To see some truly one-of-a-kind art, take a stroll along East Side Gallery. This 1.3 km (0.8 mi) long stretch of the Berlin Wall is near the center of the city. One of the largest remaining portions of the former border between East and West Germany, this now serves as an international memorial of freedom. You'll see that the remains of the wall are painted with provocative and thought-provoking murals, political and otherwise. This open-air art gallery is a work in progress, so you'll find that creative local artists constantly add new images. Stop by to have your picture taken in front of a living piece of history.

  • I had the privilege of visiting my and my mother’s family in Berlin late August - early September 2017. The paintings are moving and fascinating. My mother was a WW II war-bride, who married my father, an American serviceman with the US Army. My dearest brother was born in Berlin in the year 1946. This was one of the magical places we visited during our visit. I look forward to returning to visit this open air East Side Gallery to again enjoy the historical meets present-day artistry here, in addition to visiting many other interesting sites and enjoying the company of my precious family.
  • Absolutely a must-see while visiting the city of Berlin. The rest pieces of the old Berlin wall are situated next to the river and decorated with impressive art works that tell the story of a separated city of the past. Easy to reach by metro from the city center. Would recommend!
  • If you ever get to Berlin you just got to visit the wall. Take your time and bring a comfortable pair of shoes. Each painting has to b looked at in detail....I actually recommend you go to the far side of the street to view them.. you will be amazed at just how much detail you will have missed if you don't. Enjoy
  • A must see for sure! Lots of art to see and enough things nearby to do.
  • A walk down memory lane. Emotionally intense. please do not stop only in front of the most famous part, take a bit more time to go further. The wall is history, not only some kind of checklist for tourist. So take a few steps … It really worth it - and it s less crowded !!
