Travel Christmas through my book


Do you love traveling effortlessly? Berlin offers most exceptional sights of different countries, such as the Berlin Eiffel Tower, without having to plan anything at all! For each country I tailored an enthralling journey starting with unique breakfast places, historical sights to fancy cocktails at night. Additionally, each chapter features more exclusive highlights like stores, cafes, galleries and sights for each cultural trip as well as a chapter with my favorite restaurants for each international cuisine. To make life easier for you, you can also download the exclusive BertaWalks App onto your phone for real time tips around you.

Spin Painting Workshop


If you feel like exploring your creative side or if you still need a Christmas gift idea for Berliners, maybe you want to gift or participate in the Spin Painting Workshp from Jans Echternacht. Jans is one of the first Spin Painting artists in Europe. His spin painting consists of specially mixed liquid acrylic paint, then applied to a canvas with a wooden wedge frame which is rotated by a hi-tech electric motor. Forces during rotating cause colours to flow outwards and mix. A great deal of experience is required to achieve the correct mixing ratio of colours. There are over 20 different liquid acrylic paints available, specially mixed by Jans for Spin Painting. With his experience and support you will create your own unique artwork for Christmas and have a beautiful Christmas gift for your wall.


Jans also runs a children's aid project. With every donation you make, he visits children in hospitals, homes and refugee shelters with his mobile Spin Art machine to paint Spin Paintings together with them. Donate here.

Create playful and sustainable Tumi Ishi


Another idea for Christmas gifts would be a gift card for a Tumi Ishi wooden or maybe even selfmade balancing stones - for children or adults ;). The concept for these wooden stones originated in Japan; the name Tumi Ishi is Japanese for piled stones. In this workshop you are going to make a set of blocks together, using only waste wood from the local woodshops and startups.


This playful Christmas gift can be booked on their webseite.
