5 street art highlights that won't fade away in Hamburg

1) Die Schwarze Witwe

Graffiti artist Nychos has a weakness for animals’ insides. The huge black widow crawls across the entire façade of a head-end building in Speckstrasse in the Gängeviertel. She’s split through the middle, showing the organs that conceal poison and thread. The beast keeps a warning vigil over the artists’ quarter – and keeps the wrecking balls away.
