Street Art Tours
Follow a guide on a walking tour through the streets and alleys of Berlin to discover an ever-changing world of creative, expressive paintings and paste-ups from artists such as Blu, Osgemeos, and ROA—considered by many in the scene to be among the most skilled street artists in Germany.
