The stories behind the paint

For some it is art, for others it is rubbish. What is the policy of the city with regard to graffiti? Learn everything about ‘tags’ and ‘pieces’ and leave your own signature.

More about this tour

You can recognize a lively city by its street art. If this is correct then Ghent is more flamboyant than ever! The streets of the rebellious city have always been a beloved canvas for imaginative pictures full of colour and emotion. During this interactive tour you will discover the history of this oldest and most obstinate form of expression. You hear the stories behind the marvellous murals, the crazy stickers and the shoes which are dangling above the streets. Bet that after this tour you will look at street art with completely different eyes?
