About me

I originally come from Finland, but have been living in Berlin for 14 years. I landed here for a traineeship, but stayed because of love to Berlin - but also to a native Berliner. Now we are already four and living the exciting everyday life of two boys with tons of toy cars. I’m not a history freak, but Berlin’s past has so many layers, I got interested. The first-hand family stories of Eastern Berlin come alive by visiting the sites. If you want to see and hear more - then let’s go together! In Finland, I studied cultural anthropology and have an enthusiasm for languages and other cultures. That makes Berlin a place with lots of options for me: eating in a restaurant without a fork and a knife, visiting the Turkish market or maybe a museum. And when I feel that Finland is too far away, I buy a bag of salty licorice and dive in to Berlin’s Scandinavian atmosphere. Finnish is my native language, but no worries, fortunately I speak also German and English fluently.

People who viewed Jenni also viewed these hosts

I love getting to know new people and places. I'm completely in love with Berlin's vibrant mix of history and new beginnings, excellence in traditional art forms as well as alternative music, theatre and visual arts. I'm a classical singer but have always had very broad interests; for many years I specialised in traditional dance and percussion from Latin America and the Caribbean and I still play with a Cuban percussion ensemble here in Berlin. Apart from music I have a passion for fine food and drink, religion, philosophy, history, queer and alternative histories and museums as well as visual arts from painting to cinema and how they link with wider artistic movements such as Bauhaus and Dada. Among my other jobs I have been a care-worker, story-teller and workshop leader, so I have great experience working with children, young people and those with special needs. I'm a generous Host and love connecting people and showing them new places, stories and ideas that others have shared with me.

I'm a freelance photographer, independent tour guide and city flaneur for already more than 6 years living in Berlin, and I have explored the city from inside out. I am a self-proclaimed hedonist, and find excitement in sensual, emotional and intellectual aspects of life. I have been working as a guide for both individual travelers and my friends, speaking English, Russian and Italian, fluently.
