The team

BERLIN LIKE A LOCAL is a team of three independant tour guides in Berlin with a history degree and years of practice! We are Berliners by birth or adoption. We love our city and we explore, explain and share it with great pleasure.

We met each other over the years conducting city tours in Berlin. Together, we decided to take over BERLIN LIKE A LOCAL in 2020, when the founders, Eric and Alice, moved back to France to run gîtes in the southern Ardèche.

Our vision and philosophy

We will develop with you customised, friendly and high-quality Berlin tours in English, whether on foot or by bike, to help you discover the Berlin city center or the eccentric and alternative Berlin. We also offer our tours in French and in German.

For years we have been observing the political, social and urban development of Berlin, as well as the latest news about Street Art and the many projects of Berlin’s sub-culture. We have a lot of things to tell you!

Björn - Tour guide

As a German and coming from an old Berlin family, my story is linked to Berlin’s history. My mother came from the East, but I was born in West Berlin. We left the French occupation zone for France, where we stayed 4 years. Then we went to the Netherlands, but when I was 18, I decided to return to “Germany”, which was still West Germany at the time.

In 1989 I worked in Munich as a military nurse and helped to care for refugees from the GDR. I used to come back to Berlin regularly, but this overwhelming experience and the crazy 90s made me settle there. Once I graduated, I realised I wanted to share Berlin’s history by wandering the streets and leading guided tours.

Before anything else, history is about the lives of human beings. It can only be understood by observing the city and discovering how its inhabitants have lived – or survived. Everyday, I am inspired and amazed by the cultural richness and freedom that are still and luckily so strong in Berlin.

After spending years studying history, I was suddenly caught up in the alternative neighbourhoods of Berlin. I moved there in 2011 with a big backpack and lots of dreams, which over the years have come true: to make experimental music in Berlin’s underground scene, to travel as much as possible and to share my passion for Berlin.

Since 2012, I have been working both with agencies and as a freelance tour guide, accompanying individuals, schools and companies to discover Berlin, with good humour and great delight! Fascinated by history, arts, urbanism and sociology, I love presenting unusual or more confidential areas or themes in Berlin.

In the off-season, I often take my backpack to go and explore an other part of the world, but I’m always delighted to come back to this modern, creative and green city, whose history moves and questions, but most of all, a city that values difference, tolerance, solidarity and community spirit.

In the course of a story, a conversation or an extraordinary location, perhaps you will also be moved by the charm of Berlin?

As a true modern history geek, I decided in 2011 to leave Paris and to settle in Berlin. Since then, I have been sharing my passion for this vibrant city, either as a local and independent tour guide or by collaborating with agencies.

With a master’s degree in modern history of international relations, I analyse and deconstruct the history of Germany and Berlin in order to transmit complex historical concepts with simplicity and humour.

Thanks to more than ten years working as a leader or trainer in youth centers, I have learnt to pass on information in a didactic way and to communicate it in a lively way to all kinds of audiences.

Bringing a historical, political, social and artistic content to my visits, I wish to help everyone understand Berlin’s past and present times, from the youngest to the most inquisitive visitors…!

We can’t wait to show you Berlin and share our good addresses with you!
