The street art tour gave a great insight into street art that you might otherwise walk past. You could tell the guide Christian had a passion for art. I would recommend the tour! The only small point of criticism/suggestion for improvement: in the case of multilingual groups, everything may be in English by arrangement so that we don't have to tell everything twice.

We enjoyed this bike tour because it was quite an adventure for us. We are not busy city cyclists nor are we knowledgeable about urban outdoor art. We learned a lot from this tour guide and the other participants who were definitely into graffiti. It was a great way to explore the city away from the tourist centre. It was over 3 hours and we found our attention waning by the end.

See Cologne with different eyes

Relaxed afternoon in Cologne's Ehrenfeld and Belgian quarters: After a brief explanation of the different street art variants, we cycled about 15 km through the two trendy districts. There were stops at special large-format wall works, but also at small, sometimes funny details and a drink in a street cafe. The friendly guide, himself an artist, adapted his tour to our level and was very open to questions and discussions. The traffic was not as bad as feared, since cycling was mostly on smaller roads. A happy informative tour, after which Cologne was perceived with a different perspective. Gladly again!
