Basel, Basel-Stadt, Switzerland

Welcome to my profile! Here a few words about myself and my background.

For almost five years I have guided in over 13 towns in Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and France. I have done so mainly while working on river cruises and even though I loved it, I was always with big groups of 40 people and would have liked it a bit more personal. That is where ToursByLocals and hopefully you are coming in!

I will take you around Basel in a more interactive way. I love it when tours turn into discussions about certain topics the travelers are interested in opposed to running a tape doing the same thing over and over again. You decide about the focus of our tour, be it the rich history we have, legends or what is happening this very moment here in Switzerland, Germany. . . Europe.

I was born and raised in the Black Forest in South-Western Germany but my manners will prove that I was not raised by wolves - I hope! I love to travel myself and I think my extensive traveling helps to get new perspectives on the places I come from too. I studied sociology, educational science and social psychology and I love our history and try to bring it alive.

I fell in love with Basel several years ago when I started guiding and fell in love with a Swiss girl living there. Now I am married and father of a little boy and we live just a few minutes away from the impressive river Rhine that made Basel the beautiful city it is now.
