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 tourguide in Berlin is essential.
... and I look forward to being yours!
Martin Sauter, German-born and raised, and I have experienced the fall of The Wall first hand. I have since lived in France and in the UK for 16 years where I gained an MA and a PhD in Film Studies before returning to Berlin a few years ago. I am fluent in 3 languages - English, French and, of course, German.
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.

BERLIN-TOURS ... offers guided walking tours in three languages (English, Francais, Deutsch) tailored to your needs!
I offer a wide range of tours (see tabs below), focusing on German History as well as on an alternative, different, side of Berlin, one which tourists neither suspect exists nor usually get to see. For instance, the frequently booked 'Berlin History Tour' takes you through the tumultuous history of Germany - and of course Berlin - over the past 250 years while 'The Hidden Treasures of Friedenau' - which can also be done by bike - shows you another,wholly different side of the city as this quaint and leafy neighbourhood has traditionally been the home of scholars, artists, writers, such as Nobel Laureates Günter Grass and Herta Müller.
But I also offer custom-made walking tours. In other words: You tell me what you are interested in, what you want to focus on, and how much time you have, and I will plan a tour bound to make your stay in Berlin unique and unforgettable!
If requested, I will collect you at your hotel and we start our tour from there. Alternatively, I can also arrange for a car.
