Berlin East Side Gallery

Berlin East Side Gallery


1.3 kilometres of history and art on the longest remaining section of the Berlin Wall

The opening and fall of the Berlin Wall, which divided East and West Berlin over a length of 43 kilometres, began on 9 November 1989. An outstanding event in recent world history took its course. In spring 1990, a 1.3-kilometre section of the Wall was painted metres by 118 artists from 21 countries. The East Side Gallery memorial was created as a permanent open-air gallery. The artists applied their views of the years of change 1989/90 in sketches to the concrete wall in about 100 paintings. The works have since had to be restored several times due to the effects of the weather.
