Great urban art scene with a knowledgeable guide

Dresden has a great urban art scene and the guide, Danilo, chose the best pieces, after consulting with me about my preferences. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the urban art scene, all the artists and artists groups. In addition, I got to see the real street scene in outer new town - a vibrant and colorfl neighborhood with a life of its own. I highly recommend this tour.

Great guide, lots of inside knowledge

Loved this tour. Our guide had planned out a tour of the history of street art in Dresden, including some of the cities best known murals, down to hidden gems on buildings and behind trees. His knowledge of the artists and the artwork was impeccable. My only suggestion, having done a couple of other street art tours in other European cities, is that the description emphasis should emphasise that this is about murals and sponsored artwork, not really illegal street art (though we did see some of those too). Other than that though, a great way to discover this city from a local street perspective.

Die Streetart-Tour hat uns gut gefallen, obwohl die 3 Stunden etwas lang sind. Es sollte vermerkt werden, dass ggf. mit ÖPNV gefahren wird. Der kurze Halt für WC und ggf. etwas zu trinken war hilfreich. Die vielfältigen Varianten von Streetart wurden anschaulich vermittelt. Was früher nur als Schmiererei erschien hat bei mural art Bedeutung und Hintergrund, auch das ist Kultur!
