Discover South-Lower Saxony’s largest Open-Air-Gallery
You may not expect it, but it’s true: Our romantic Einbeck has been in the spotlight of the international street-art-scene for years. Since 2014, every year a lot of well-known street art artists come to Einbeck from all over the world to make our beautiful timber-framed town even more beautiful and interesting with their colourful artwork. Nowadays, we already count with 60 ArtSpots - some of them enormous – on walls of buildings and houses! Would you like to have little glimpse? Click here and have a look.
Everything started out with the motto “Our city should be more colourful”. So, the initiative for children and adolescents “YoungArt in Einbeck” created the event “SAM – Street-Art-Meile in Einbeck” (Street-Art-Mile in Einbeck). In the meantime, this has grown into quite an art festival that is known far beyond Germany’s borders. A lot of local and regional companies, foundations, the politics and a great number of volunteers help to make it happen every year.
In summer, mostly on a weekend at the end of August, artists come to Einbeck to conquer new ArtSpots. In addition, there is a colourful framework programme with live music, fun and activities for young and old as well as street-art tours with guides and also by bike. But our open-air-gallery is not only open on one weekend, it is always open for you and worthwhile an excursion all-year-round.
