The wall is a beautiful tribute to a wonderfully talented musician. There was life and love reflected on this wall. For us it was a "must see" and am glad we found it. The walk locating it was lovely.

I went here after reading about this being a photo hotspot and yes, it is worth a snap but you'll will be let down if you go with high expectations. Its a walk-by visit only. Most of the graffiti here now has taken over from the original lennon iconic art and so I wouldnt expect too much.

I saw the spot at my map when I bought it but I was not interested of going, i'm not a fan and don't really listen to them. A few days after, I got lost while walking different paths and that lead me to Lennon Wall. I was a little bit worried 'cause I couldn't locate where I was in... More

While the wall itself is interesting to see and to read the messages, it's also important to know the history behind it and how it played an important role in the struggle for freedom. Once you know the history it will have a much greater impact on you, regardless of whether you are a John Lennon fan or not. Well... More

The wall itself is nothing special. But it's not just about the wall. The place has a unique atmosphere. If you read the messages you realize that not all people are bad.

A charming, cool setting in a peaceful neighborhood for reflecting on past resistance and current hopes for peace. Colourful and evolving.

This is a must see spot. Very interesting to see in the day and at night. Our bike tour at night had us stop by the Lennon Wall. Our tour guide brought a pen and took a picture of us as we add some verbiage to a very chaotic space. We also saw a group of (kids) climbing on each... More

Once a normal wall, since the 1980s it has been filled with John Lennon-inspired graffiti and pieces of lyrics from Beatles' songs. In 1988, the wall was a source of irritation for the communist regime of Gustáv Husák. Young Czechs would write grievances on the wall and in a report of the time this led to a clash between hundreds... More

Wouldn't recommended if you don't know much about John Lennon. You can take some funky pics but that's about it. Wouldn't stay longer than 10 minutes though.

A very beautiful place to visit and take some pictures. But do not visit it on weekends because it will be too crowded and it will be almost impossible to captured a good picture of the wall.
