Overview
More
Our cultural-historical tours, led by long-term residents, take the form of informal but informed strolls that draw on history, literature, architecture and other cultural phenomena. We aim to provide unique and personalised insights into the city’s past and present that appeal to both locals and visitors alike. We usually limit numbers to six people in order to encourage maximum interaction and minimum interruption to the neighbourhoods that we operate in, and keep the price deliberately affordable to encourage a broad range of participants. Our tours and workshops have been mentioned in various German and international publications, from Easyjet Magazine and the Rough Guide to Berlin, to b.There Magazine, In Your Pocket, Flux FM, The Observer, Sydney Morning Herald, Tagesspiegel and more. We also offer tours for private groups and can arrange tailored itineraries.

Paul is a fantastic teacher. Explains stuff with a great sense: going into details when needed, skipping stuff, which is not needed at the moment. He got my attention from very first minutes when we took cameras in our hands and played with settings, through...More

Even though we live in Berlin and often pass through Alexanderplatz, everything we saw during this tour was new for us! A friendly and well-prepared guide answered our questions and was flexible enough to accommodate the needs of two couples with toddlers :-) Highly recommended...More

Mark is an excellent guide, knowledgable of both past, present and his chosen subject(s). His knowledge of the recent history of the reunification of Germany and how it was presented by filmmakers is particularly good. I really enjoyed this walk.

than Prenzlauer Berg. The artists and non-conformists
that defined the district’s intriguing subculture in
the 1980s and 90s have been replaced by a young, hip
crowd that frequents the many cafes. Where there were
once run-down houses in the shadow of the Berlin Wall,
there are now designer shops. Beautiful old homes have
been modernized and renovated, and on Sundays,
