Your Berlin Private Guide Janna

Hello, I’m your Berlin Privateguide Janna Ressel! Since 1994, I offer Berlin city tours as a “professional Berliner”. I’m a certified member of Berlin Guide Association and BVGD (Federal Association of German Tour Guides).

National Socialist and Jewish history

is a main focus in my profession as Berlin Guide, also with Holocaust Study tours. I give bespoke tours on Jewish History, Nazi History, whether as city tours or city walks. I guide in Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial and tour guide to Prague/Terezin and Krakow/Auschwitz.

Why I love my job

Berlin is and always will be a city with a truly unique history. It offers such a wide range of topics to learn about. For many years, I worked in the common tourist industry, but now I only offer private tours. Apart from the challenge of conveying German history and present times, I cherish meeting people from all over the world: Australian IT specialists, Bulgarian bankers, pupils from Munich/Bavaria, families from the Philippines, Senegalese environmentalists, China, India, Brazil, México, Canada, Perú, Austrian opera singers and conductors, German surgeons, Swiss foodies, Romanian vintners, US American lawyers, Venezuelan peace activists and so on…
