East Side Gallery

   This is a mile long stretch of the Berlin Wall. It is the longest portion of the wall still standing, and covered with artwork. There are many emotional and political statements on the wall which will evoke powerful feelings in the beholder. Colourful and vibrant, it contrasts sharply with the stark grey of the surrounding cityscape.

A guided tour is not necessary, though you must make sure not to miss any of the delightful grounds and the splendid sites if you choose to venture alone.
