Real, Old, New Berliner, continuous enthusiastic explorer of the city and Berlin city tours, Berlin-Lover und Founder of kontext.Berlin
I am a visual artist and have worked as an art teacher in London for many years before moving to Berlin. Hence, presenting city tours comes quite natural to me. I am an art, art-history and history enthusiast and have worked for several different tour opeartors in Berlin before setting up this site. I still continuously discover new and interesting details about Berlin and I love to pass these on during my tours.

The tour includes breaks and snacks at five different restaurants and street food places. This may include Ethiopian; Vietnamese, Peruvian, Austrian and German quisine. (Berliner Döner, Fallafel and/or Currywurst on request).
A 'snack' means a small portion -not a praline-size bite, so you can expect to receive a full meal during the tour. Drinks are not included, but may of course be purchased in addition. During the walk between the stations you wil learn some history and anecdotes about the neighbourhood - which is an area of Berlin that is in a moment of drastic change.
Have you ever heard of a church whose bell towers are on the vicarage across a courtyard from the main building? You will on this tour!
The tour can be adapted in lenght and of course to dietary needs and wishes.
This is a private tour of a small group. I will not carry a sign or an umbrella to herd you along (though our Kontext Bear would look really nice on a T-Shirt 🤔)
The district 'Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg' -fused together during an administrative reform in 2001 (the two districts that nobody else wanted..)- is geographically in the very center of Berlin, though it never feels like this. It combines today some extremeley different neighbourhoods.
