“Born shortly before the Wall was erected, I grew up in the divided Berlin. As a contemporary witness, let me take you through the past, the present and the future of this our vibrant German capital. I look forward to showing you my Berlin, on and off the beaten tracks.”

A true and genuine Berliner, I was born three months before the Wall was erected. One part of my family lived in West-Berlin, the other part in the cordoned off eastern part of the city.


Shortly after the fall of the Wall I started working as a personal guide to people from all over the globe, introducing them Berlin, Potsdam and Dresden. As a private chauffeur I was, in the past 25 years, privileged to count among my guests many high-ranking individuals from the world of business, politics and the arts and entertainment.


I strive to turn our tour into a unique experience. When the tour ends and I drop you off at your hotel, not only will you have learned a great deal about the city, you will also feel you have been wonderfully entertained.


Because an image says more than a thousand words, I always carry my iPad, packed with pictures and videos of Berlin’s extraordinary past.
