Enjoy a 3-hour street art walking tour of Berlin. Urban artists from all around the world paint the walls of the German capital with their colors, messages and gigantic frescoes. Departing from Alexanderplatz, your private guide will walk you through the districts of Mitte, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. Your Berlin street art tour starts at Alexanderplatz, which will be the meeting point. Scattered all around the Berlin district of Mitte, most of the pieces here are illegal and small. Techniques, humor, politics, and poetry: you will see immediately the excitement offered by the local street art scene.
You will then explore the banks of the Spree River and a new venue. The Berlin alternative scene negotiated this location patiently with the city officials. It offers an incredible haven of relaxation, a collaborative spirit, and an ecological and festive atmosphere, all in the heart of Berlin. With its open and modern architecture and collaborative principles, the venue offers a new economic model. Street art is fully integrated and is part of the project. You will see here some of the most recent Berlin XXL frescoes. The East Side Gallery in Friedrichshain is a must-see. It is the longest preserved section of the Berlin wall accessible to the public. Artists from around the world were invited in the early ‘90's to express themselves on this 1.3 km (1 mile) long portion of the wall. You will stop here during the Berlin street art tour in front of a selection of the most interesting or iconic pieces. You will also go through a collaborative garden. Beehives, healthy food, and innumerable edible plant crops all come together in an open-air organic supermarket for Berliners. Of course, a large-format fresco looks over it in its entirety. Here we will be entering the district of Kreuzberg, where many older works of street art are steeped in history.
Street art is for everyone! It dialogues, reacts, claims, and affirms. It replaces advertising and governmental messages at the street level. Enter the discussion by taking this Berlin street art walking tour. Come explore and react to the murals.Highlights
