Dear Customers, dear Friends, dear Travelers looking for Advice during the Corona crisis!

In these times of crisis, it is our highest concern that everybody stay healthy and safe. Obviously the less people move and travel, the better their chances to stay healthy. So we encourage you to take all measures necessary.

A Friend in Berlin is a small company so luckily we do not have a lot of overhead costs and we can survive for many months without business. Nevertheless we continue to operate should you wish a tour in Berlin, Munich, or elsewhere in Germany. There will be no cancellation fee should you cancel up to 24 hours in advance. Of course we adhere to all the regulations and public safety advice so you can be sure that we would do everything in our power to minimize any risk of catching the virus.

In the meantime we got together and filmed some shots of Berlin - Please check out the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUD1rrtdmxo. We may also do a live-session soon to give you some Berlin-stories, and to answer your questions, so stay tuned to our Facebook page!

Hopefully things will improve soon. Stay healthy and come back once the risk dies down!

Travels with Teens

This was an idea I had several years ago. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to sell these tours. Nevertheless I still believe it’s a great idea and maybe one day I’ll be able to realize my plans. In the meantime, if you know a couple of other families and you want to do something similar, let me know and we’ll create a tour just for you!

If you ever had to plan a trip with teenage kids, you know how difficult it can be to find something that the whole family will enjoy. Will the teens mope and be bored all day while you are trying to enjoy museums and culture? Or will you have to go to some hyper adventure hotel just so that the kids can have fun? Dealing with these issues myself, I came up with some great ideas I would like to share with others. In fact, I designed a couple of tours that will be exciting and fun-filled for everyone, adults and teens alike.


The tour I designed follows a few important principles:

  • Only families with teens will travel along so that your kids will find others to hang out with and no childless couples will throw you looks of annoyance (or pity)
  • All the hotels are at least 4 stars and include a pool so that your kids have something to look forward to in the evening(and you will stay at least 2 nights in every hotel so that you can use these features).
  • Every day there will be something for everyone and something for those who like fun and adventure. If the grown ups don’t want to join the kids, there will be an alternative program for them.
  • There will be a special guide for the kids traveling along so that they will always be supervised.
  • Groups will be between 20-30 (so that enough teens will be on board, but without being squeezed into your typical tourist bus with 50 people)

In June 2015, we will offer the following 10-Day Tour:
Berlin - Romantic Road with Würzburg and Rothenburg - Munich - Salzburg Some of the highlights: guided tour of the German Parliament, visit of Legoland, climbing in an adventure park, visit of Cecilienhof, the site of the 1945-Potsdam Conference, traveling down the Romantic Road, visit of Neuschwanstein (the “Disney Castle”), paddeling through the Spreewald, a day-trip to Salzburg.
