I am passionate about Berlin History, especially about the period during the Wall. I propose an original experience along the old No man's land to discover life in the East and West but also to understand the evolution and atmosphere of this city. Why is this capital so unique today and how did it happen? My anecdotes and knowledge are accompanied by archive photos that I am constantly looking for. We discover the history of many places, witnesses of the past, what they have become or what they will become. These are for example: old buildings, squats, factories, clubs, to new alternative places and lots of other surprises. I am very dynamic and smiling, my energy and my stories, will surely captivate you for 2h30. I love to meet new people and spend time with them, I know how to adapt to my audience. The tour ends in a friendly way over a drink, in an authentic place that hosts one of the best restaurants in Berlin. (By chance, lunch menus are discounted, we usually share lunch together depending on our different schedules). I will provide you with tips and lots of infos for the rest of your stay. I suggest you do this experience as soon as you arrive in Berlin because it will offer you a wide vision to optimize your stay.
I am from Paris, I know Berlin for 13 years and I live here for already 7 years now. I work as an alternative tour guide for 5 years and I have my own tours project for 2 years. I love to share Berlin's History and how the city evolved and it is always a pleasure to meet new people. I have a Design and Business background and I am also an artist myself. My profile is pretty unique which create a special energy during my tours. It is also a pleasure for me to share tips and good addresses about the city to improve your stay. See you soon!
We start in Friedrichshain at the end of the East Side Gallery, we follow some invisible paths of the Wall between Mitte and Kreuzberg, You will get an insight of the east and west atmospheres through the different old and modern buildings, their histories threw Berlin's evolution and gentrifications (squatted houses, old industries...) . I have specially many anecdotes about GDR time, West/ East Berlin that you for sure wouldn't get on your own
