Loved Grafitti Street. Amazing artwork down a short alley. Grafitti over walls and on pavement. A lot to see and very colourful. As someone interested in photography it was worth seeking out.

Always changing, always new details, this is a «golden detour» when in Gent. Worth finding and spend some time in looking at the details of the «graffiti du jour». Brilliant concept!

Walls covered in layers of graffiti. There are some interesting art work but unfortunately most of it were ruined by less talented graffiti artist spraying random letters and images over everything.

An interesting side street with apparently everchanging graffiti displays but other cities have better.

It was a colourful sight and exciting to be able to say I have been there. I would not go out of way to see it, but if you do pass it make sure not to miss it

Loved the artworks on the walls of the street. Very vibrant and eye catching. Would visit again as the artwork will have changed.

There is some great art here, but the dog poo takes away from the ambiance! Changes nearly daily so if you like a picture then take a photo of it. It is opposite the back door of the Novotel Hotel.

Too bad we didn't see many huge paintings when we walked past. I would say it's mostly tags. But still, it's a refreshing street in Ghent
