- a day excursion according to your ideas!

You would like to spend a day (or more) in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania and like to trace family roots? Here I am! I like to show you around wherever you like to go and support any research if necessary.
If you are interested in German history of the past - we will have a look to some of the GDR sights (1949-1989) - the period before German re-unification.
If you are interested in Hanseatic traditions - we offer a customized city tour to you - whether in Rostock, Wismar or Stralsund.
If you are interested in castles and manor houses - come on and join our tour to our fairy tale castle of Schwerin or let's visit the famous Renaissance Guestrow castle.
If you are interested in local food - we will visit a local country market and you could easily sample some culinary delights in a local coffeeshop and/or restaurant.
