About the tour

Take a tour and follow Martin as he takes you through Berlin's government district which is dotted with exciting, new architecture, but also some spectacular old buildings such as the legendary Brandenburg Gate, the Robert Koch Forum, or the Swiss Embassy. See the Chancellery, the building from which Angela Merkel works her magic, and get a good look at several exciting new parliamentary buildings. Find out about where the Wall divided East and West Berlin and discover some provocative contemporary art. The tour finishes at the deeply steeped in history Reichstag building.

Meet Martin


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 you were so excited at the beginning about the new exhibition about to be shown, and this exuberance carried on throughout your tour. It was very different even though the buildings had obviously not changed. It was what you talked about and how you delivered it that made this a tour that held my attention throughout. Now I am keen to see this different version with decent internet reception. Hospital seem to ration it but my bed companion …well the bed opposite…also enjoyed listening to you! The Bengalis didn’t understand a word though. Another language for you to learn to give tours in! Thank you for distracting me and for a well ordered tour.
