Discover Rotterdam's Street Art: A Guided Urban Canvas Tour

Rotterdam is always looking towards the future! The proof of this is the skyscrapers, the epitome of scientific thought, and the phenomenal leap that this city has made in the last 70 years. But beyond its large-scale projects, fantastic architecture, and groundbreaking innovations, the city harbors another equally intriguing side—street art in Rotterdam that lives its own life. And once you lift the veil, you will realize how many interesting, fascinating, and important things it was hiding.

Rotterdam is literally breathing street art. From classic graffiti to street installations, from large murals to tiny mosaics—Rotterdam has it all. There's room for both anonymous vandals and great Picasso. Rotterdam's street art is an incredible storyteller, and it will unveil the most astonishing, touching, and fascinating stories unknown to anyone else. Rotterdam street art tour offers a fantastic opportunity to explore these visual narratives up close. We invite you to dive into this enthralling world!
