The Berlin districts Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain boast graffiti, paintings, paste-ups, and stencils. From the 1970s to 1989 the west side of the Berlin Wall was home to graffiti, paintings and wall newspapers. Since the reunification of Germany, Berlin has become home to a community of international street artists. The area's ramshackle buildings and blind walls gave rise to a vibrant street art scene. It has become one of Europe's street art strongholds. A stroll through the Mitte, Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain districts will yield a bounty of public art. In recent years street art has even been featured in Berlin exhibitions. But the streets of the city remain the best showcase. What makes it more fun is that there's always the risk the art will disappear.

The art suggested on this tour is quite underwhelming, we saw far better elsewhere in the city. Though the walk was still quite nice through some cool neighbourhoods.

Super itinerary at the start. But after crossing the rails, take East Side Gallery instead. Quite poor in street art at the end of the route.

PLEASE READ IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME IN BERLIN! I am from Berlin and for that I feel capable of giving an appropriate review on this one. First of all the art you will see on this trail is great. However the art is also pretty far apart from each other for which I’d recommend taking the subway inbetween. There are other areas that have more art in one place (e.g. Unrban Nation U1 Nollendorfplatz). The main reason I’d never give 5 stars on this trail is because of where it is located. It is a very dangerous area of the city. Even for me being from Berlin and knowing my way around, had 2 bad encounters on this trail. Furthermore I think it is a petty that the „Markthalle Neun“ is left out. It is right next to the trail and definitely the best thing about this particular area. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t go, because after all this is part of a authentic Berlin experience, but I’m definitely saying: don’t go by yourself and watch out for your belongings. With that being said, I wish you all a great time in Berlin.
