Our team consists of three members, which are introducing themselves on this page.


Grüessech and welcome to Bern! My name is Patrick and together with Nora I founded Free Walking Tours Bern a couple of years ago. I was born in this city in 1980 and never got bored of my beautiful home ever since! I'm a passionate traveller, trumpet player and hiker and (working as a Software Engineer) a huge nerd. One thing that I've learned as a traveller was, that you never really know a city until you have seen it through the eyes of a local. On my tour you will learn a lot about Bern's history but I will also tell you a lot of stories that you can't find on Wikipedia. Together we will explore the old town and it's secrets and we get to know the funny people who live in it's walls. See you soon! Patrick


Bern is the perfect place to go for walks. With its compact old town, the cooling river Aare, charming neighborhoods and nearby woods for leisure activities, I can think of no better way to explore Switzerland’s capital than by foot.
I was born in Bern and ever since moving back here ten years ago, I’ve loved to stroll around and to discover more and more exciting details. On my tour, I’d like to tell you about Bern’s rich history and to give insights into locals' everyday life, but most of all, I would like to pass on my passion for my hometown.
I’m a historian and freelance writer. Other than Bern, I love music and arts and enjoy great people’s company, good food, playing tennis and travelling.


Growing up here I am a real girl of Bern or as we would say in Swiss German “es Bärner Meitschi”. It

is the home of my heart! As I was travelling and taking free walking tours in other cities, I liked it a

lot and ever since wanted to become a City Guide in my home town myself. And voilà, here we are... I love history and the stories of our beautiful city are to be carried on


Hi there! Being an extremely curious person I love to learn about cultures (that's why I studied Social Anthropology), about people and their stories, I love books you can't put aside, nature's wonders, colours, food (in big quantities), hidden places to explore and the history behind an object. And why only learn about all those things while travelling? Although I've grown up in a small village outside of Berne I definitely see it as my hometown and enjoy sharing my experiences and knowledge with you - and it will not just be what Google shows you as the top 10 things to see in Berne;)
