  East Side Gallery

More than 1 kilometre of remains of the wall painted by international artists on the East Side. Half of it (the end near Ostbahnhof) has been restored recently and it is as bright and colourful as it was meant to be, the other half is still falling apart unfortunately.

The East Side of the wall was never sprayed when the wall was still there until 1989. The western side looked really colourful and interesting with all the politic statements and colourful graffitis. As the people of the East couldn't get to the wall without being shot the Eastern side was grey concrete and fences which made it an even more depressing sight I can imagine.

Address: Mühlenstrasse (at the River Spree)
Directions: Walk down "Straße der Pariser Kommune" from Ostbahnhof and you are there.
