Thor

Hi, I’m Thor S. Schumacher an Icelander with a German surname who lives in Berlin. Founder of Berlin101 Tours and former GM. of 101 hotel Reykjavík. I first came to Berlin in 1991 and lived here in the mid nineties a few years after the Wall came down that made a lasting impression on me. I kept close ties with the city and have seen it change for the past 23 years after having lived in Prenzlauer Berg, now one of Berlin's trendy hotspots. As I love this "wild" creative city that Berlin is and being a world traveler, decided to move back here in 2017. I've been hosting both friends, family and guests for a while in the “multi kulti” Kreuzberg and taking them around the city as I enjoy being of service. Thus now I made my very own boutique tour (max 8 p) of The Berlin Wall & Jewish Quarter with it's dramatic history and stark contrasts.
