We went to the east side gallery and were shocked and amazed by the size of the panels, how many there were, how far they go, and some of the art on them. It's a but disappointing seeing the writing that some people have don't over the art but I guess that's what freedom is all about. Worth seeing.

This is another, important, must see in Berlin. It reminds me about that walls - sooner or later - always will fall then they try to hide people from freedom.

An awesome collection of art work and history. And such an intimidating canvas. The whole experience is very powerful!

One of those crowded places in Berlin with lots of tourists each one wanting to take a selfie and family pictures. Indeed we did take ours. We completely enjoyed. We were looking for the actual wall piece as a memory to take back home and finally found it before leaving Berlin.

We spent there about 1 hour walking around the wall taking pictures. A lot of street art can be found here. After that we went to the quater around REVEALER Str., which is close to the train station Warschauer Str., Pretty worth it to visit on Sundays, where u can find nice events as well. This whole area is about... More

Yes, just go there if you are in Berlin. Is free and is a very important part of the Europe XX century history. But do not expect anything great... It is just a wall full of paintings (some of them very artistic) covered by graffiti (not that artistic)

I've seen another section of the wall before which provides more information on the history of the wall. This portion doesn't provide any history or information, but it does provide great artwork on the wall (not original) that you can admire while walking the long stretch of wall. The artwork is definitely impressive but I feel can take away from... More

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
