To see some truly one-of-a-kind art, take a stroll along East Side Gallery. This 1.3 km (0.8 mi) long stretch of the Berlin Wall is near the center of the city. One of the largest remaining portions of the former border between East and West Germany, this now serves as an international memorial of freedom. You'll see that the remains of the wall are painted with provocative and thought-provoking murals, political and otherwise. This open-air art gallery is a work in progress, so you'll find that creative local artists constantly add new images. Stop by to have your picture taken in front of a living piece of history. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to East Side Gallery and many more Berlin attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Berlin travel route builder site.

  • I had the privilege of visiting my and my mother’s family in Berlin late August - early September 2017. The paintings are moving and fascinating. My mother was a WW II war-bride, who married my father, an American serviceman with the US Army. My dearest brother was born in Berlin in the year 1946. This was one of the magical places we visited during our visit. I look forward to returning to visit this open air East Side Gallery to again enjoy the historical meets present-day artistry here, in addition to visiting many other interesting sites and enjoying the company of my precious family.
  • Absolutely a must-see while visiting the city of Berlin. The rest pieces of the old Berlin wall are situated next to the river and decorated with impressive art works that tell the story of a separated city of the past. Easy to reach by metro from the city center. Would recommend!
