East Side Gallery

The East Side Gallery is the longest remaining piece of the Berlin Wall and today acts as a memorial to freedom the world over.

The wall in the East Side Gallery is almost a mile long (1.3 kilometers) and consists of 106 paintings, all painted on the east side of the wall which was , before its collapse, completely empty.

Work started on the paintings shortly after the destruction of the wall in 1989 and has continued up until today.

The paintings on the wall revolve around the theme of international freedom, rather than focusing on the Berlin Wall itself.

Unfortunately, many of the paintings on the wall have been damaged by graffiti and vandalism caused mainly by tourists chipping part of the wall away to take as a souvenir.

Part of the wall near Ostbahnhof (East train station) has been restored with the help of a nonprofit organization. As such, this is the best train station to use when visiting the East Side Gallery.
