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

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.
