All reviews berlin wall long stretch great art street art both sides nice walk original wall piece of history worth a visit sunny day s bahn visiting berlin cold war artwork graffiti artists ostbahnhof
You can see some nice pieces of art on the wall. Reminds me the quote "if it's not in the museum doesn't mean it's not art". I would suggest going there by night as it's more peaceful with less tourists trying to have selfies.
Make sure you take time to visit the East Side Gallery. It is well worth the time spent. It is a great reminder of how we treated people in a different time. The drawings and paintings were breathtaking. Easy to get to on the Berlin...More
I only rate the East Side Gallery 3 because I think most people come here expecting to be blown away. If you want to get an idea of the scale and construction of the Berlin Wall, this is one place to do it, but I...More
A part of the wall still stand and they let the artists paint it as they saw fit. You have a potpourri of images that are striking, gunny, historical, unique, amazing! Take time to watch them, it is worth it!
Certain parts of the wall-gallery can become super crowdy during the day eg the Brezhnev Honecker kiss. Its a 1.5km part of the wall with some great art on it. Try to be there early in the morning or even late at night, it's free...More
Although this wall represents division and war, I thoroughly enjoyed what the wall now represents, art and freedom. There are many photo ops, restaurants along the water and souvenir stands to enjoy. I look forward to returning one day.
When you arrive at Warschauer Strasse in the heart of the district, you have found one of Berlin’s party hotspots. At night in Friedrichshain, the energy is palpable and the streets of this old worker's quarter are full of street musicians. On one hand, you may find a bar with international crowds, electronic music, long lines and panoramic views - on the other, an outside venue by old train yards featuring decrepit
buildings and live alternative music. No matter your taste, the best way to end a night out in Friedrichshain is sitting by the Spree River at the East side gallery, the longest and best preserved piece of the Berlin Wall, watching the sun rise over the beautiful Oberbaum Bridge.

It's not greatly lit, but you can still see it quite clearly during the night (if you have decent sight). If you want to check out the full details and/or don't have the best pair of eyes, better to go during the day ;-)
