The Berlin Wall is under threat!

Berlin Wall

Berlin’s most famous images, such as Brezhnev and Honecker’s kiss, are on part of the wall set to be demolished for luxury flats

“All the paintings have become a symbol of freedom in Berlin andEurope,” he said. “Unlike elsewhere in the city, where the majority of the wall has been removed, this is a unique opportunity to preserve a large section of what was once a death strip. If you remove the sections, you’re destroying the authenticity of this place.”

The district’s mayor, the Green MP Franz Schulz, confirmed that parts of the wall would have to be removed: “The investor has a legal right to demand this, so we’ll have to do it.”
