Along the East Side Gallery you will find paintings by Thierry Noir, similar to those on the covers of 'The Fly' and 'Mysterious Ways'. In addition, parts of the 'Achtung Baby Video' were shot here.

Between the Oberbaumbrücke and the Ostbahnhof, along the former border strip, stretches this unique sequence of paintings. Following the fall of the wall in 1989, over a hundred artists from across the world came here and transformed this until then inaccessible part of the wall with their art.
Protests took place, which were also accompanied by David Hasselhoff, among others. A building plot behind the East Side Gallery needed access. Some segments of the wall were removed for a 6m wide access.
The paintings are redone regularly by the artists themselves.
