OPEN WALLS Gallery focuses on street art & urban art. As a result, we personally know, manage, and work with many of Berlin’s most famous and established street artists. This makes our tour stand out – we are very well connected in the scene, which takes our tours on a very intimate route through the heart of Berlin’s street art. We want to share this knowledge with you, head over to our booking and reserve your tour today!

“When I arrived in Berlin in 2004 I immediately fell in love with the art I saw in the streets and particularly the work of Alias who has been very instrumental in my decision to dedicate my career to Urban Art. I remember seeing his stencils on my way home, telling me a story, sharing feelings and emotion. He became part of my life before we even met in person, that is the beauty of art in the streets: to reach out to people at a very unexpected moment. Since 2009, I have been fully dedicated to this scene and I’d be happy to share my experience with you. I’m ready when you are.”
