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.

  • Read this was worth a visit-the eastern side of a section of the Berlin Wall, decorated by artists after the fall of the wall in 1989.This was as a statement, given that prior to the fall, to damage.....  more »
  • A very easy way to spend an hour or two and a nice walk. While styled as graffiti most of the gallery is professionally produced murals with a variety of messages to consider. Some you’ll probably...  more »

  • This is a big open-air gallery in Berlin. The wall is 1316 m long (the largest in the world) and located near the center of Berlin. It is a heritage protected landmark. As I read earlier, this wall has a three million visitors per year. I enjoyed walking besides the wall. It has got a powerful energy indeed. It’s worth your time there
  • An awesome walk along the river with fantastic, intriguing street art to look on the wall along the way! It’s a great way to appreciate the history and culture of Berlin. Unfortunately I can’t give 5 stars as they were doing construction which interferes with your experience and view of the wall. If you’re visiting Berlin, I would still recommend a visit - I would also recommend going earlier in the morning as it’s much quieter and you can get some great pictures.
  • Great to visit and see a little more of the Berlin Wall. It’s a little far from all the other touristic places in the city but I would say it’s totally worth it. You can also appreciate the graffiti culture that Berlin has, a form of art unique to the city and its people. Great to see all the representations they have about different topics and issues in the society. If you go in the day light it’s also located in a great place just to walk by, the river gives it a nice touch so you can also appreciate a nice and different view of the city.
  • If you’re visiting Berlin, I highly recommend checking out East Side Gallery to learn some history and culture. Great work from the artists, it’s a nice walk along the river with quiet a selection of artwork. Some pieces get more tourist attention than others but I found some of the less busy ones to be the most interesting.
  • Cool place!! Lots of street art. Nice view on a different side, close to water. There are a few cafes with beer and food. Summer time probably will be the best time and weather to relax there and take very good pics.
