Feel free to piece your tours together as you wish. As a specialist on Jewish history, I’d be glad to put together a customized program for you for your time in Berlin.

Since Frankfurt am Main is my second domicile, I also offer tours in Frankfurt and the Rhine-Main region. I suggest the following tours in Frankfurt.

As an expert in Jewish history in Poland, I can help you combine your stay in Berlin with an onward journey to Jewish Poland. See my tours for Jewish Poland.
