Street Art Tour – Concrete canvases

Street Art is a big thing in Hamburg. And it has been for a while. There are all sorts of styles: Stencil graffiti, wheat paste poster art, sticker art or installations. You can find the “Street Galleries” all over the city – mainly in St. Pauli, Schanze or Altona. Just keep your eyes open.

Let’s take a short exemplary tour through the vibrant (or annoying) Schanzenviertel. Since the art itself is constantly changing, I may only point you to the best canvases.

Let’s start with the alley at the Schulterblatt 18, a throughway to a courtyard soon to be a huge Hotel. Walk further down the street and on the right (Schulterblatt 62) you will find a nice throughway with a small park and playground. If you walk up the street, you will see the Rote Flora, newly decorated with “Street Art”. It might just be a little too much. A nice street for spotting is the Rosenhofstrasse, right across the street. Keep on the odd-numbered side. A lot of nice cutouts to discover here.

At the end of the street you will want to take a left and take a look across – in the alleyway (Susannenstrasse 10). Then you take a right into the Bartelsstrasse, which is a new ‘playground’. Especially at the end of this small street, you may find small treasures. Here, you’ll want to take a left in the Schanzenstrasse and walk until you are under the railway bridge. The steel pillars are our last canvas.
