Berlin is dazzling!Frank Werdermann – City Tours of Berlin & Potsdam
The best education for a clever person is found in travel.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
(1749 - 1832)
Classical poet, scientist, and statesman
My family has lived in the Berlin-Brandenburg region for over 350 years. Local poet Theodor Fontane spoke of Councilman Johann Andreas Werdermann in his travelogue “Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg.” He was one of the benefactors of the “Luisendenkmal,” a monument erected in 1811 in the village of Gransee near Berlin.
I have been leading groups of visitors through Berlin-Brandenburg for more than ten years. As a partner of Berlin Tourismus & Kongress GmbH and the Berlin Treptow-Köpenick e.V. tourism association, I serve international visitors in Berlin. My customers include well-known tour operators from Germany and abroad as well as family-owned bus tour companies. On November 24, 2008, I successfully completed the “Tour Guide Exam” of the Potsdam Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
I would be happy to serve your guests as their guide for an exciting city tour, an eventful daytime excursion or even a diverse multi-day tour. Please request a custom program and pricing offer. I look forward to hearing from you!
City tours of Berlin and Potsdam and guided tours through the Bundesland of Brandenburg are my profession. I am just as enthusiastic about leading study tours as I am student and youth groups. Whether on foot or by bus, limousine, or bicycle – I can communicate with your guests in German, English, and Spanish. A team of competent guides assist me when guiding larger groups.
My portfolio of services includes licensed tours for The Prussian Palaces and Gardens Foundation of Berlin-Brandenburg as well as tours of The Alte Nationalgalerie of Berlin. I will also guide your guests through the historic KPM Royal Porcelain Manufactory of Berlin. In partnership with Brandenburgische Schlösser GmbH, I lead visitor groups through the manors and gardens of Prussian nobility. And as a Sergeant of the Berlin Royal Guard, I can bring guests along on an entertaining patrol of Berlin's historic Schlossplatz.
I would be happy to plan a custom tour of the Berlin-Brandenburg region and for a fixed price, so you know exactly what to expect. I look forward to hearing from you!

The use of the website contents is at the user’s own risk. Pursuant to article 7, para. 1, of the German Telemedia Act (TMG), as a service provider we are responsible for our own contents on this website according to the general legislation. According to articles 8 to 10 of the TMG, however, as a service provider we are not obliged to monitor third-party information that is transmitted or stored, or to search for circumstances indicating illegal activity. If we become aware of such legal infringements, we will promptly remove the relevant content. The mere use of the provider’s website does not constitute a contractual relationship between the user and the provider.
Liability claims against the provider related to damage of a material or non-material nature resulting from the use of or failure to use the information presented or from the use of incorrect and incomplete information are categorically excluded unless wilful misconduct or gross negligence on the part of the provider can be proven. All offers and services are subject to change and non-binding. The provider expressly reserves the right to change, add to or delete parts of the site or the entire service, or to discontinue the publication temporarily or permanently, without special notice.
References and links
In the case of direct or indirect references to third-party websites („hyperlinks“) that lie outside the area of responsibility of the author, any obligation with respect to liability would only then take effect if the author is aware of the contents and if it is technically feasible and reasonable for him to prevent such use in the case of illegal contents. The author hereby expressly declares that at the time the links were established, no illegal contents were evident on the sites being linked to. The author has no influence at all on the current and future design, contents or authorship of the linked/connected sites. For this reason, he takes no responsibility for the contents of all linked/connected sites that have been changed since the links were set up. This statement shall apply to all links and references that have been established within the author’s Internet offer, and also for third-party entries in the guest books, discussion forums, link indices, mailing lists and all other databanks types set up by the author whose contents may be subject to write access from external sources. Should there be any illegal, incorrect or incomplete contents, and especially for damages arising from the use or non-use of such featured information, the provider of the site referred to shall alone be liable, not the one who merely refers to the particular publication concerned via links.
Copyright and identification law
The author undertakes the responsibility to ensure that in all publications the copyrights are observed for the graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts used, or that graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts are used that he has compiled himself, or that graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts that are in the public domain are resorted to. Any and all brands and trademarks mentioned in the Internet offer that are protected by third parties shall be governed without limitation by the provisions of the particular identification law that applies as well as by the rights of ownership of the respective registered owner. It must not be assumed that brands are not protected by the rights of third parties solely due to the fact that they have been merely mentioned. The copyright for published objects compiled by the author himself shall alone be retained by the author of the sites. It shall not be permitted to copy or use such graphics, sound files, video sequences and texts in other electronic or printed publications without the express permission of the author.
Legal force of this exclusion of liability
This exclusion of liability shall be considered part of the Internet offer referred to on this website. Should parts or individual formulations of this text not, no longer or not completely correspond to the valid legal situation, the remaining parts of the document shall remain unaffected with regard to their content and validity.
