An Anglo-Australian import, Rob is a self confessed graffiti and street art geek. With experience working for one of Berlin’s renowned galleries, focused heavily on abstract post-graffiti, he has emerged himself in all aspects of the movement. Away from the world of legally questionable art forms Rob spends his time tinkering with electronic music and restoring antique furniture.
Cole moved to Berlin over ten years ago to indulge in his greatest passion: not being in Ohio. Raised in what can only be accurately described as the “Ye-Haw” part of the States, Cole spent some time travelling the world before settling on Berlin as the perfect place to indulge in his second greatest passion: loudly and excitedly yelling at strangers in exchange for money. As someone who has always enjoyed art, history and culture (see why he didn’t fit in in Ohio?), Berlin appealed to Cole as a major hub of all three, and becoming a tour guide allowed for him to indulge in this passion professionally, and since the only other thing he is even passably qualified for is Guitar Hero 3, this seemed like that smarter professional option.
Marnie Feuerriegel is an Australian visual artist and muralist who has been living in Berlin since 2015. Coming from Far North Queensland in Australia, she has a deep love for all things bold, bright and colourful. She often expresses these motifs through her paintings. When not touring, you can also find her every Sunday at RAW Gelände Flohmarkt with her prints and catch some of Berlins amazing street art at the same time!

Jake is an actor and folk/punk/comedy singer/songwriter from Portland, Oregon USA. He jumped ship to Germany in 2016 and now works as a tour guide in Berlin. Tour guiding perfectly combines his passions for history & culture with performance and presentation, on the wide-open stage that is this vibrant city of endless opportunity and entertainment.

Ben made his way from the much loved island of NZ to arrive at the unknown shores of Berlin on New Years Eve 2007 – an explosive start to say the least! And began a long relationship with the city, who’s street art and music scenes captured his imagination and helped to cultivate his own unique style. He has been giving tours since 2010 and putting his art in the streets for almost as long under the name B.S, you might also find him in Kreuzberg art shop “Let It Bleed” as part of the collective there supporting local artists. With over 10 years experience expect a tour filled with street art stories and insights into the where and why of modern Berlin.
After graduating in economics in the UK, Anika returned home to Germany and quickly decided that she rather spends time showing people around her beloved Berlin than sitting in stuffy offices. Though she can tell you everything from Prussian Kings to the Berlin Wall, her main focus always stayed on her favorite part of the city, which is the alternative side of it. Spending almost all of her free time in independent cinemas, alternative rock concerts, queer parties, art exhibitions and skateparks, she knows about the city’s cultural landscape like no other and is happy to give out tips on anything going on from small street art galleries to the fine arts museums, from cosy jam sessions to Ballett and Opera.
Ani is a student and a multidisciplinary artist from Hong Kong. They are young but have a lot to say about a lot. With interests spreading across fields in art (music, painting, sculpture, graffiti, to name a few), they would be a great guide in touring you through some of the quintessential art-forms in Berlin. He also has a lot of style, so at the very least he would be interesting to look at. They go by any pronouns (except it) so feel free to refer to them however you want. When they’re not on the job, they would be in the studio, working or hanging out with their friends.
