I offer custom-made walking tours in English and German through the historic French Quarter of New Orleans, the Garden District, and St. Louis #1, the city's oldest cemetery. I am originally from the Frankfurt/Main region of Germany, and have been living in the U.S. since the 1990's. As a radio journalist, I have done extensive reporting on New Orleans and the South. It is my goal to give visitors a feel for this unusual place, a city that in many respects seems more Caribbean and Mediterranean than American. I present visitors with an appreciation for its history by telling the stories of the residents of New Orleans, those who lived here in the past and those who shape it today. You will learn about the Creoles, why Jazz was born in this city, and what makes New Orleanians go crazy every year during our Carnival season called Mardi Gras.
