The East Side Gallery is the longest preserved segment of the Berlin Wall. The border situation here had special features that made it unusual even in the GDR. After the Wall fell, however, the former border elements here became famous worldwide: 118 artists from 21 countries painted the east side of the Berlin Wall, making it the largest open-air gallery in the world. This tour is about the artistic appropriation of the former barrier, the joy over the fall of the Wall and the history of the GDR border regime.
