Guided hikes, sustainable

Experience nature with Germany's most famous bird and animal voice imitator!

As a qualified biologist and certified nature and landscape guide, I offer bird call excursions, nature experience hikes, lectures and seminars. In addition to the enjoyment of nature, the focus of my events is on entertaining, lively knowledge transfer. I also use my talent to imitate the voices of many native birds and other animal species and to understand their meaning. In this way I open up a particularly intensive access to nature for you. Details and dates for public events can be found on my homepage. You can also book me for individual events for groups or individuals. I am a partner of the Biosphere Reserve Schaalsee and owner of the regional brand "For Body and Soul".
