Discover the hip neighborhoods of Cologne by bike!
Away from the bustling city center, you dive deep into the Belgian Quarter and Ehrenfeld on our “Cologne Streetart Bike Tour”.

As you will be cycling in a small group with private guides, we can arrange your bike tour according to your personal wishes. You can spend plenty of time interpreting the large murals and finding the smallest stickers, tiles and paste-ups, or simply unwind in the sun with a delicious coffee or a tasty ice cream.

What to expect on our „Cologne Streetart Bike Tour“
Our private guided “Cologne Streetart Bike Tour” takes you far away from the inner-city art museums on an alternative route through the colorful urban art galleries of Cologne. Together with your guides you will explore the “Belgian”, one of the hottest neighborhoods of the city, and Ehrenfeld, the former industrial area and today one of the hippest places in Cologne!
Since you are cycling through Cologne as a private group, you are welcome to determine the course of your bike tour. Our guides will adjust to your wishes and ideas and make your bike tour a fantastic experience!
One of a kind streetart in the “Belgian” and in Ehrenfeld
En route you see colorful murals, quirky stickers and tiles, amusing paste-ups and stencils that inspire you to stop and think. Whether international artists like Inti, Roa or Ethos, or local legends like Captain Borderline, the Banana Sprayer, or Joiny – many a streetart masters have left their traces in the Belgian and Ehrenfeld districts. But attention! The streetart scene is often short-lived and does not always evolve in a legal way. Where a work of art still sparkled yesterday, something completely different can be found today!
Best of urban art and urban culture by bike
Your guides will take you to the hot spots at Brüssler Platz, Helios Straße or the famous colorful Ehrenfeld train station and explain the latest trends in urban development and gentrification and how urban art contributes to it. Of course, you will also gain a lot of interesting information about the art scene, the creation, techniques and background of the artworks and have plenty of time to look at everything, to let it influence you, and to take pictures – an advantage of the private bike tour!
Please note that our “Streetart Tour” does not follow a predefined itinerary and Cologne’s lively scene makes every tour a one-of-a-kind experience!
