Over 1300 meters long, this is the longest still-standing section of the Berlin Wall - one of the most prominent symbols of the division of Europe by the Iron Curtain after the Second World War. A must see for history buffs as well as for lovers of art, today, it serves not only as a reminder of Europe's recent history but also as a popular art gallery.
With over 100 open-air paintings, the East Side Gallery is said to commemorate the gaining of freedom and the hope for better future. One of the most prominent paintings to be seen here is surely the kissing scene of Brezhnev and Honecker.
If interested, you can take a guided tour of the East Side Gallery and learn more about its history, restoration, and artists who took part in this unique art project. These tours have to be booked in advance.
