History and Art at the East Side Gallery
In spring 1990, more than 100 artists from 21 countries designed the world's longest open-air gallery on 1.3
kilometers of the former border wall. The art action transformed the former instrument of power into a symbol of
joy over the end of the GDR. In the overview tours you learn more about the history of Mühlenstrasse at the time
of division, the fall of the Wall and artistic appropriation. The overview tour "Art at the East Side Gallery"
tells the story of the historical location by means of selected works of art.
The guided tours take place in German, English, Spanish and French.
