Hi, I'm Wim

I'm a certified cityguide and a runner. 

With Antwerp Running Tours I combine these two passions. 

In real life I'm a change and communications manager in a bank. But don't worry, guiding is my escape!

My kids are grown up, which gave me time to get a certificate as a city-, museum- and churchguide. During these four years I learned more than just the theory.
As a local, I will show you the ins and outs  of Antwerp in a pleasant and professional way.


Hi, I'm Ariane

I’m  37 and living in Zurenborg – Antwerp.

My studies in archeology combined my passion for arts and history and my active outside activities like rockclimbing, traveling and exploring the world.

Professionally I’m a safety instructor on high altitudes in the Port of Antwerp and an outdoor instructor. As you can guess you can always find me outside.

Since 2015 I’m a guide in the most beautiful Antwerp open air Middelheimmuseum.

I met Wim - it is quite impossible to avoid Wim in Antwerp ;) - and we soon teamed up to show you Antwerp on our Antwerp Running tours.
