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.

  • Enjoy the walk along the gallery, and then cross over the bridge (at the far end) to get to a place called Sage beach - right across the East Side Gallery... just to enjoy the vibe of Berlin.  more »
  • The art on the wall was great for the parents and our 4yo. A great way to see the wall. Easy to get to.  more »

  • This place is interesting and historically significant to a degree but most of the paintings on the wall are new and have been done recently. That said much of the art is very famous and well done. It is also very busy all the time so difficult to view at times. Although all in all very worth seeing.
  • Great place to get artistic interpretations of the East/West Berlin era - you’ll find wall paintings created by artists from all over the world. Sad to see that many of the paintings have been painted over by graffiti - but the section of the wall is now being renovated and I hope that Berlin will safeguard them better in the future
