Written by: Europeish Editors | (1) comments

Especially in Nothern Europe, they know what to do with a bucket of paint. Grey, boring buildings are easily turned into colorful pieces of city art. The streets of these ten European cities are capable of cheering up even the grumpiest tourists.

1. Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen has lots of houses in stylish pastel colors, especially in Nyhavn, or New Harbor. Lots of these houses, some of which are over 300 years old, have been turned into a cafe or restaurant during the past few decades.

2. Cinque Terre, Italy

Okay, so basically the Cinque Terre are not one, but five towns. Together, Vernazza, Monterosso al Mare, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore form the unique and colorful World Heritage site Cinque Terre.

3. Strasbourg, France

Petite France is the oldest and most colorful district in the French city of Strasbourg, which is packed with lovely timber framed houses. The smaller town Colmar, which is only a few miles away from Strasbourg, has a similar, typical Alsatian atmosphere.

  1. Reply Sis 28.12.2014 Copenhagen makes sense, but seriously; I live in Berlin and it's probably the greyest city on this planet! The piece of wall with colourful graffiti isn't enough, unfortunately.
