Urban and Street Art tour

Urban en Street Art!

If you’re fond of creativity in public space, you will love this creative cycling tour of Ghent. You will explore a city that inspires with surprising street art, contemporary art, artistic projects and art with a capital G.

 

All you need to know about this tour

Ghent creates. Ghent inspires. Ghent is alive. All that is clear from this cycling tour during your trip to Ghent. On this guided tour, you will discover more than on an ordinary walk through the city. At the same time, you experience the sense of freedom which makes visiting a city so enjoyable.

 

This free spirit can also be seen in the many works of urban and street art. Ghent is the city of ROA, one of the most influential street artists in the world according to The Huffington Post. But you will also discover other great names from the street art scene: Bué The warrior, Chase, Sam Scarpulla, Pol Cosmo…

 

The city has created several so-called free zones where street artists can express their creativity. The tour takes you along numerous contemporary works of art such as ‘Mystic Leaves‘ by Jessica Diamond and ‘The Virgin’ by Michaël Borremans.

 

When it comes to architecture, the city has some surprises in store as well: from Henry Van De Velde’s modernism to contemporary and award-winning architecture such as city library De Krook. A local will take you to other locations too.

 

The tour begins with a short introduction, a test ride with our bikes and some practical arrangements. Enjoy the ride!
