The 1.3km long East Side Gallery used to be a part of the Berlin Wall. Today, it features some of the most stunning street art in the world, created by 118 artists from 21 countries. Iconic works include Dmitri Vrubel's Fraternal Kiss and Birgit Kinders's Trabant breaking through the wall.
There are many other holocaust memorials in Berlin that are free to visit, such as the Topography of Terror, situated at the former Gestapo headquarters, and Bebelplatz, a public square that pays tribute to the Nazi book burning. Every time you visit the dazzling German capital, you're bound to visit something new. But if you liked our Berlin travel guide, don't forget to subscribe for more travel guides (they're all free!)
Getting Around In Berlin
Stay near Berlin hauptbahnhof (the central station) or Berlin Mitte (the city centre) for easy access to all the major attractions. Depending on where you're put up, you'll be able to walk to some of the places of interest. For others, you'll have to take a bus, tram, or train, and you'll never be too far from one of those. You could also buy the Berlin WelcomeCard, which lets you use all public transport for free, apart from giving you discounted entry to paid attractions. It's available for 48 hours or more (up to six days).
