Street Art Tour | ±6km

Walking (or biking) route along beautiful murals in downtown Dordrecht.

Street Art? In Dordrecht? Yes indeed! In recent years, the public space of Dordrecht is continuously enriched with beautiful murals. Iconoclash supports the city with impressive works of art. Curator Simian Switch selects renowned artists in which the final artworks are in harmony with the immediate surroundings and respond to the historical character of the city. The route also includes murals by other artists.

Tip

  • Make it a bike route by combining this route with the Abstract and Bird Art route and/or Murals & Street Art route. These routes connect to each other so you bike a round trip.
  • If you're going to bike the route, there are parts of downtown where you'll need to dismount. The Voorstraat is a walking street so take your bike by the hand there.

The horse on the corner of Lenghen Street is somewhat reminiscent of Dalí. The fading thin legs and checkerboard patterns mostly raise questions. Serge Kortenbroek did not give his work a title, so everyone can make up their own answers. The mural was installed in 2016 during a project by Iconoclash.

Follow the Bagijnhof and turn left past the Hema to Achterom.
