Bebelplatz is a public square in the central ‘Mitte’ district of Germany’s capital city, Berlin. Today it is best known for being the site where some 20,000 newly banned books were burned by bonfire in 1933 on order of Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, because they conflicted with Nazi ideology. The square is surrounded by notable historical buildings, including the German State Opera (Staatsoper); St. Hedwig’s Cathedral (built in 1747 and modeled after Rome’s Pantheon, it was the first Catholic church built in Germany after the Protestant Reformation); and the former Royal Prussian Library (Alte Bibliothek) which is now part of Humboldt University.

All of the buildings on Bebelplatz were destroyed in World War II and reconstructed afterward. An easily overlooked monument in the center of the square simply contains a pane of glass, which the visitor can look through to see many rows of empty bookshelves underground. A nearby plaque quotes the 19th-century German poet Heinrich Heine with, ‘Where they burn books, at the end they also burn people.’

In contrast to bus tours, on an individual taxi sightseeing tour you have the opportunity to stop almost everywhere - be it for a photo shoot, be it for a snack or a break, be it for a coffee. Or for a longer tour to take a closer look at an object or to have it explained to you (Berlin Cathedral, Hackesche Höfe, Brandenburg Gate, Gendarmenmarkt, Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, KaDeWe are recommended, for example). According to your interests and preferences! And in contrast to a tour, you don't just see a tiny section of our city, City East, the former center and City West, the former West Berlin! So combine the best of walking and bus tours in an Auto City Tour, just like I've always done privately with friends and relatives. And enjoy the luxury of being picked up personally from your accommodation in the S-Bahn-Ring. And all in a real Berlin luxury taxi SUV!

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.
