About East Side Gallery, Berlin

The East Side Gallery consists of a section of the Berlin wall that still remains in the city which was decorated in 1990 as a Museum of Peace. The wall depicts images which are heartening, shocking and at times controversial created by artists in 1990.

This wall and gallery are an extremely important part of modern history and hence are an amazing place to visit. Just viewing the art-work on the walls is a surreal experience. It tells tales of the past in the language of the future. The wall is currently undergoing restoration. Quite a few cracks have formed in the old wall and to avoid any further damage or collapse the wall is being restored. As a result the art is also being re-done. This initiative taken by the artists forms the crux of the East Side Gallery. Included in trip plans for spending 1 day in Berlin or for 2 days Berlin itinerary.

East Side Gallery, Berlin Reviews

  • This is the longest remaining part of the Berlin Wall, and you can walk along the 1300 meter it covers. Once a sign of repression, this segment of the wall now has become an art exhibition for graffiti. Some of the drawings are amazing and I enjoyed looking at every segment as I walked. I wish there was more information available about the artists though. It's easy to get here by the underground but there really isn't much to do here besides looking at the wall. It isn't a particularly interesting area of Berlin, except for the large Mercedes showroom on the other side which I enjoyed. All in all, definitely worth a visit if you are in Berlin and interested in the history of the wall.

  • You can’t leave Berlin without seen it! Its a shame to see part of the artworks in the wall to be vandalized by tags and so. But luckily its a small part, beside that it was a wonderful experience to see and walk! Its 1,5 km long so be ready to take a nice stroll, also theres a lot of people so be patience and respect the others before taking a picture. Beware that there’s a group of kinds asking for money for a supposedly charity for the blind/deaf/etc... its false! They just want to take your money!

  • Definitely worth a stroll. The artwork on the pieces of the Berlin wall are fantastic and compelling. It was much longer than I anticipated, but I enjoyed going along the whole thing. We went at night, which was cool, but I think it would be equally compelling anytime.

  • The East Side Gallery is one of the last bits of Berlin Wall that is still intact. 1300 metres to be exact. This 1300 meter piece of wall has been used as object for graffiti art. While one side of the wall features famous artwork, the other side features some information about the Berlin Wall and more. The neighbourhood around the wall isn't that interesting but the wall itself should be interesting enough. I walked next to the wall and was mostly focused on the artwork, some of it very interesting and some of it less interesting. Be aware that taking a picture of a bit of wall might be a bit difficult, as it's usually somewhat crowded. The East side gallery is easy to reach. I was able to walk from one to the other metro station via the East Side Gallery.

  • The longest part of the Berlin Wall, (that remains). I would definitely recommend having an idea of how this places looked like before 40 years to make your trip more exciting. Also, it’s free and all you have to do is just walk in , no gate no tickets. Also , try to have a background on some of the paintings on the wall.
