East Side Gallery just before restoration- 2009

Not far from me is the East side gallery.

“The Berlin Wall East Side Gallery is a 1.3km-long section of the wall near the center of Berlin. Approximately 106 paintings by artists from all over the world cover this memorial for freedom and make it the largest open air gallery in the world.”
It is currently in very poor condition, the remaining of the wall itself is crumbling away too. There is interest in repairing the remainder of the wall and the artwork, more about that here.

    Great Lily! If you need any advice on anything, i’ll do my best to help, so don’t hesitate to ask. I doubt that you pass by my town, (Thionville is a small town in the east, next to Luxembourg.)Be sure to tell me if you make by any chance a halt in Luxembourg though? Keep me updated! Bonne journée
