East Side Gallery, Berlin

4.2
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.

  • Destination East side Gallery in Berlin. You had walked from the city, so it took quite some time. Wish two people kissing picture can see them clearly.

  • The East Side gallery was definitely on my to do list while in Berlin and it didn't disappoint. Some works of art to see for free! There are some really good pieces of artwork and it's well worth a lo...  more »
  • Go to Berlin and not go the section of the wall where several artists have reflected his art after the fall of the wall would be a serious mistake. You must give yourself the time go and walk this stretch (which is not as long) and better if do you it with a guide who will be telling you every detail.

  • Cool area, cool atmosphere. Be ready to spend time there and enjoy the amazing street art works. You will enjoy some of the most famous murals in Berlin. This is a long part of the wall and you can find the double wall along the walking. Take in consideration it will be full of tourists, so it’s better to go early morning.
  • When you travel in Berlin, you have to visit East Side Gallery. The arts on the wall are great and amazing. Some of arts give inspiration. Between the walls, you can see so beautiful Fluss River. Therefore, you should take time to relax near the river, not only watch East Side Gallery. I am sad because some people drew graffiti or sentences. They make the awesome arts mess up. You can fine the picture which I explain. There is rubbish on an art. This situation shows us cultural awareness of citizens. I hope some people are inhabited to do bad things.
  • Very interesting to see, specially if you are into art and graffiti. It's the longest lasting piece remaining of the wall of Berlin, approximately 1.3 KM long. Cafes and bars can be found around, and you can sit by the river and enjoy the view, specially when the weather is nice. I just wished there was more information about the area and that particular part of the wall there (in English of course).
  • Exciting open air exposition of original street art on a 5km long remain of the Berlin Wall. Heart touching art messages regrading freedom, peace and life value. Authentic piece from one of the darkest periods of modern history. Nobody remains indifferent to the voices of the authors, victims and the history itself
  • The wall is a part of history and a piece of art in Berlin. Well located, the East Side Gallery is one of the most important place in Berlin. You need to see it. The metro is at 5 minutes and you can walk on the shore of the spree
