About me

madrid by heart

Josephine Berne

Madrid by Heart is a homage to the city I adore, my home since 1993.

After my first trip to Spain on holiday with my parents, I said to my grandmother: “It’s strange but I feel more at home in Spain than I do in Sweden.” The light, the colors and the contrasts captivated me, as did the people. The Madrileños fill the streets and squares all year round making their city such a lively and exciting place to be.

Trilingual Guide of Madrid

As soon as I’d finished my A Levels in Sweden, I packed my bags and moved to Madrid. The only things I knew about the city back then were the Prado Museum with its famous paintings, and the films of Pedro Almodóvar. I wanted to discover more so I decided to learn Spanish and study for my Diploma in Tourism in Madrid.

After graduating, I began to work in the tourist sector; in hotels, airlines and travel agencies. For several years I worked as a tour director which allowed me to get to know the rest of Spain.

I then decided to specialize, and in 2005 I passed the exams to become the first, and still today, the only Official Guide to Madrid from Scandinavia. Since 2011, I’ve also been creating tailor-made travel plans for clients from Scandinavia and from around the world visiting Madrid.

"Madrid by Heart is born of my passion for showing all that this city has to offer. I aim to provide travelers with personalized programs designed around their own preferences, needs and interests. "
