About the tour

On this tour, Martin takes you through what is known as Berlin's Jewish Neighbourhood, where literally every building has a story to tell. You'll get to see Berlin's oldest Jewish cemetery, a Jewish Boys' School that goes back to the 18th century, as well as a Jewish Girls' School which has since been converted into one of Berlin's swankiest restaurants. The tour concludes at the beautiful, world-famous New Synagogue from 1866.

Martin

Having experienced the fall of The Wall first hand, Martin lived abroad between 1994 and 2010, first in London and later in Paris. He later went back to studying, gaining an MA and PhD in the UK. After completing his PhD dissertation on German-Jewish exile organisations that emerged as a result of the rise to power by the Nazis, he was then offered to contribute to the exhibition “Eichmann on Trial”, organised by Berlin’s Topography of Terror. And so, Martin was back in Berlin, re-discovering the city he'd left so long ago. Fascinated by Berlin’s total make-over since he left some 16 years earlier, he decided to turn his rekindled fascination with Berlin into his profession. He has since obtained his official certificate that classifies him as a fully licenced Berlin Tour Guide.

Martin has been guiding since May 2011
