As additional service we would like to offer our guests an one-day guided tour of Berlin in German or English. It can be either a general presentation of the German capital with its most important highlights or a circumscribed tour by themes, for instance the traces of the holocaust in the town, the construction of the wall and its fall, Berlin as cultural centre and so on. It's on you to determine the theme of such a spesialisation. In this case it would be necessary to inform us at least three weeks before your arrival so that our guides have the time to make the necessary dispositions. If you are interested in such offer we would like to inform you about the price of such guided tours.
In Berlin we have a tourist tax of 5 %.

I work actually as an author for historical documentary films. My interest is valid for painting, politics, history, biology and aviation. I am close-knit since the my studies with the history of Berlin and I would like to give an understanding of this also to my guests. Berlin is an inspiring place. Until 1989 you had to pass the Iron Curtain if you wanted to visit the two halfs of Berlin. After the breackdown of the wall Berlin re-experienced a reincarnation. Creative people from all over the world came to this place and enriched its cultural charisma, also by painting the last pieces of the Berlin wall. But Berlin was also in the centre of two World wars and of the Holocaust. The traces of these historical events of the mankind shaped the character of the town in many ways. Berlin was also a front town during the Cold war. American and Soviet tanks were stationed in the two parts of the now German capital and ready to fight the Third world war. Last but not least Berlin is a world-known cultural centre with famous museums and art galeries. Prominent castles, well known museums, world-famous theaters, historical places, old churches and other buildings belong to these highlights like in other European capitals. But many attractions of Berlin are situated in the neighborhood and not in the town itself. Some of the German kings and emperors erected important palaces outside of the capital because they didn' t like the old buildings of their fathers and grandfathers or they had other reasons. At the end of the Second World War most of Berlin was destructed. The victorious Allied Powers needed locations outside of Berlin to discuss and decide the further destinity of Germany. So they went to Potsdam. Last but not least the Berlin wall did not only devide the two parts of Berlin but it also surrounded and confined West-Berlin. Famous "holes in the wall" like the Glienicke Bridge are today part of this neighborhood.
