10 East Side Gallery, Berlin

The real Berlin Wall does not exist anymore because Germany is not a divided country anymore. But you can get a gist of the Wall when you visit the East Side Gallery. It is a permanent open-air street art gallery on the longest still intact section of the former Berlin Wall.

In spring 1990, after the Wall came down, this section was painted by 118 artists from 21 countries. The artists commented on the political changes of 1989 and 1990 in huge murals. Unfortunately, many of the original paintings got destroyed through erosion, vandalism and urban development - but at least you can see some replicas today. I have been to Berlin twice, in 2012 and 2016, and visited the East Side Gallery both times because it is a historic place with lots to look at and think about - and overall it gives you strong Berlin Art Vibes.
