Welcome to Berlin, I'm Arja and I have been a full-time tour guide for 14 years now.
Berlin is my playground as a studied historian, culture enthusiast and big city aficionada, and I am looking forward to sharing the stories of this great city with you. No matter if you are in Berlin for the first time and want to see all the most important sites or if you have been here before and are looking for stories and places off the beaten path, I will take you anywhere you want to go, because even the most remote corners of Berlin have a story to tell.
With my granddad and mum being from former Eastern Berlin I feel a strong connection to Berlin even though I grew up in a small town in Western Germany. But as I was always drawn to the bigger places I first left for university in Hamburg where I got my M. A. in History and American literature, then for a year away in New Zealand and then to work as a tour guide all over Europe showing young people the most exciting places of this continent. Berlin was a natural choice for me continuing the family story in this city which was interrupted by the Stasi, the wall and the separation of Germany in 1954.
I am looking forward to showing you this amazingly intruiging city in the virtual world and maybe one day in person. And of course Lulu is always on my and your tail...
