Visiting this place is actually a good way to enjoy Berlin and learn a bit about its history. But it might be really crowded as it’s very touristic. The art works here are very interesting and enlightening also the area is quite good place to just strolling around.
Even cooler than the pics look! It’s really amazing how much history this city holds and this wall is a representation of just one segment. When you leave the Ostbahnhof, the wall is pretty much right outside the station. The well-known kiss painting is located pretty close to where this pin is located, so it’s just a few minutes walk from the station.
