Berlin is the Capital city of Street Art, invaded by a large and eclectic collection of Murals, Graffiti and stencils.
The artistic boom was born after the fall of the wall. You can find creative expressions of all types, sizes and materials decorating the public spaces of Berlin. It’s an open air gallery created by well known and annonymous artists.
The German Capital is so big that’s almost impossible to see it all in just one visit. As soon as you get there, you already know you will have to go back. I’ve selected my favourite legal and illegal pieces collected while chasing street art around Friedichshain, Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg and Mitte, but there are much much more!

Some recommended spots to immerse in streetart and a creative atmosphere
Urban Spree is an artistic space in Friedrichshain. You can find here, not only street art but also live music and other types of creative expressions. This super cool place is home to many festivals and events.
A magic place run by a nonprofit organisation where art and creativity are allowed to flourish. There are shops, offices and bars. It’s bizarre and cool. Very recommended for sunset drinks.
Yaam stands for “Young African Art Market”. It is much more than a club. Surrounded by Jamaican Caribbean vibes, you can enjoy of delicius food, drinks, great music, cool art and even a beach! It’s a totally laid-back chilling place where “stress” is an unknown word.
If you look up, you will find here an amazing mural from the Portuguese artist Vhils
