Blick auf die East Side Gallery
guided tour

Highlight tour: Who does the city belong to? (in German)

22 October 2022 11:00–12:00

The East Side Gallery as a monument was listed as early as 1991 to preserve the painted remains of the Berlin Wall. At the same time, initial plans were developed for the urban development of the area around the gallery. The urban development plans and the monument protection found a solution, the result of which we can see today: The East Side Gallery remained in its original location with planned gaps in between - including access roads to the new buildings in the former border strip. The tour traces the discussions about the preservation of the East Side Gallery and, with the "Wagenburg" and the graffiti sprayers, makes visible the stories of people who appropriated the derelict area in the 1990s and were displaced.
