Hilke G.

Berlin, Germany

Working as a certified Berlin guide for over 30 years I'm very happy to share with you my experience as a contemporary witness of live in the divided city, the amazing fall of the wall and all the changes that took and take place here in Berlin, this fantastic city with a fabulous variety of sights, museums, art galleries, shops, clubs and pubs.

I studied in Berlin, Rome, Paris and Washington, graduated in art history, german history and literature, and published two books, one of them about the turkish immigrants in Berlin. Since I started to work as a certified guide in the late 80s it's a big pleasure to meet people from all over the world here in Berlin.

I can offer you a program aimed at your individual interests and needs and accompany you to unusual places for an unusually normal price. You have the choice between a general overview or a theme orientated exploration of the city.

Either by bus, limousine, public transport, taxi, by bicycle or to foot: You determine the form of transport. Wether for two hours or more, a day or a week, there are plenty of things to discover.

A visit to Potsdam is also worthwhile. This small city with its quaint historical city center also offers an array of beautiful parks and royal palaces that belong to the UNESCO world cultural heritage.
Excursions outside of Berlin are also on the agenda, for example a visit to the huge lift lock in Niederfinow, or to the royal palace in Rheinsberg or to the Spreeforest, a biosphere reserve by UNESCO.

An insight into the extraordinary steer you towards the ideas behind the obvious.
Always competent and always witty.
