This street looks a bit gloomy, but is worth a visit. We are not fans of graffiti and did not think that the ones here were particularly imaginative. We sincerely hope that having an "official" venue will help to minimise graffiti elsewhere!

How unusual - a whole street (about a city block long) devoted entirely to graffiti! The street is walled on both sides with all kinds of graffiti, some very good. I hope "artists" don't paint over the good stuff...

When I went almost the whole street was just ugly "tags" covering everything. There is supposed to be a rule that the graffitists respect earlier work. Not much sign of that tbh. Apparently, the city paint over it every once in a while & the...More

What a cool experience to walk through this amazing art installation. The social commentary is great and very cool to see young people raise their opinions through beautiful art! Must visit!

Slightly overrated in my opinion, we found this by mistake and whilst we enjoyed walking down (alongside a lot of other tourists) we much preferred following the Ghent street art sorrynotsorry map (available at the tourist office!)

A narrow alley covered with graffiti art all over. I had expected quite something, but found most drawings to be rather immature and clumsy with some notable exceptions. Maybe the graffiti season just had not started yet.

alley pointed out by our guide-with some explanations see many in many countries today it seems a bit overdone=dark & a bit messy worth a walk down the alley

An unusual splash of colour that is in contrast to the surrounding sombre cathedrals and the grey walls of the medieval castle. Apparently started as a social experiment and now makes fascinating viewing as one walks through the little alley.

This alley is one of the more interesting things I saw in the city. The graffiti was interesting and brightened the passage.
