Visitors who can take advantage of the Mulhouse City Pass or discover good gourmet addresses, through the Wackes Gourmet Walk.
New visit to street art
For tourists and locals alike, OTC also offers several guided tours on various topics, some of which have almost become ‘classics’, such as the ‘Urban Poetry, Street Art of Mulhouse’ tour. Presented every month, starting May 28, following in the footsteps of Mulhouse’s street art, this visit always welcomes a large audience and changes its course regularly.
And as the street art gain in Mulhouse continues, OT is offering, as of Saturday, May 14th, a new guided tour entirely dedicated to the urban art project at the Kinepolis cinema parking lot. Called Graffitipolis by Gallery Orlinda Lavergne, MUR Mulhouse and MUR Colmar, this project has enabled dozens of artists to take over the building to produce frescoes and graffiti that can be detected in all weathers. Visits are organized on Saturday mornings, when the car park is empty (Saturday 14 May, 11 June, 16 July, 13 August … 1:30 – 7 euros, by reservation).
