With most citizens from many places around the world, Berlin is a melting pot of exotic cultures and living styles.
It isn’t easy to decide what to see in Berlin because there are so many things that you should check out. In this article, I focus on the fascinating perspective of this city – Berlin Street Art and Graffiti.
Thanks to its popularity, the Berlin Wall is one of the must-see attractions if you visit the capital of Germany.
It was built to divide Berlin from 1961 to 1989 into East Berlin and West Berlin.
When the Wall was taken down, many artists have used it as an art gallery for exhibition.
Walking along the Berlin Wall, you can see artists’ creativity and exceptional contribution. Here are some pictures of my discovery.
My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love
In Berlin, you surely cannot miss this iconic graffiti “My God, Help Me to Survive This Deadly Love” by Dmitri Vrubel. This artwork is also referred to as “Fraternal Kiss.” It is one of the most well-known murals in the Berlin Wall Gallery.
Where to find graffiti Fraternal Kiss in Berlin Wall?
You can find this mural around the middle of the East Side Gallery wall. After the restoration in 2009, the fence was put in front of the painting to protect it from destruction.
Berlin Street Art Tour
If you are interested in seeing more street art, I suggest participating in a free walking tour. I joined the walking tour of Alternative Berlin Tours and loved it.
There are new tours at 11 am, 1 pm, and 3 pm every day. In around 3 hours, the tour guide will show you around Berlin and let you discover many unique street arts.
During the tour, the guide will explain many things about the murals to get the necessary information.
My trip to Berlin could not have been fulfilled without this helpful tour since I could see Berlin in a “local eye.”
