Starting in the beautifully landscaped park, join to explore the surrounds of the palace - that goes back to the late 17th century - and the buildings nearby, among them the Stüler Building, housing one of the world's largest collections of Picasso paintings. Find out why! Besides that, there is a small number of other museums, located in historic buildings, which all have their own stories to tell. This tour is a walk through another part of Charlottenburg that ties in with my other tour focussing on one of Berlin's prettiest neighbourhoods.
Berlin’s stunning landscape can stupefy you. Home to over 200 parks, forests and green spaces, and over a hundred lakes - replete with beautiful lidos and sandy beaches - it’s one of the greenest cities in the world. Martin helps you discover all this, and more! Having experienced the fall of The Wall first hand, Martin lived abroad between 1994 and 2010 and experienced a potpourri of different cultures. At university, he explored German history and studied German-Jewish exile organizations that emerged as a result of the rise to power by the Nazis. Following his graduation, he was then offered to contribute to the exhibition “Eichmann on Trial”, organized by Berlin’s Topography of Terror. This led Martin back to Berlin, and he re-discovered the city he had left long ago. Fascinated by Berlin’s total make-over, he decided to turn his rekindled fascination with Berlin into his profession. Since then, his tours have been peppered with adventures and exciting stories, ranging from European cultures to celebrities like Marlene Dietrich. “I once gate-crashed the building where David Bowie used to live in Berlin with a customer who was a huge David Bowie fan and ‘bumped’ into a resident who promptly invited us to have coffee!” he says.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Berlin with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.
The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your content creator directly from Berlin. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

Who else could produce a tour of this quality at such short notice? Yet another weather induced cancellation, so we did not expect anything, but were we wrong! Like a magician you conjured up a preview of Wednesday’s tour, and then kept pulling surprise after surprise out of the hat. An hour? You needed two hours and we needed even more to assimilate it all, although as usual you incorporated horribly somber bits. Your knowledge astounds us all so I am looking forward to seeing the polished version on Wednesday, although I do not see how you can have improved it. Martin the perfectionist will achieve this, I have no doubt. Thank you, a hundred times, for this amazingly well researched webinar.

Martin did a super job improvising when the weather didn't cooperate for the scheduled tour. It was a fabulous history lesson. Martin is the best

Martin gave an excellent review about the resistors, both groups and individuals, who helped save the Jews from Nazi Germany. He is very well educated, as well as sensitive about the subject. A great man he is.

Martin's tours and presentations or discussions NEVER fail to please! His depth of knowledge and his ability to communicate with lay people always provides food for though, while educating me. I am a fan and will always join Martin virtually until I'm able to join him for real in Berlin in the future! Thank you again, Martin.
