My name is Jeff Mannes, and I’m a social scientist, sexual educator, speaker, tour guide and freelance writer. I’ve been living in Berlin since 2014, and since arriving here I’ve fallen more and more in love with this unusual, unique, and historic city. With Berlin Guide, I’ve turned my hobby into a profession – bringing an appreciation for Berlin club culture and LGBTQIA+ history to countless visitors every year.

Didn’t expect this to be as comprehensive,
thorough, and well researched. Jeff knows his stuff!
