Six urban art walks

We show you where you can discover art now.

Walks are the hobby of the hour and not only keep the legs moving. Walking through Düsseldorf's neighborhoods, street art also inspires the mind: from colorful to thoughtful, new art keeps showing up on facades and windows.

Pine Street

This is where it all began: Kiefernstraße, which made headlines in the 1980s for its squatter scene, has long been known for its colorful, street-art-style facades.

Toulouse avenue

The two parks parallel to Toulouser Allee are more than just the green lungs of the still young "Quartier Central" district. A visit is also worthwhile for architecture and street art fans. For the latter, there is a lot to see, especially under the Jülich Bridge. And while you're there: Birdie & Co. serves great coffee and delicious banana bread.

Stop and smell the roses - Walk-By Exhibition

Where hair is usually cut or food served, places for art have been created in the Lockdown. "Stop and smell the roses" is the name of the action in which shop windows of six cafés and a hairdresser form a walk-by exhibition. On display are poster prints of works by students at the art academy.

Roberto aka R.F. Art

Urban mash-up artist Roberto (aka R.F. Art) designs posters from graphic elements that don't actually fit together, but when put together make new sense. He sticks them on spontaneously selected places in Düsseldorf. The works have different lifetimes. Sometimes it is only a few days, sometimes several months. So keep your eyes open, maybe you'll discover one near you. Or you might be lucky and can still see "Strange Society" in its original form at Burgplatz.


Six urban art spots await you in Bilk between Suitbertusstrasse and Bachstrasse. Among them are the side view of a woman by Irish artist Fin DAC and the "Time Travelers" at the bunker on Aachener Straße.

Works of art in the open air

Whether it's the Kö-Bogen, the Hofgarten or the Altstadt - in Düsseldorf you can also discover exciting art outside the museums. Here are our tips that will turn your next stroll through the city into your own personal Artwalk.

And after the end of the lockdown, you can discover the art in public space again with our guides on the Urban Art Walk, which lasts about two hours.
