CUSTOM TOURS

In a bid to keep this website user-friendly and to avoid overwhelming the visitor with a plethora of options, I have kept the selection of tours listed above fairly concise! Please feel more than welcome, though, to contact me with a request for a custom tour, and I will happily tailor you a walk focusing on the theme of your choice. If, for instance, you are researching family history, do let me know: it’s been an honour for me to assist many visitors who are tracing their genealogy and wishing to walk in relatives’ footsteps.

Other themes for custom tours in recent years have included: baroque Berlin, Berlin’s horticulture, Bauhaus architecture, the November 1918 revolution, Berlin’s cinema history, the history of theatre on the Kurfurstendamm, Islamic history in Berlin, Turkish-German history in the Kreuzberg neighbourhood, street art and squatting culture in Friedrichshain, the Bavarian Quarter of Schöneberg, Berlin’s abandoned spaces, civil disobedience during WWII, the Battle for Berlin, gentrification in Prenzlauer Berg, Schöneberg’s Akazienkiez, urban gardening, Berlin’s speakeasies, Kreuzberg’s Bergmannkiez, and various tours tracking movie and TV locations (including ‘Babylon Berlin’, ‘Valkyrie’, ‘Run, Lola, Run’, ‘The Lives of Others’ and ‘The Bourne Supremacy’). I look forward to receiving your request for a custom tour!
