If ever in Berlin you must not miss Berlin Wall Remains East Side Gallery - it is so important landmark of contemporary history but street art as well! You can see legendary graffiti, but also understand the division that once existed in Berlin and the world. This is landmark of 20th century.

Despite the fact that it is an original piece of the Berlin Wall, and contains some very good artwork, it is not a talking point while in Berlin. My hotel was located just away from the East Side Gallery and I will be quite honest with you when I say I seen this and walked by it when I was... More

Impressive modern art and peace drawings. It was a pleasure to walk next to the wall and admire the artworks.

Loved wandering along the Berlin Wall in this part of the city. Great history - quite sad and great artist work. Cool area of Berlin to spend an afternoon in coffee shops and enjoy a cocktail after too.

Except the most famous paintings and the fact that it's the rest of original Berlin Wall i think it's not the highlight of Berlin.

This is both history and art. It is a good place to see a large section of ‘the wall’ and imagine how it was these days. At the same time, it is the artists tribute to the history and the people. Recommendable.

Lovely to see all of the iconic artwork along the wall; the only downside (besides it being winter and frigidly cold) was that it can be difficult to get a pic of one of the pieces of art because so many people are trying to get pictures of themselves with the walls.

We spent time walking along the east side gallery on our recent visit to Berlin, the art was very interesting, I would say it's a must see if you have time.

This is a nice walk along a fairly long remnant of the wall, decorated with art and graffiti. Easy access to public transport at either end, from Ostbahnhof station and Warschauer Str. Station. My teenage daughter enjoyed it, taking more pictures there than anywhere we went in Berlin.

Went on a walk with a friend and happened to stumble across the East Side Gallery. Lovely wall paintings, we took a few pics here.

Staying in Friedrichshain

Neighborhood Profile
Friedrichshain
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 buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.
