I hold my hands up at the fact that just over a week ago my knowledge of historical Berlin was pretty poor!!
Yes I knew about Hitler (although not the story)
And yes I had an inkling about the wall - I will now never forget the date 1989 (for those of you who don't know - the year it came down)
I cant say history has ever been one of my fave subjects, however whilst in Berlin we found the perfect combination to keep me interested - Art on the Wall!!!!!
East side gallery is a 1.3km stretch of the original Berlin Wall, sitting alongside the river Spree it has been transformed into an outdoor art gallery. The paintings covering this iconic landscape portray a time of change and express great hopes for a better, more free future for all people of the world.
