About me

Dear visitor to the Berlin / Potsdam region!

My name is Arvid, I am in the 3rd generation a native - and therefore 'real' - Berliner. Very few guides who offer tours in Berlin can throw that into the balance for themselves! But that makes the difference! I EXPERIENCED and FEELED division and reunification. Feelings and feelings cannot be read or taken from books ... I have heard firsthand stories about the time of the Airlift or the bombing raids on Berlin at family celebrations - as long as I can remember. That's why my tours are true and original. I would like to show you and explain the interesting and preferably also the less known sights of the city and region.

Are you here for the first time and would you like an overview from 'Alex' to Ku-Damm? True Berliner ™

On an individual tour you will get to know the most famous highlights of the city. If desired, the journey can be interrupted in many places by guided tours on foot and also include Potsdam.

Have you been to town many times and still want to discover something new? True Berliner ™

Whether a theme tour for the III. Reich, a boat trip on the Wannsee or a visit to the grave of Harald Juhnke - I know the city like the back of my hand and take you to worthwhile places that some residents have never seen.

All my ancestors and myself have been born in Berlin since 1905. I was an "island child" and, for example, personally present when the Wall fell at the Brandenburg Gate. Numerous family stories, which flow into my stories when the opportunity arises, go back to the time of Kaiser Wilhelm II. This makes my explanations particularly real and understandable.

I was an animator in other European countries for seven years and later also gained stage experience in Germany. I was on stage with Mario Barth and had contact with Eckhardt von Hirschhausen, Kurt Krömer and others. Now I have returned to the stage as a city guide and am once again providing entertainment for my guests. Because I see that as the primary goal: the customers should feel good and be satisfied!

Guests repeatedly praise my clear pronunciation, the complex knowledge of German, Prussian and Berlin history, my particularly good foreign language skills in English, as well as the competent and entertaining organization of all my tours.

I would be delighted if you could see for yourself!

Sincerely, Arvid
