On our Street & Urban Art Tour, we’d like to guide you through our city’s multifaceted art jungle. Lining the route are works by international and local street-art specialists as well as nameless creative artists who are part of this scene.
Urban art, also known as street art, has been part of the urban scene ever since people started living in cities. Prehistoric cave paintings testify to human beings’ need to create a record of their lives and the world around them. Street art is often (not without reason) dismissed as mere scribblings, but it has evolved into a recognized genre of art and is nowadays even sold in renowned auction houses.
Cologne is an ideal place to take a closer look at this mix of styles. Another good reason to take this tour is that in Cologne many one-way streets are open to cyclists in both directions. We wish you lots of fun and a good eye for detail as you explore and discover!
