Easily the highlight of my entire trip, if I could recommend only one thing to see in Berlin this would be it. The walk alongside the wall was wonderful and surprisingly not too busy.

This place is really historic and impressive. However it's next to a highway and it was extremely cold due to the canal next to it. (It was January when we visited).

Its art and history together - must visit while in Berlin! Also you get a nice long walk and see the one of the most iconic graffiti "The Kiss". Easy accessible by public transport.

I think I expected a bit more from the East Side Gallery. It is nice to see such a large part of the wall still in tact in order to get the idea of how big it was, although of course there were a lot...More

Easy to find East side Gallery is well worth a visit when in Berlin. Gives you an insight to the fall of the wall. Artworks are respected with no tags....the colour is amazing and the wall is much longer than what I expected.

Wall art on the wall that separated the lives of people, by the river and the bridge that connected the city. They made a good of the bad and it is definitely a must see and a place to photo shoot in Berlin

Would definitely recommend checking out the east side gallery. We went on a rainy day so it wasn’t too busy, but it is a must see in Berlin!

Awesome place for art-lovers to see in Berlin. Sadly it get destroyed by some vandals occasionally. And it's FREE!

After seeing so many pictures and TV documentaries of the Berlin wall, I finally got the opportunity to visit it in person, and it was worth it. So much art, and expression, quite a sight.

When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of
the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party
hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is
palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter
are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may
find a bar with international crowds, electronic
music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other,
an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit

Hi. Go to the Warschauer Station. Come out, turn left & walk down the hill for about 5 minutes. At the road junction at the bottom you will see the start of the gallery across the road on the right.

It's not greatly lit, but you can still see it quite clearly during the night (if you have decent sight). If you want to check out the full details and/or don't have the best pair of eyes, better to go during the day ;-)

East Side Gallery area (3 Replies)
Hi, we had a weekend in Berlin last November and will be back soon for 5 full days having found the weekend far too short. We went to the East Side Gallery but fitted it in around a load of other "first time" sight seeing. We would like to spend a day over in that area seeing other things in that part of Berlin. Can anyone recommend places to see and go near the East Side Gallery? We don't tend to go "inside" but love ambling and people watching so looking for streets and squares squares...More

Looks already pretty good, I'd say. What do you intend to see or do in Grunewald forest, the Gleis 17 memorial at the station? Wouldn't it be better and easier to visit Kurfuerstendamm and Tauentzienstrasse with the KaDeWe department store in former West Berlin instead, if you already are in Tiergarten and Charlottenburg? I don't think Tuesday is packed. You'll need some time for the Topography of Terror and the Jewish Museum, but East Side Gallery, the river and Oberbaumbridge won't...More

Hey guys. So we are arriving at Berlin around 2 pm by train and our hotel is next to the Hauptbahnhof. We are leaving for Copenhagen next morning 11 am by Flixbus. Have a few questions here: 1. We are a group of 4 adults and 1 child. We booked Legoland for a slot of 4 pm to 5 pm. This I'm assuming means that we can enter any time between 4 and 5 but not before and not after. Is that correct? So my question is that if we check in at hotel and leave around 3 is it possible for us to have...More
