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.

Worth a visit but not in the nicest part of Berlin. Amazing artwork on the wall, much longer than I had imagined it to be and quite busy with tourists.

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!

Seeing the remaining Berlin Wall was amazing but seeing all the wonderful art on the wall is fantastic! Go walk on both sides and see the older “art”.

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

Hi. Go to the Warschauer Station. Come out, turn left & walk down the hill for about 5 minutes. At the road junction at the bottom you will see the start of the gallery across the road on the right.

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 ;-)
