Join me and Lucas as we're strolling through our lovely, quaint, leafy, neighbourhood, at dusk ... experience beautiful art-deco complexes, a myriad of beautiful restored period buildings, plus a street which is like walking down German history, as everyone from Goering, over Marlene Dietrich's mother, to West-Germany's first president used to live on it at some point! Additionally, there's a recently restored and converted new objectivity structure from 1929 and one street dotted with stumbling stones ... It'll be like so many walks in Berlin - history that follows you around wherever you step, but on top of that - there's that touch of beauty that makes it more palatable! Please note, that on every tour we'll be using a slightly different route, in order to give as much of an insight into this neighbourhood, which was the home of so many writers, artists, but also resistance fighters! So frequent viewings are not just recommended, but encouraged!
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.
Martin has been guiding since May 2011
