Once one of three Berlin Wall border points, bridging the divide between the Allied-occupied West Berlin and Soviet-occupied East Berlin, Checkpoint Charlie is one of the most important Cold War sites in Berlin. Today, a recreated guard house marks the site where numerous confrontations, escape attempts, and protests took place, and the adjoining Checkpoint Charlie Museum is a moving tribute to those who risked their lives to escape from East Germany and bring about the fall of the wall.

I am one of the longest working and most experienced jewish Berlin guides. Already in 1987 I came to live in Berlin as to Alumni of the Film & Television department of the Tel Aviv University. 20 years ago I started guiding friends and kept the personal touch while becoming highly professional about the Jewish history and the history of Berlin. Those 20 years so gave the experience to customize your itinerary. I know every corner, street, building, place in the jewish quarters and I have detailed historical and cultural knowledge for all these and many other stories about individuals or their families living in Berlin. My clients are in a hurry, they have enough space to fit 6 clients and they are still quite roomy and comfortable when full. If you wish and the weather permits it, we can also do walking tours.
