Day Trip to Berlin.
I arrange for a pick-up at the cruise ship dock for a Berlin day trip. Please ask for details and tours available.
Food for Thought. My husband Matthias is a private chef with a passion for creating culinary masterpieces.
We invite you to join us for a very special evening of fine dining and conversation about life in Berlin – all in the relaxed atmosphere of our private apartment in the trendy neighborhood of Prenzlauer Berg. It will be an evening of great food and fascinating stories. Matthias grew up in East Germany and managed to get out in 1988. His first-hand accounts of everyday life under Communism are truly amazing. A private dinner also allows us to talk about other topics often left untouched by a daytime tour: everyday life in Berlin, the people and culture, and some of the differences between German society and the English-speaking world.
Do you like dogs? – Weather permitting I would be happy to bring my Dachshund Leylah on our tour with us. She loves to walk and meet new people!
Ich bin ein Berliner!
Want some company during your stay in Berlin? Spend the day with me! I am happy to share my personal experiences, stories and anecdotes about living as an expat in Germany's capital. We can do the must-see's or take the not-so-beaten path in this fascinating city.
Rather not walk?
I offer a car and driver service. Please ask. I prefer to work with professional, locally licensed drivers so that I can give you my complete and undivided attention.
