we came here today & was blown away. It's a mile long of graffiti/street art along the wall. It's all art that is full of political pieces or thought provoking quotes. We both really enjoyed this & can't wait to come back in the summer !!

I went in the winter, after dinner at about 9pm. It was quite dark but the pictures could be clearly seen. It is just beside a busy road and was well-lit with street lamps. There were a few people walking along the East Side Gallery too but I thought it was pretty safe. The Berlin Wall was very long and... More

No trip to berlin would be complete without some parts of the Berlin Wall... Not an awful lot left now but worth a look. Good train connections to get there and a walk along a still slightly run down area.. Some very good art on the wall... Can't even begin to imagine what it must have been like to live... More

Berliners have expressed their sentiments about having been a divided city on this remnant of wall. As one can tell, experiences and sentiments regarding this time of "cold war" differ.

I am an Ex Berliner and I found it sad how some tourists treat the the art. It is a meeting point that talks about an old Berlin and a new Berlin, have the 1.335 km walk

Take a visit and marvel at how different artists give their take on different subjects, such as world peace, love and random looking thoughts. Take a walk along the gallery and see another part of the puzzle called Berlin. When you exit the station, go left and head towards the river.

After reading the reviews thought we would take the time to walk out as we had a spare morning. It is worth a look BUT only if you have a spare few hours so much more to see in Berlin before you make the trip out to east side gallery. to be fair it was a very cold Sunday in... More

If you imagine that how many kilometers the wall had split Berlin into two halfs - it is amazing and showering. Next to East-Side hotel and the famous bridge you will find THE picture of the "Brother kiss between Leonid Brezhnev and Erich Honecker" - how the socilaistst sticked together!!!

A nice way to give a more friendly face to what remains of the wall, with all the artists works, on the river side, it's a place where to look at the history but without being too sad about it. I'ts just in front of the Ostbahnhof, so really easy to reach.

Some of the 1 km. of art panels are intricate, delicate & others are very much making a statement - most, very interesting. Whatever, they are created by members of the community. Unfortunately, other people are not as respectful of divergent views & have tagged/ graffitied too many panels. This is the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall &... More
