Street Art in Harburg: Walls can Dance

In Hamburg-Harburg, in the south of the city, the walls seem to dance. Walls Can Dance transforms the city into a unique open-air gallery of urban art and invites locals and visitors alike to go on a journey of discovery through the colours and shapes of the city. The 13 large-scale murals are just the beginning of a creative revolution that will reinvent the face of the city.
Walls Can Dance has a vision: to build bridges and unite neighbourhoods that have long been separated. Harburg has been facing the challenge of overcoming the separation between the inner city and the inland port for years. But Walls Can Dance creates a connection with every mural, every brushstroke and every shade of colour.
Walls Can Dance's artworks are more than just pictures on the wall. They are an invitation to see the city through different eyes and discover new perspectives. They are an expression of freedom and creativity that inspire people. Walls Can Dance is not only northern Germany's largest open-air gallery, but also a movement that gets the city moving and opens up new paths.
