While having a well noted love for the arts, Munich isn’t necessarily a city that’s known for a thriving street art scene, which could be viewed here as slightly provincial. Despite this sentiment, there are some rebellious citizens that decorate this conservative city with various tags, stencils, stickers, and freestyle paint.
One of the best areas to see a bit of the urban art or to exercise some creative licensing is on Tumblingerstraße, near the Schlachthofviertel. Large walls surrounding the Großmarkthalle are decorated with some very beautiful images. This area serves as a legal canvas for those that want to perfect their visual and artistic expression on the city streets and bring the art from museums and galleries to the proletariat.
The colors are beautiful and the tapestry of social commentary and working art space is always evolving.
What I love most is the dynamic and colorful juxtaposition on the typically maintained and austere city streets demonstrates that slight uprising that seems to bubble beneath the surface, plus it’s constantly changing.

To get there take the U3/U6 to Poccistraße or Bus 131 towards Klenzestraße / St.-Maximilian, exiting at Tumblingerstraße.
