It is a bit hard to find and far away from the central area, but totally worth it! You cross over Charles Bridge to get here, but its is so cool. People from all around the world come just to see this colorful masterpiece. Remember to bring something to sign your name on the wall with!

This wall was a beautiful symbol of liberty on ex-Czechoslovakia, being covered with grafitti even before Lennon's death in 1980: it was all covered with colorfull, anti-war, anti-communism, liberty, love and hope messages for more than 35 years. It was one of the modern-age historic landmarks in the city of Praha, being located on a public wall, free and open... More

Worth seeing for the endless messages you can read and the beauty of the artwork. The wall was gorgeous with the fall leaves, and close to Kampa Park, where you can sit and think more about your visit to the wall.

First time I saw the wall painted was over twenty years ago when we came back to Prague after 20 years in exile. A few tourist attractions were added during those years and Lennon wall was among them. In the eighties young people would write their grievances against the communist regime in the dead of the night risking jail time.... More

Saw someone say the wall had been painted over but decided to check it out anyway and everywhere seems walkable...and well it had...people were still writing on the walls and it was still sort of interesting. Won't be long before it's covered again I guess.

Do not worry to visit this Wall, it's still changing! There was "Velvet revolution" in our country 25 year ago. Yes, the wall was a symbol of freedom etc. and it was awesome. Students of Art painted this wall on 18th November 2014 with white color. There is only one sentence "Wall is over". They want to give place for... More

Went today to finally see the famous wall - and the entire wall has been painted over white with big black letters 'THE WALL IS OVER". Very sad and many disappointed tourists for sure.

The Lennon Wall is interesting to see. It is definitely a work in progress: Lots of people come and go taking pictures, signing aaaaand (to my surprise) spray painting it in the middle of the day. If you are nearby, come early in the morning, take a picture, and on the last day of your trip, take another picture....the background... More

20 + years ago this was a real symbol of change ,now it is a real joke and a real shame that folk are desecrating this once great place.Please just paint over it and remove it from the tourist trail.

Unfortunately, the former atmosphere of this nice place in Prague has been absolutely lost. New painting of the wall degraded this symbol of freedom.
