For more of a real life tour, take a walk along the Wall at the Eastside gallery by the Spree, dividing Freidrichshain-Kreuzberg districts. Grafﬁti has been removed from the northern side of the Wall, because in most of them were not that artistic anyway and did not have any meaning the Eastside gallery is dedicated to art and preserves the paintings made on the eastern side of the Wall. Although attempting to preserve the spirit of the time, an argument started if it just simply should be painted again by real artists.
