The rich history of the neighborhood

The basis of each mural is a photograph of people from the respective Hanseatic city with clothing from the Hanseatic period, with a twist to the present. The twist is the contemporary beach house that Emmerik aan de Rijn is known for. The promenade is full of these typical beach houses and offers tourists and walkers peace and quiet to enjoy the view of the water. The church from the Hanze era can be seen in the background. The new bridge (from the 1960s) and the boulevard can also be seen in the image.

14 murals in the Hanseatic Cities

Murals will be realized in 14 different Hanseatic cities in the Netherlands and Germany. These Hanseatic cities are: Maasbommel, Hasselt, Elburg, Harderwijk, Hattem, Zwolle, Deventer, Zutphen, Doesburg, and four German cities Wesel, Emmerich am Rhein, Neuss and Kalkar.

The starting point for the murals is a photograph depicting two people from the city in question. These can be well-known personalities, but also other inhabitants selected for the photo motif. The historical scene depicted is combined with a related contemporary motif. An individual QR code will then be added to the mural (by the end of 2022). After scanning the code on the smartphone, the actors step out of the mural and tell a story about the city and the mural scene.
