This 45-min tour will provide the viewer with an introduction to this world famous UNESCO world heritage site! You will learn about the history and background of each building and when and why they were built. Join me on this tour which doesn't solely cover those meanwhile 6 museums that are commonly referred to when we speak of Museum Island - the Berlin Cathedral and the Zeughaus, the oldest building on Blvd Unter den Linden, will also be explained.
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 60 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!
While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your content creator and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Today we welcomed the rain in Berlin as it meant that you gave us yet another presentation from your flat. Remarkably, within an hour of deciding on this change from the published one you produced a totally new one showing, with the aid of videos taken earlier in the year, Museum Island. If this was a hurriedly assembled taster complicated by your worries over Lucas’s health, then what will the walking tour be like? I can’t wait! Thank you for an enthralling hour.

This was very interesting and informative. I love it when people are flexible in their approach to the vagaries of life. Thanks for taking the time to give us another great tour.
