The walls offer a great way to see the city, and sunrise on a morning jog. Impossible to get lost, and well maintained!

In January 2013, I did visit Derry for the second time. The first time was in october 2012. What hit me
immediately during this last visit, was that something was missing. In october the walls were covered with republican slogans. Now the walls were cleaned and looked a bit bare to me. Whether the slogans add something positive to the site or not, is a question of personal taste and maybe political preference. But for me the slogans added flavour to the site. The slogans showed how people feel and made the citywalls unique for Derry, something that cannot be found anywhere else. Now the medieval walls look as the medieval walls of so many other medieval city walls in Europe, still beautiful, but less unique then it used to be.

Still, a walk over the citywalls is worth the effort. To get on the citywalls not only stairs are available, but also slopes, making the walls also accessible for wheelchair-users. This is something that is rare, for old citywalls, usually have "stairs only".

Definitely worth a look. We went and really enjoyed! Fantastic history to the whole thing, we really enjoyed the peace bridge also and the new cultural space - this is ahead of Derry hosting the City of Culture 2013.

You can get a good view looking down at Free Derry from the walls. But apart from some good views there is not much else special about the walls; they are like that of any other old European city.

The walls of Derry are a great way to see the city. The city is very small, so it doesn't take long to go around them.
