What you'll do

Walking down the cosy turn-of-the-century streets of Schöneberg, we will explore the crazy spirit of 1920s Berlin with its unprecedented sexual freedom, wild nightlife, cutting-edge avant-garde cinema, decadent cabarets and bold political satire... In the Roaring Twenties, Berlin became a symbol of daring art, leisure and crime. I will tell you about the first-ever film that featured a homosexual love story, and about Germany's pioneer of gay rights movement. I will show you where one of Hollywood's most iconic filmmakers used to live and will tell you about the scandalous diva of the Roaring Twenties, known as Goddess of Night and Priestess of Debauchery. After our stroll, we will go to my place for a tea party: I will treat you with some homemade treats, show you trailers of movies, created/set in Berlin, and tell you a very special story about a Jewish boy who once lived in the house where I live now, accidentally met Hitler, escaped the Holocaust and was my pen-pal for a couple of years before passing away.

Throughout the years that I've been living in Berlin, I have been exploring the history and the unique spirit of this multifaceted, frenzied, and incredible city. I have discovered so many amazing stories, that at some point I realized I want to share them with people. Working in PR and culture news journalism, I mastered the art of storytelling. Now, tour-guiding gives me a great opportunity to put these skills into practice. Apart from showing visitors Berlin's hidden gems, I do translations, organize cultural events for kids and grownups, do yoga, and raise my two awesome sons.
