BBS guides are special. That’s because we are passionate and
experienced guides who know Berlin better than anyone.

We are versatile and are just as comfortable leading coach parties
as we are giving private car tours in Berlin or beyond.

The Bündnis Berliner Stadtführer (BBS) is an organization comprised of experienced
guides working in and around Berlin. We are trained, local historians whose passion is
sharing our knowledge of German history and culture with visitors to Berlin from around the world.

We have studied at reputable universities worldwide and have worked for years as guides in Berlin.
We are knowledgeable in the facts, but also well-versed in the stories that bring the city‘s history to life.  We are committed to providing an educational and enjoyable experience to all visitors coming to Berlin.  We are also constantly seeking to expand our own knowledge by exploring all corners of the city, both by ourselves and with fellow members.  We read all we can about Berlin‘s past and present, and strive to learn from outside experts and each other.

We have different backgrounds and have all come to the profession through different paths, but we share a commitment to excellence in guiding in Berlin. We therefore welcome any new members who fulfill the basic BBS requirements and share our interest in continuing education in order to maintain the quality and increase the high standard of the guiding services in the city.

We believe that the amazing pool of knowledge and experience which the guide community of Berlin has assembled could be made more accessible for peers and guests alike.  Therefore, the BBS aims to offer an opportunity for the guides of Berlin to come together to improve our skills and expand our knowledge to provide the best possible experience for the visitors to Berlin.

We list all of our guides to quickly and easily help you find an appropriate guide or if you’d like us to do the work, just drop us a line  and based on your criteria, appropriate guides will contact you.
