As we all know, the Berlin Wall is a world famous monument for freedom. It is the wall that not only separates Germany into East and West, but also the world. On our trip to Berlin in May 2013, we visited the Wall.
The Berlin Wall is a really tall wall (about 3m in height?), and this is the exact wall that people are trying to climb over to sneak out of East/West Germany.
Of course, we are not here to climb the wall. But we are at the East Side Gallery to observe the 105 painting done by artists during the cold war era on the East side of the wall. It is a long stretch of 1.3km and continuous paintings (and nothing else).
But these paintings are not just your usual art work. If you look closely and study the intention behind every painting, you can clearly see the message the artist want to bring across to the world.
We’ve tried to snap a shot of each painting we saw there.
Tell us what you see in each painting!
Amazing paintings yea?
If you want to visit the Berlin East Side Gallery yourself, you can reach there by the metro, and stop at Ostbahnhof station. Once there, you can begin your 1.3km walk to discover the agony of the Germans during the cold war.
The Berlin East Side Gallery is just one of the historical sites we’ve been to during our trip in Berlin. Click here to check out what else we did in Berlin too!
