Owner description: This mile-long stretch of the Berlin Wall is one of the largest remaining portions of the former divide between East and West Germany.

Plenty of sections of the original wall to photograph sandwiched between loads of other photo hungry selfie addicts. Worth a short 15 minute visit.

Took the train out to this side of Berlin, which is very easy once you understand how it all works. Once we arrived, it was nice to wander along the East side of the wall to admire the pictures.
Lots of people, it not enough to spoil the time spent here. Well worth the trip out to see.

I went there because it is a famous place in Berlin.it was ok. There are several walls painted beside each other. I am not a big fan of paintings. You can take some nice photos there.

The Berlin wall is history, but this part of it is very much alive. While getting impressed by the creativity, political twist and skillfulness of the street artists, it is easy to forget how terrifying and evil the wall and «security» system was.
For all who are intetested in our close history, snd for all who love street art - this is a must. Top score!

Start at one end (such as the east end by the Warschauer Strasse U-Bahn station) and go all the way to the west end (by the Ostbahnhof station). Some people stop once they get to the Brezhnev kissing mural, but there is impactful art along the entire wall.

You don't really need a tour guide, and you don't need to pay anything to see this.
