Lörrach's gallery for legal graffiti is unique in Germany. Stretching over almost one and a half kilometres, the Bridge Gallery covers the 56 concrete pillars of the highway bridge of the A 98. It runs from the gravel pit, through the Grütt Park all the way to the banks of the Wiese. The outdoor art gallery is intersected by the train line and the B 317.

Since mid-2010, sprayers and street artists of all ages have been designing their free walls. The idea started with young graffiti artists from the region and Lörrach's youth parliament.

One section of the gallery is reserved for art from further afield: here internationally active top artists contributed to giant images, some up to 20 metres high. Young, local sprayers rub shoulders with the graffiti stars. It is this symbiosis that made the Bridge Gallery so famous.

You can reach the Bridge Gallery with the S5 or S6, Lörrach-Haagen/Messe station. The best route is through Grütt Park. By the way: repeat visits are worth your while, because here change is part of the programme. Otherwise, it wouldn't be graffiti!
