|About these ratings|
The East Side Gallery refers to the longest intact section of the Berlin Wall, located off the Warschauer Strasse S-bahn or U-bahn stations. After the Berlin Wall's fall (say that 10 times fast), artists from all over congregated here and painted the murals that adorn the wall today. If you want to experience the Wall for the first time, this is the place to do it. Some say the surrounding area is pretty grim, but Yahoo! Travel says "The barren wasteland which surrounds the Wall is oddly fitting and gives you a good idea of how the Wall, surrounded by a 10 metre-wide, heavily mined death strip, would have appeared several decades ago."
