The largest open-air gallery the city has ever seen is currently being built in Berlin. Even the East Side Gallery gets a little competition when multitudinously huge works of art see the light of day at the Berlin Mural Fest. Designed and painted by top international and local artists, the first impressions already promise breathtaking views! Why exactly are we looking forward to Berlin's first street art festival? That's why:

1. We have the perfect reason and the perfect route for a really beautiful Berlin walk (click here to download the map)

2. The Murals lead us through the whole city - time to explore foreign neighborhoods!

3. There will be more than 20 new fantastic murals!!! (More details can be found in the Mural Fest app, which you can download from May 19th)

4. The chance for all fans: Watch the queens and kings of the international street art scene at work (they're still painting!)

5. This part of the body is often neglected in the gym: Train your neck and neck muscles!

6.  El Bochos pink girls deserve a huge screen!

7. The city becomes more colourful - the city becomes more beautiful!

Kentucky, Paris, Lisbon. These are just a few stops on this globetrotter's journey, but only one city has been able to conquer her heart fully: Berlin, of course, because nowhere else can you cycle along a canal in the evening sun and swing over the rooftops where the Iron Curtain once divided the city. Exploring the city with open eyes: that's her mission for the blog.
