GERMANY: Streetart Map Rheine – Ems Side Gallery, Bodelschwing Bridge and Old Train Station

Rheine is a Westphalian city on the River Ems near the city of Münster and the Dutch border. It is more of a small town with around 80,000 inhabitants, but still with some beautiful street art and graffiti in the urban space. Well-known artists such as MAD C, VON SCHULZ, BUNTE WÄNDE and INNERFIELDS delivered great murals for the Ems Side Gallery. In addition, the ADL CREW aka ADLETICS is strongly represented here with great graffiti. The open spray area at the Bodelschwing Bridge and the lost place at the old train station with urbex atmosphere are highly recommended. Photographer Holger Peter was visiting Rheine, initially we only wanted to make a smaller article. But then so many photos came together, a total of 634 pics with 83 individual pages, enough to make a map.
