East Side Gallery is one of the very few remains of the Berlin Wall, that still excist. It streches along the river Spree in a lenght of some 1,3 km, between Oberbaumbrucke and Ostbahnhof. Wetween 1990-2000 the wall remains was decorated with grafitty from artist. Thus it is also a very long art gallery. To get there is easy. By... More

Iconic art work on the wall looked like it was probably amazing when it hadn't been obscured by the awful graffiti that covers the majority of it. Considering what the wall represents it is a shame that the bleakest memory it conjured up for me was when I saw the tag "WEST SUFFOLK COLLEGE 2012" ...I went there. It was... More

This east side gallery is very different from the other side of Berlin wall in the city. Its painted by artists giving strong messages. The wall is long, can even take up to an hour to walk around. There are no shops around it, its at the road side. Plus its quite far from the other tourist attractions, entirely different... More

East side gallery shows you the remains of the Berlin Wall. It takes a little walk from Berlin Mitte, but it's more than worthwhile. Beautifulle decorations by different artists, expressing their feelings about this part of Germany's history. Just go there!

The remnants of the Berlin Wall as no one ever expected to see them. A display of modern 'street' art well worth looking at. Approximately a mile long the art work depicts anything and everything about this weird and wonderful world. A MUST SEE on any visit to Berlin.

I love the East Side Gallery and revisit every time I go to Berlin. This longest remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall has been turned over to artists who have created a fabulous array of different works here on this riverside stretch of wall between the OstBahnhof and the Oberbaumbrücke. Look out for the famous Fraternal Kiss by Dmitry Vrubel... More

So cool, it's long and historical. I recommend renting a bike. Also, you could grab a Club Mate from a street vendor like a local and up your energy for the walk.

Amazing to see the wall, great part of Berlin's history, and it gives you a real insight into living in east, and west Berlin. Bit of a trek to get there but most definitely worth it.

...great atmosphere, nice people, good food, good for modern art lovers. I recommend to visit on Sunday and check out the markets. Don't miss brunch in one of those young, cool bars and even if you are over 40 it is a totally young and refreshing feeling.
