Most of it has since then been torn down, but fragments do remain a feature of the city. The Berlin Wall Trail, a route for walkers and cyclists splits into 14 sections, follows the path of the former wall with information panels telling the story of the Berlin Wall. The colourful and recently restored East Side Gallery in Friedrichshain is a piece of the hinterland Wall that in 1990 was painted by artists from 21 countries.
