  East Side Gallery

The East Side Gallery lies to the north of Oberbaumbrücke. It consists of a 1.3 kilometre long section of the Berlin Wall along Mühlenstraße, on which artists from all over the world painted 106 murals in 1990. Amongst the best-known is Honecker and Brezhnev's Fraternal Kiss. This was painted by the Russian artist, Dmitri Vrubel, who gave it the title "O God, help me survive this deadly love".
But you'll also find a lot of very interessting pictures from unknown artists.
Take a walk at the east side gallery on a sunny day and feel the history of that wall . . .
