East Side Gallery, Berlin

4.4
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 love what they have done with this remaking part of the wall. The contemporary artwork is awesome, some cooler than others. I could have spent ages looking at it all  more »
  • there are a lot of artists painting their part of the wall, but with no real context, it is sometimes to understand the artist's meaning. I wouldn't come especially.  more »
  • Before leaving Berlin, we headed to the east gallery after breakfast, as it is located close to the hotel we stayed at. This part of the wall was painted by artists from several countries, and...  more »

  • Visiting this place is actually a good way to enjoy Berlin and learn a bit about its history. But it might be really crowded as it’s very touristic. The art works here are very interesting and enlightening also the area is quite good place to just strolling around.
  • Even cooler than the pics look! It’s really amazing how much history this city holds and this wall is a representation of just one segment. When you leave the Ostbahnhof, the wall is pretty much right outside the station. The well-known kiss painting is located pretty close to where this pin is located, so it’s just a few minutes walk from the station.
  • What a wonderful experience, I expected a musem but now, a giant wall spanning about a mile and half, with all different takes on all art, all through the time, its beautifully amazing to see this! And it was so hot this day! At one end you have the norm, guys selling food and ice cream and than along the way people selling homemade beads and what not. This being rather major part of history just shows the struggle people had to go through though
  • Loved the graffiti! Some of them are so good that describing them is not possible and you have to see them in real. Wall is painted from both sides so make sure that you view the graffiti on both sides. Side by the wall is river side park where you can walk or seat and enjoy the river view. Some people perform at nearby area you can enjoy that as well.
  • Read the history. Segregated over night. Built after WWII. Immerse yourself in the area and the understanding that flows through it. Draw your own conclusions. Human unity has to be the way forward
