Spanning just over 1.3 kilometres, Berlin’s East Side Gallery is an international memorial for freedom; the longest-lasting, and largest open-air gallery in the world. It is also the longest remaining stretch of the Berlin Wall. A must-see for all who harbor an interest in history and the arts, the gallery consists of over 105 regularly-changing paintings from international artists; documenting the hopes for a better future. Located on the edge of two of the city’s most happening neighborhoods — Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg — as well as the Spree, and its reggae ‘beach’ bars, the East Side Gallery is an ideal starting point for any cultural misadventure in the world’s most creative city.
A starting point for the city’s inimitable culture, there are few places left that can connect you so firmly with Berlin’s storied past.
