About Me


Couchsurfing Ambassador

Instagram: Kinosal42

I’m not planning weeks ahead, so you have better chances of being hosted when you request just two or three days before you come.
I have one rule for staying at my place: you can be there when I am, too. When I’m working (Mo-Fri) you have to leave with me at around 7 a.m.

I DO NOT host impersonal copy-and-paste-texters and non-profile-readers, CS is about being interested in the host as well and sharing each other’s good sides of life. I’m not a hotel free of charge!
You can write me in German, English, Spanish, French and even a little in Portuguese and Italian, I might understand. If you’re e.g. Spanish and write me in English I’ll know you haven’t read my profile.

REQUEST: Please write ‘VIVA COLONIA’ and I’ll know you’ve read this.

Introduce Surfers to Cologne -> Please have a look at my couch photos.

I don’t really like copy/paste stuff, although sometimes I know it can be difficult. But I host a lot and your chances are higher if you have a concrete reason why you’re asking me. And I don’t accept messages, send me a proper surf request, please. If you’re new to this, familiarize yourself with the system first. Especially when you’re native French or Spanish or Portuguese and write me in English anyway I know that you haven’t even looked at my profile since I understand those languages.

Movie maniac and passionate cameraman, always in for getting to know new, cool people and doing some magic tricks.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I surfed a few times myself, in Madrid, Paris and Athens, with great experiences. Right now I'm living in the center of Cologne and offer my couch.
