Very interesting paintings. The murals are big and very good quality. We were walking along after the concert in the hall nearby and did photos.

A free art experience. Lots of interesting art painted directly onto an old strip of the Berlin wall. Easy to get to via the S Bahn, go to one station and walk to the river and along the wall and then board the S Bahn...More

Great to see this for the artwork, as a historic landmark but to also realise the size and impact of the wall. Glad we made the trip out of the city centre to see it. Great views from the bridge of other landmarks too.

very impressive and great fun walk next to the river and well off part of Berlin. It is very close to the Mercedes arena. The wall is amazing and the graffiti is so talented and worth looking at. It’s about 1 mile of the wall...More

Out on a ran around the city and found this mile- long section of the wall by accident. The area still reeks of East European auausterity although there are new builds. A much more authentic experience than the other remaining parts of the wall, especially...More

A surprisingly long, intact part of the wall that has had art added to the Eastern side. The area is undergoing a lot of regeneration so the pavement was lifted in places and sadly a lot of the artwork has been defaced. Information boards or...More

Amazing artwork, strong messages brought to light in a very colourful way. Arrive to East Side Gallery by walking across the bridge, added bonus.

This is an amazing attraction. I just wish visitors would leave it alone. Having art in public places isn't an invitation for you to add to it or chip away chunks of it. It's nice to walk the length of the wall and see how...More

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
