Berlin, Germany

Dear Traveler, "Ich bin ein Berliner!" John F. Kennedy's famous words doubtless apply to me.

Kennedy's famous words doubtless apply to me. I was born in West-Berlin's American Sector in February 1971, and I grew up in the British Sector. In the French Sector, I went to school, and, moreover, political developments after the Berlin Wall was built forced parts of my family to live in East Berlin. To see them, we had to cross the border, which I did several times until the Wall fell in 1989.

Between 1991 and 2015, I joined the German Air Force. Therefore, my tours also focus on Germany's, Prussia's, and Berlin's history and politics. I would be more than happy to provide information about politico-military affairs from 1640 until today.

I have started to conduct Berlin tours in 2001. It started with military colleagues and friends. Since 2015, I have been working as a professional tour guide. Since both cities' history is strongly connected, I am also offering tours in Potsdam. You will be truly impressed by spending some hours in its beautiful area. Potsdam is much more than the two world-famous castles Sanssouci and Cecilienhof.

My understanding of being a professional ToursByLocals guide is that I am doubtless willing and capable to offer a comprehensive service. As a matter of course, I can arrange your visit of museums, shows, and other events. Please, do not hesitate to ask for recommendations for restaurants, coffee houses, bars, etc. If you have special wishes or "must sees", just let me know. I will create an individual tour tailored to the "mission".

Sincerely,
Alexander

Credentials

I finished two university degrees: one German degree in educational science (University of the Federal Armed Forces, Hamburg) as well as a U. S. MA in Security Studies (Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey/CA). In my master thesis, I analysed the end of the Republic of Weimar and Hitler's way to power in the early 1930s. During my military career, I also joined the German General Staff Training. Moreover, I wrote several research papers about transatlantic security.
