old Berlin look like, where did Hitler kill himself, and where exactly was the wall?" .
tour 2) Along the Wall
By bike or by foot along the former course of the Berlin wall. Further details here
Tour 3) Spandauer Vorstadt
This part of the central district of "Mitte" is a well preserved example of the "old" Berlin (19th century and before). It includes the "Hackesche Höfe", the "Tacheles", the new synagogue and the former "Scheunenviertel" (barn quarter). Today lots of galleries, bars and fashion shops have established here. And it is again a centre of the Jewish community, as it was before the holocaust.
Tour 4) Prenzlauer Berg
North to the historic centre lies one of the largest and best preserved quarters from the period of promoterism (1871 - 1914) in Europe. The "Mauerpark" and "Kulturbrauerei" are main attractions. Home to the working class until the war, then badly neglected and discovered by opposing artists in the 1980s and the alternative scene in the 1990s, it has now become a home mainly to young families and entrepreneurs.
For large groups travelling by coach:
I also offer to enter your coach and accompany you through the whole center incl. the so called City-West.
