Murals uncovered. One of the most interesting art you can find in Berlin

Tourists heading to Berlin for a culture fix this spring will not have to pay an entrance fee to a gallery to view the German capital’s best-kept art secret.

So, it’s time to go to Berlin to see the best murals uncovered already visible.
