 Berlin

Street art played an important part in the west part of Berlin before the wall fell in 1989, and afterward, the political art form spread to the east side of the wall and are still prospering today.

You can even make your own mark on the streets of Berlin together with Sylvain with his Paint Your First Grafitti experience.

Lisbon

Lisbon is in every sense a beautiful city, and maybe because of this, street art isn’t the first thing one thinks about when Lisbon is mentioned. But Lisbon is really a bit of a hidden gem when it comes to street art. When you travel here, you will discover numerous beautiful and telling pieces of Lisbon’s history. A hot tip is to take the metro and pay extra attention when you wait or jump off at a station; these are often unexpectedly and beautifully decorated by the city’s street artists.
