BERLIN – a Guide to the Wild Wild East

A complete guide to Berlin ‘s Wild East – namely the part of Germany’s capital that used to be behind the proverbial Iron Curtain, obviously.

Mural at the East Side Gallery in Berlin 's Wild East.
At the East Side Gallery, on this picture by street artist and wall painter Birgit Kinder you can also see a Trabant – aka Trabi. It was one of two types of cars that were manufactured in the former GDR and everyone in the west made fun of, obviously. The Trabi is crashing through a wall – guess which one that is. Also, its license plate reads Nov 9, 89 – the date the gates to the west were open and the wall – and finally the GDR – came down.
