“New life”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The remnants of the wall provide a canvas for inspiring and thought provoking art and give a feel for the hope that the youth had with this dark past behind them. A very engaging memorial that is appealing to younger generations.

“Take the kids”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

A great section of the original wall.
I'm not sure who chose the artists but there is a very different quality of painting.
I think it's about time some of the paintings were changed.
All in all I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and the history.
I regret not seeing the wall before 1989.

The art work on this 1km section of the wall is fantasic.
