It was 30 years ago since the fall of the Berlin Wall on Saturday the 9th November. The news coverage reminded me that during a visit to Berlin we had gone to visit the remaining bits of the Berlin Wall. The Wall which for many years was a symbol of division has now become the world’s largest open-air gallery, featuring 105 murals by artists from across the globe. So here are a few images from my visit to see the iconic structure and the art murals that still adorn it

The Wall art murals were mainly painted in the 1990, although a number of them have been repainted as a result of either the work being damaged by vandalism or deterioration due to weather.

‘The Kiss’ painted by Dmitri Vrubel depicts the famous embrace between the then Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev and East German President Erich Honecker Fuij: X-T2 Lens: Touit 2.8/12

‘The Kiss’ is such a mural and was repainted in March 2009.

At this section of the wall, you can step into what would have been known as no mans land between two sections of the wall. The River Spree flows behind the left hand section showed here. Then the major wall with the murals is at the right hand side of the image.

So here are a few of my favourite Wall art panels:

I have featured just a few of the 150 plus iconic murals that can be viewed at the open air gallery. I would certainly recommend anyone visiting the city to take your camera and capture your own images of what is left of the Berlin Wall, and its art work.
