East Side Gallery, Berlin

4.3
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.

  • Our city bus had two routes, one of them led us to the East Side Gallery. The buildings on the East side show the differences in the city of Berlin. The site is well visited and at some points as the kisses of the Presidents whose phrase "My God, help me to survive this mortal love", have to queue to take pictures.

  • After the wall no longer split the town, turned her over them and painted them with artistically questionable images, which were then hochgehypt an attraction. But the hard impact that had the wall on the life of Berlin during the Division, thus became the colorful backdrop for tourists, the understanding of what caused this structure in the life of many families and friends, will be played down by colorful JUX. What you want to be great?

  • This is part if the authentic Berlin Wall that has been painted and decorated beautifully. The Wall is very long, it runs along the river and so you can both see nice views of the river and wall. Further this is a great and fun place to take plenty of pictures! The wall can serve as a fun background. This truly is a fun and historic place that you have to visit when you are in town! And the artwork is so pretty, smart and meaningful, it now is a symbolism of change and unity.
  • We originally were not going to see this sight as it was a little bit of a ways from where we were staying and going but ended up stopping on the way to the airport (via the subway). This gallery is very cool and expansive with lots of artwork and history. I loved seeing each piece of the wall and looking at the artwork. There is a nice river walkway area about halfway through the gallery where there is a shop and a nice open area. When we went there was a nice performer and a good view of the famous bridge.
