But being also a vast one - it is not that easy to navigate. With its string of world-class musuems, its iconic sights and its many architecturally and ethnically diverse
neighbourhoods, having a private guide in Berlin is essential.
... and I look forward to being yours!
... I will show you my hometown
I am Martin Sauter, German-born and raised, and I have experienced the fall of The Wall first hand. I have since lived in Paris, London, and Bath where I gained an MA and a PhD before returning to Berlin a few years ago.
I am very curious by nature, and no city could possibly be more of a challenge to the curious mind than Berlin as you seem to forever come across some new sights and buildings in the most unlikely and unexpected places. Berlin as a city is in constant flux, new museums are being built on a regular basis (right now, for instance, the Humboldt Forum or the Center for Flight, Deportation & Reconciliation, slated to open in 2019 and 2018, respectively) and existing ones get revamped.The most prominent example is the major overhaul of Berlin's most famous UNESCO world heritage site, the Museum Island. So enthralled by the city's continuous change was I upon my return from the UK, that I decided to turn my fascination with Berlin into my profession. And thus, BERLIN-TOURS was born.
