    Graffiti on one side, wartime posters on another. Worth seeing both sides. Terrible reminder of that time. Must see in Berlin.

    It's not as rough or great as much of the other street art of Berlin, graffiti-wise. But if your looking for an alternative, colourful and both fun and dark way of experiencing history, go here.

    My favourite sight of all of the sights in Berlin. There is just so much going on around it and it seems to be a living sight since the pictures are changing occasionally. Recommended! 😊

    Really nice place and a must see if your are in Berlin but please be careful with the scammers attached in the photo. They play a theater to make you believe you can earn money!

    Wonderful street art and graffiti on a stretch of the Berlin wall. Make sure you give yourself a good few hours to take it all in! A scenic part of town as well, great looking across the water.

    Beautiful and important place, you must visit it if you're in Berlin. It's a shame that they've put ugly fences to protect the paintings. It's now really hard to take beautiful pictures of the wall.

    Though the wall is 1.3 km long, it's definitely worth the walk to see the the scattered artwork! The memorial and Visitors Centre at Bernauer Strasse are also worth visiting. Read about our visit! Read more

    A must Visit when you are in Berlin. The Graffiti wall is colorful and worth visiting. You can also little bit more about the Berlin wall history.

    About 1.5 km of Berlin's Wall remains.Some nice pieces of art, with deep political or/and social messages.The only bad thing, was the fence infront of it, because of "wall maintenance"

    The Berlin Wall East Side Gallery showcases the work of 106 international artists on a 1.3km section of the original wall. A world symbol of freedom, it’s also the world’s biggest open-air gallery.

    Not just the artwork on the side of the wall facing the road, but the photography exhibition of other partitioned places on the back is interesting too.
  • Fernando M.
    A must. Before 8 am is free of people (tourists) and you can take great pictures (also from the bridge). It starts at Ostbahnhof and finishes at Waschauerstr.

    Top attraction in Berlin. Great for a walk and observing some great murals. Get a schnitzel under the train tracks.
  • Amelia R.
    It's especially awesome early in the morning before the crowds flood the sidewalk and you can no longer take a relaxed look at the murals.

    A must during any trip to Berlin. There has been talk of knocking some if this down to build condos, so get there while you can to see it in all its awesomeness.

    Take a half an hour of your day to visit this historical monument in the heart of Berlin. You'll see history that has been made into art - you'll see real and true emotions.

    The grafittis are fare way of having the quality that the Wall deserves, but is still amazing to walk around just imagining all the history behind it (or between).

    A 1.3km walk filled with street art by many famous artists. Take some snaps. And don't forget to go to the souvenir shop where they can stamp your passport.

    A real piece of history (1.3 km of Berlin Wall) which is decorated by graphiti artists. Certainly worth the trip.

    It is considered to be the greatest open-air art gallery in the world,thanks to the hundreds of murals created by international artists in 1990, to celebrate the fall of the Wall. http://bit.ly/SSSguq

    Enjoy the murals on the road-side of the wall, then walk back on the river-side and check out the graffiti tags on the back. The bars here aren't great though. Better to cross Oberbaumbrucke instead.

    Most of the original murals have been defaced by tourists and garden-variety grafitti - although sometimes with thought-provoking or just hilarious results (e.g. the "Paris is better" scribble).

    Great sight. Must for Berlin. Sad but kinda part of Berlin are all the graffiti and tags on the wall pieces with the paintings...

    The view of the wall from the east side is unbelievable, it reminds us the fall of the wall. The street art on the wall is a must see.

    The nearly mile-long East Side Gallery transformed the longest remaining section of the wall into a colorful concrete canvas for 100+ artists from around the world.

    View open-air multimedia exhibitions depicting historical aspects of the Berlin Wall and ogle the last piece of the wall with its former border fortifications still intact.

    Please, make sure to visit this site in Berlin as soon as possible. Stretch of murals over 1 km, right near the water. Beware of crowds trying to photograph everything.

    Mixed bag here - some great artwork and some not so good. Worth sifting through the tags (not art in my opinion) for the more thought-provoking work
  • Nando R.
    The art is great and worth seeing, but make sure you visit the wall memorial at Bernauer Str if you're interested in the history of the wall. It's free and very informative!

    A must-see for anyone who's interested in the berlin wall and in street art. Bring your camera.

    Cruise the gallery with bicycle than walking, more efficient this way. Stop by at your fave art and strike a pose!

    Historical site. Spend a bit of lone time and try to taste every graffiti. They reflect the culture and history of Berlin.

    Very impressive. Take your time to grasp the meaning of each mural and take some pictures. A must visit for tourists.

    Must visit. Take train to Ostbahnhof, walk along wall, then get back on train at Warschauer Strasse. Check out Rio Grande across Spree if needing food.

    Largest standing stretch of the wall. More and more abused but a must see. Don't miss out on yaam 500m after ostbahnhof for summer chilling afterwards.

    One of the most popular touristic attraction in berlin. The longest remaining part of the wall. The graffiti is great historic and fun

    Shame on those who are writing their names or making other stupid "graffiti" on the wall. The place is must visit anyway!

    Longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall, obviously. Street art isn't the best ever but there's a great park behind it on the river.

    A little outside if the city center but worth of visiting for 100%! Gallery Wall on the Wall great idea, interesting pics.

    Visit the East Side Gallery in Friedrichshain to see an outdoor piece of art while enjoying the beginning of spring at the Berlin River Spree.

    Important historical landmark ruined by illegal graffiti and the fence the government has put in front of it to keep the graffiti away.

    This was our second visit 8 years on. Disappointed that there are mesh barriers in front, albeit to stop over-spraying, why not glass? A real shame as many of the original artworks have disappeared!

    Definitely take a look at the backside of the wall near Warschauer Straße. Depressing information about walls around the world!
