Reasons to Visit

Graffiti & Street Tour & Workshop

Take to Berlin’s streets and discover some of the latest and greatest examples of street art, graffiti and mural art in this famous capital of urban art. On your tour you’ll take a detailed look at over 50 local and international artists on the streets and in the studios of local artists. Your guide will be a street artist and they will show you some of the best stencil art, throw ups, mural art, paste ups, tagging, adbusting, heaven spots, burners and installations, while teaching your students who is behind the art and what their motivations are.

You’ll then get to take part in a workshop where you’ll receive instructions on various street art and graffiti techniques from both local and international artists. Pupils will then get to make their very own piece to take home with them.
