Janna R.

Berlin, Germany

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Berlin! Since 1994 I show Berlin to visitors, guiding in English, Spanish and German, and I'm still passionate about this ever changing town.

Berlin is: modern German politics, national socialist and socialist past, the scar of the Wall, city planning, Prussian kings and emperors, avantgarde arts and cultures, multiethnic life, dreamy lakeshores, a great amount of freedom, and so much more. . . but mostly, of course, it's the 20th century history which counts here!

The two big tales of the 20th century were Berlin-made - one of deepest misery and one of highest joy - Hitler's Third Reich and the Fall of the Berlin Wall. It was the fascination of Berlin soon after the fall of the Wall that made me turn Berlin into my profession.

I offer comprehensive and knowledgeable services, always according to my guest's interests and wishes, for visitors in and around Berlin.

All my tours can be taken either with minivan, bus, or walking/taxi/public transport.

I also offer serving as your travel guide in East Germany, e. g. to Dresden, Leipzig, or the Hanseatic Towns on the Baltic Coast as Greifswald, Stralsund, the islands Ruegen and Usedom, also traveling to Prague.

A Recent Review of this guide

The photos that Janna used to show the condition of an area were immensely helpful in understanding the effects of WWII and the Russian occupation. Great tour and we were impressed with her knowledge. She also helped us find the easiest transportation to Potsdam by the S-Bahn for our next day trip.
