I’m Ali, and I’ve been living in Berlin since 2015.

My husband, Andy, and I fell instantly in love with Berlin when we stayed here for a three month contract in 2013. A little over a year later we were packing up our apartment in the Black Forest and moving across the country.

We’re originally from the US, but Germany is now home. And I love Berlin so much that I want to make sure you have the best trip possible when you visit Berlin.

Too often tourists come here and miss out on some of the best things the city has to offer because they simply didn’t know those things existed. Or they run out of time because they didn’t realize the best way to organize their itineraries.

My aim is to help you avoid this pitfalls. I want to help you plan a trip based on your interests, whether you’re visiting Berlin for the history or the culture or simply to enjoy the city’s quirks. On this site, you’ll find plenty of suggested itineraries, tips for sights to visit, info about getting around the city, day trips from Berlin, and more!
