When it comes to knowledge of Jewish and general Berlin, Yoav is simply fantastic. Even people who know a lot about the subjects will learn an immense amount from Yoav.

I had the pleasure of touring with both Yoav and Natalie on different days. I was extremely impressed with not only their ability to plan a comprehensive tour of Jewish Berlin but also their in depth knowledge of German history. They both possess a wonderful understanding of art and sculpture. Their commentaries and artistic incites added a great deal to... More

Yoav was professional and easy to work with through email planning for our visit. He arranged car transport from the port of Warnemunde. The driver was there to meet us as scheduled. After an easy 2:30 hour drive, we picked up Yoav and began a non stop day of touring. Having the driver allowed us to move quickly and efficiently... More

We did a two day tour with Yoav. We gained an overview of the main sites dealing with the history of Berlin both Jewish and non Jewish. He tailored the tour to meet our interests as well as discussing issues with us to increase our knowledge and challenge our thinking. He was a most professional and stimulating guide.

Yoav was a very knowledgeable guide leading us through the one of the Jewish areas in Berlin. He also had a vast knowledge of WWll history. We chose him because the free tour was not given on the days we were in Berlin. It is quite costly but it was better than going with a huge group. We covered more... More

Staying in Schoneberg

Neighborhood Profile
Schoneberg
In 1963, Schöneberg was the center of the political west, inspiring John F. Kennedy to choose this area to famously announce, "Ich bin ein Berliner." Times may have changed, but modern-day Schöneberg still pays tribute to its historical legacies. Once the richest city outside of Berlin proper, the area's affluent past is still visible in ornate housing facades dating back to the Gründerzeit of the 19th century, while residents in fur coats walking their dogs or shopping in high-end KaDeWe continue the tradition with a modern flair. Schöneberg was also once the center of the decadent and burlesque nightlife of the 1920s. It was here that Marlene Dietrich partied with Christopher Isherwood and the first gay bar in Germany was founded. Today, the gay community still revolves around Nollendorfplatz. The overground Ubahn station is even illuminated in rainbow colors, paying tribute to Schöneberg's progressive past.
