Taking a guided bike tour during POW! WOW! Rotterdam? Check this out!

Due to the Covid-19 safety measures, the amount of participants that can join a guided ‘work-in-progress’ tour during the festival week has been limited to ten people at a time. In the calendar below, you can see how many spots are available at a given time. Click on the desired day and time, and you can make your free reservation straight away.

PLEASE NOTE: this year the tours are PER BIKE, as the distances between the murals are much longer than during past editions! Please remember to bring your own bike during the tour. We do not have bicycles available!

WHAT DOES A GUIDED TOUR COST?
The tours are done for a ‘pay-what-you-want’ price. Making a reservation is free, and at the start of the tour we will ask you to pay a contribution through PIN based on whatever amount you can miss, and what you believe is fair compensation. You get to pick the amount, which can range from zero euros to the content of Scrooge McDuck’s vault. It’s entirely up to you, and we won’t ask you any annoying questions about it afterwards.

(Scroll through the reservation form as soon as you’ve clicked an available date)

WHAT IF EVERYTHING IS BOOKED UP?
No guide available at the desired time? Don’t worry! The walking tour (and several other street art tours through Rotterdam) can also be taken with the help of the Rewriters app for iOS and Android, the free (!)POW! WOW! Rotterdam Passport guiding booklet, or by printing the map yourself (link coming soon).

Besides that, the POW! WOW! Rotterdam Passport is available for free (!) at all our partner locations (recognizable through the ‘OFFICIAL PARTNER’ sticker on their window or door) in the Afrikaanderwijk and Feijenoord neighborhood. This handy guiding booklet fits into your pocket and contains a map with all of this year’s mural paintings, along with background information about its creators.

On Sunday September 12, we will also have the POW! WOW! Rotterdam Passport guiding booklet available for free at the Afrikaanderpark. That means you can take a tour along all the artworks whenever you want, with whoever you want, at whatever time works best for you. Have fun!

Pappas Pärlor joins POW! WOW! Rotterdam lineup!

Johan Karlgren, also known as Pappas Pärlor, is a Swedish artist who creates interactive street art that makes his surroundings a lot more fun. Johan’s works are inspired by his passion – old video games, and that’s why all his characters that invade the streets are pixelated.

Pappas Pärlor’s pixel art can be usually found on our everyday objects, such as traffic signs, pipes, sculptures, fences and hundreds more. They are wisely incorporated into the functions of those objects which gives them new meanings while mixed with art. Scroll down on his IG page to see them for yourself!

From 5 – 12 september, visitors of the Feijenoord district can hunt for these beautiful additions to the streets!
