What people are saying about New Synagogue Berlin - Jewish Centre

You have to experience BERLIN! But that only works if you include history. On our tour we had a great guided tour by Susanne Selchow (Secret Tours Berlin). Yes, the courtyards are "steeped in history" and have significantly shaped today's Berlin - we have found that.

Well done and recommended! Informative, exciting, entertaining and entertaining guided tour through the backyards of the Spandau suburb. Our tour guide brought us closer to numerous places in Berlin and their history in a very charming manner and with great dedication.

Our guide Lillian did a wonderful job. You can tell that she puts her heart and soul into it. It was very interesting and great. Always my pleasure. Thank you for this omniscient guide.

I really enjoyed the tour because it took place in places that dabsola would not have visited. The guide spared no effort and was available to explain and answer questions.

Susanna is a smart, clear, enthusiastic and generous tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyable and informative tour.
