East Side Gallery, Berlin

East Side Gallery, Berlin

1.3 kilometres of amazement: take a walk along with the East Side Gallery and rediscover art and the history of the Berlin Wall.

A Trabant cleverly painted to look like it’s breaking through the wall. Honecker and Brezhnev in a brotherly socialist kiss. A section of the Berlin Wall makes it the longest open-air gallery in the world:

The East Side Gallery: A whole 1.3 kilometres of history and art

At 1316 metres long, the open-air art gallery on the banks of the Spree in Friedrichshain is the longest continuous section of the Berlin Wall still in existence. Immediately after the wall came down, 118 artists from 21 countries began painting the East Side Gallery, and it officially opened as an open-air gallery on 28 September 1990. Just over a year later, it was given protected memorial status.
