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.
