Who we are
Welcome to Berlin Locals - my name is Arja and I have been working as a full time tour guide in Berlin and all around Europe since 2007. I am a studied historian and passionate about all the big and small stories surrounding this beautiful city I call home. Born and raised in Northwestern Germany I came to Berlin after finishing university in Hamburg with a Masters degree in history and American literature and having travelled the world for 4 years. With my family roots in the city I always felt drawn to the multitude of layers of life you can find in Berlin starting with my own family story. Telling stories is what I love and meeting people from all over the world is the next best thing to travelling the world myself.
Together with a team of dedicated professionals I will make sure that your time in Berlin will be an unforgetable experience.
