Stefan Gödde has climbed into dormant volcanoes with his camera, has experienced the madness of North Korea up close and spent time in Chernobyl and Fukushima, but there is no reason to believe he is tired of life - actually, the opposite is true!
He loves both life and his job, which is communicating exciting knowledge - as a journalist, television presenter and book author. Whenever he has a little time for himself, Stefan is to be found enjoying nature in the forest or on the tops of mountains. He has five godchildren, one of whom lives in Africa. Oh, and let's not forget the fact that Stefan is godfather to a cute little polar bear girl in Munich Zoo who loves to hug him to death. Not literally, of course - he hopes!
Along with Rome, Jerusalem is Stefan's favourite city, fascinated as he is by the topics of history and religion. For this reason his new book is called 'Nice to meet you, Jerusalem' and he has decided to donate the profits from the book to charitable projects run by the Benedictine Abbey 'Dormitio' in Jerusalem.
Stefan is a modern-day discoverer, a man of his beloved Sauerland at heart, a student of German and English language and literature, a self-confessed book junkie and a huge fan of the aphorism attributed to Marcus Tullius Cicero:
Never begin to cease learning, and never cease to begin it.
With this in mind: Enjoy browsing this website or Stefan's Instagram Account.
