Largest Mural in Europe
Amsterdam - In 1986 Keith Haring painted a 40-foot-tall mural on a facade of a brick building in Amsterdam while he was in town for his exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum. For 30 years the wall was covered by weatherboarding, but in 2018 the wall has been revealed again.

In the summer of 2018, the insulation plates were removed and the work can be seen again by everyone.
