About Us

Our story

Michael and Christian are the founders of The Amsterdam Feeling: “We left Germany more than 20 years ago and have been living in Amsterdam since then. We are experienced world travellers having visited more than 40 countries on all continents.

When coming to Amsterdam we developed a passion for its architecture and the rich history. Turning passion into a profession we became tour guides and founded The Amsterdam Feeling, specialising in private, personal groups, off the beaten track experiences and historic walking routes.

So join us and discover your own Amsterdam Feeling!”

OUR MISSION: Building memories

Our private tour with Christian was a major highlight of our visit to Amsterdam. We appreciate his historical knowledge, his openness about a wide range of issues, his sharing of many off-beat locations that we would never have stumbled on ourselves, and his general cosmopolitan nature. We will definitely contact him when we visit Barcelona, where he also runs tours.“, Stuart/Philadelphia, PA, United States (August 2022)

Christian and Michael are both from Dortmund, Germany. Both are passionate world travellers having visited 40 countries on all continents. In 2010 they did an all-around-the-world trip in six months. Both call Amsterdam their home for more than 20 years. 

Michael graduated from the University of Dortmund with a degree in social sciences. His hobby is photography. Many of his photos are displayed on this website.

Christian holds a dual degree in International Business and Management and has worked for many years in international companies: “In 2017 the idea developed that we would like to share our fascination about Amsterdam with other travellers from all over the world. It was the moment when The Amsterdam Feeling was born.”

Christian´s passion is history and during his walking tours you will be able to listen to his fascinating story telling. “We focus us on small, personal groups or private tours in Amsterdam and surrounding to provide the best experience to our guests.”

As Christian´s career path also brought him to Barcelona, both got attached to the beautiful city by the Mediterranean Sea as well. That is why they also divide their time between the two cities and founded The Barcelona Feeling. This way they are able to share their passion for both fascinating places with guests from all over the world .
