Book your personal French and German speaking city guide at Walk Berlin!
In this blog we like to present to you the Walk Berlin City guide who takes care of tours throughout Berlin. Tour guide and passionate Berlin resident, Anne Lainaut, started the Walk Berlin Tour company in June of this year.
She is French but moved to Berlin already in 2006, so you can also call her a Berliner. She studied German, History and Journalism. Anne can give you a personal tour, in German or in French.
As long as she can recall, Anne has had a big fascination for Berlin and the rich history the city has. Working as a museum tour-guide since 2008 and a city tour-guide since 2013 she has a lot of knowledge about Berlin and she loves to share this with the people who join her on the tour.
You can choose between 3 different tours with different historic subjects and accents.
Tour 1: The Berlin Wall
this tour takes you back to the time of cold war in Europa….a walk where the wall used to be and some rests of the Berlin wall will give you a good idea of what it used to be like in Berlin during that time. Tales of people who wanted to flee from east Berlin to West Berlin will make you shiver at some points….this is really a good tour for all of you who are interest in this young history of the city, it´s only 24 years ago since the wall came down….
Tour 2: Hitlers Berlin
takes you back in the time where the Nazi´s ruled Germany. In 1933 Hitler turned Germany in a national-socialistic dictatorship and everything changed for the worse slowly but surely….This tours takes you to historical points in Berlin where the Nazi-regime took its place, also it tells tales about the resistance against the ´brown power`.
Tour 3: French Tracks in Berlin
the French have a long term relationship with the city of Berlin. It goes back till the 30 years´war in the 17th century, where a lot of French people moved to Berlin, in 1806 with the Napoleon War and in 1945 where the French Sektor in Berlin emerged a lot of French came here. The French come to Berlin therefore has a real historic meaning, so there are really a lot of tracks to follow!
