East Side Gallery, Berlin

I promise this will be my last post on the Berlin trip! I took so many photos of the East Side Gallery that I wanted to give it a post of its own, rather than just including it in the main Berlin post.

The East Side Gallery is a 1.3 km section of the Berlin Wall located near the centre of Berlin. It consists of various paintings by artists from around the world, painted in 1990 and is an international monument to freedom. Unfortunately, a lot of the paintings have been ruined by graffiti – I really do not care if “Becky woz ere” in 2010! Go away and stop damaging symbols of peace!

Anyway, here are some of the photos I took of the East Side Gallery.

Some of the artwork had deeper messages:

"There are many walls to tear down"
“There are many walls to tear down”

Viele kleine Leute

Have you ever visited the East Side Gallery? Which painting did you like best?
