On this tour, Martin takes you through what is known as Berlin's Jewish Neighbourhood, where literally every building has a story to tell. You'll get to see Berlin's oldest Jewish cemetery, a Jewish Boys' School that goes back to the 18th century, as well as a Jewish Girls' School which has since been converted into one of Berlin's swankiest restaurants. The tour concludes at the beautiful, world-famous New Synagogue from 1866.
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.

Extremely informative…would I expect or want anything more? On any tour by you though we get everything: humour, amazing enthusiasm, a variety of buildings, each with their own history to tell, your opinions, even about the best place to buy a chocolate brownie, very important for me! But it was your explanation of why you are compelled to do these traumatic tours which really upset me. Your all encompassing tour of this Jewish neighbourhood began calmly enough until you decided that it was time that we knew the real story. Looking at your anguished face I could see what a painful and terrible subject you needed to inform the world about as people must be better educated about this topic. Even after repeat viewings your words still have the ability to hurt me badly. If you can never get used to this history then what chance do we have? Thank you, Martin, for yet another beautifully presented and well paced tour.
