Berlin is the perfect city for everybody who is crazy about culture and art! Countless museums, galleries and daily new exhibitions leave nothing to be desired. But even Berlin’s streets themselves are art: street art artists from all over the world, as well as local stars of the scene, have turned Berlin’s house walls into canvases and decorated the city with larger-than-life works of art. There are so many things to discover all over the city! But what is the best way to go, to see all of Berlin’s street art?
How about an interactive street art map? The guys from DEFSHOP have put together on a map the 46 best murals of Berlin so you can see at a glance where they are and how to get there. The only two things you have to do is first, to choose one of the 4 routes in the menu of the street art map and second, buy a metro ticket. The selected murals can all be reached using a single underground or suburban railway line. By clicking on the icon, you will not only find the exact address and the nearest S- or U-Bahn station, but also more detailed information about the artist and exciting backgrounds to the artworks. The perfect way to do a street art tour on your own and get to know Berlin’s most beautiful murals!
As already mentioned there are 4 different routes to choose from. The first one is the U1 route which goes through the heart of the city and contains 14 murals. The secound one is the U8 route that leads from the North to the South of Berlin and hides 11 murals. Number three is the city railway route that runs right through Berlin along the Spree river. Last but not least you can take the Tegel route, situated a little off the beaten track, in the very north of Berlin. The underground line U6 starts right where the street art objects are located and the 6 impressive murals lie close together in a residential area.
All in all the interactive street art map is a great tool to discover the abundance of street art in Berlin for free and with no long journeys. It should be added, however, that you cannot download the map. So you better have a look on the map before you start and plan your route as it might not work on your way. You also should keep in mind, that the murals are not exactly located at the S- or U-Bahn station and you have to walk a bit to reach it. Some of them are also very hidden so keep your eyes open and don’t miss it!
