Jan-Benedict (JB) Werner,
Tour Guide and Guide Service Consultant for Berlin and Potsdam
English - German - Tour Guides for other languages


web03.jpg As professional tour guide, I personally conduct 200+ private tours per year for individual guests and private groups from all over the world. With over 20 years of experience, I can create elegant and exciting tours for the discerning traveller, study programmes for student and travel groups, as well as entertaining tours for incentives, meetings and events. My tours can be classical overview tours or thematic historical excursions, including guided tours of museums, palaces and memorials. I present historic photographs and historic audio clips on some of my tours.

You will find two short video clips with examples of my presenting style here (tour commentary driving through Checkpoint Charlie) and here (presentation in local Berlin dialect, subtitled in English).

I can hire additional professional tour guides who are committed to excellent quality for various languages.

I have also developed an exclusive city treasure hunt format: a guided tour combined with challenging treasure hunt stations, enabling participants to actively explore the city themselves in small competing teams.

Holding official guide licences, I can act as guide for the Pergamon Museum (main halls), the Cecilienhof Palace, Charlottenburg Palace - Old Palace and New Wing, Schönhausen Palace, Marmorpalais, Grunewald Palace, Neue Kammern Palace and Oranienburg Palace, as well as for the Charlottenburg Palace Gardens, the Sanssouci Palace Gardens and "Neuer Garten" in Potsdam.

I am also licensed to act as driver guide for individual guests and small groups of up to eight people.

I am a member of MPI Meeting Professionals International, of the RDA International Coach Tourism Federation e.V., the German Historical Museum Friends' Association (Museumsverein des Deutschen Historischen Museums e.V.) and the Friends of the German Museum of Technology Berlin (Freunde und Förderer des Deutschen Technikmuseums Berlin e.V.)
