Germany: Berlin Wall
I travelled to Berlin and some other countries in Europe with my friends during the Easter break this year.On our first day in Berlin, we went straight to the Berlin wall. The Berlin wall, once used to restrict people's freedom was transformed into colourful painted artworks now to represent liberation and freedom restored. The area of Berlin wall is vast and we chose the best part which is known as the East Side Gallery in the Friedrichshain area. To get to the East Side Gallery, we took the S-Bahn and got off at Ostbahnhof and walked towards the direction of U-/ S-Bahn of Warschauer Strasse. You could get off at either stop and walked in either direction. The Gallery was actually quite a distance away from the S-Bahn although in the map it looked quite close to each other so be prepared to walk a bit. I think it took us around twenty to twenty five minutes walk from the station (perhaps it is because we took our time taking photos of everything). The East Side Gallery is the world's largest open-air mural collection that is 1.3 km long so do be prepared to spend at least an hour or two to walk through the whole wall and take photographs along the way. There aren't many shops around the wall either so it's best to have a drink and snack with you while you admire the artworks. I would recommend if in summer to go there during mid-afternoon around 3-4 pm so you can get just enough daylight to take nice photos but not too much that you would be hot and sweaty.
