Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Break out your camera to capture the spectacular graffitied walls and building facades of Kiefernstraße in Flingern-Süd, the center of street art in Düsseldorf. This formerly rough-and-tumble area was once a haven for squatters and gangs in the 1980s; they’ve since cleared out but the radical streak is still alive and well in the murals spray-painted on the long stretch of wall that runs along much of the street. Opposite the wall and running the entire length of Kiefernstraße are wildly colorful and intricately patterned building exteriors painted by squatters and artists, many of whom now have apartment leases here. This street is also where you’ll find Düsseldorf’s last remaining punk rock club, AK47, at Kiefernstraße 23, which has been around since 1983.
