Seen in Berlin: Part II

Here are some shots from the East Side Gallery between Warschauer Strasse U-Bahn (Subway) Station and Ostbanhoff S-Bahn Station. This is the longest stretch of remaining Berlin Wall, (known in Germany as the Berliner Mauer,) stretching 1.3 kilometers long, that remains intact. It has been used to paint murals as a tribute to the freedoms that were lost during the DDR (GDR) regime over East Germany, and to make political and motivational statements.

  1. When I was there we took so many pictures by the wall, particularly of that multicolored part by that gate. I don’t think I actually got to see the kiss in person though!
