What our ex­pert Ber­lin concierges show off to their per­sonal guests.

San­dra Bösemüller, Re­gent Ber­lin

I take my guests to the Re­ich­stag dome, so they can see Ber­lin from above, fol­lowed by the Turk­ish mar­ket at May­bachufer. At the end of the day, I usu­ally take them to my lo­cal res­tau­rant, No­bel­hart & Sch­mutzig.

Torsten Kamin­ski, Ritz-Carl­ton Ber­lin

Apart from the clas­sic sights in Mitte, I take them to Kreuzberg, to the Ober­baum­brücke, to Oranien­straße and the Paul- Lincke- Ufer, and then for a drive through green Ber­lin, visit­ing places such as Sch­lacht­ensee lake, Pea­cock Is­land, or Pots­dam.

Sam Ndi­aye, Sof­i­tel Ber­lin Kur­fürs­ten­damm

I want to give them a glimpse of the var­i­ous facets of the city. This can be achieved via the hop- on, hop- off buses and, in good weather, with a boat trip along the Spree River or a "seven-lakes cruise" on the Wannsee.

Hatem Fer­jani, Ber­lin Mar­riott Ho­tel

I rec­om­mend visit­ing the Gar­dens of the World in Marzahn: It makes for a great day out for young and old. I also like tak­ing my guests on a boat ride through the govern­ment quar­ter, fol­lowed by a sun­set din­ner at the top of the TV tower with a great view over Ber­lin. Lutz Sch­nei­der, Westin Grand Ber­lin To the Re­ich­stag, Ber­lin Wall Me­mo­rial, Ga­leries Lafayette, Sche­unen­vier­tel around Hack­escher Markt, and Niko­laivier­tel.

Swen Roessler, Grand Hy­att Ber­lin

Def­i­nitely Check­point Char­lie and the Ber­lin Wall, and also Mu­seum Is­land, Hack­escher Markt, Karl-Marx-Allee, and the Gar­dens of the World.

Ger­hard Buskies, Hil­ton Ber­lin

Bran­den­burg Gate and Mu­seum Is­land are a must, but I also take them to ex­plore my lo­cal district of Friedrichshain, with a pub crawl along Si­mon- Dach-Straße, a visit to the weekly mar­ket on Box­ha­gen­er­platz, a walk in the trendy area of Re­valer Straße, and a ca­noe trip around the Stralau Penin­sula.

Carina Ger­ber, Ritz-Carl­ton Ber­lin

I like to take my guests on a 6am walk on Marschall­brücke bridge, to see the beau­ti­ful view of the Bun­destag and the Spree River.
