BERLIN, GERMANY - FEBRUARY 28: Passers-by peek into the construction site next to the East Side Gallery, which is the longest still-standing portion of the former Berlin Wall, where a new hotel is scheduled to be built on February 28, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. According to media reports the developer in charge of the project plans to remove an approximately 25-meter long piece of the Wall and transfer it elsewhere in order to allow access to the construction site. Critics, including East Side Gallery mural artists and Spree River embankment development opponents, decry the move, citing the East Side Gallery's status as a protected landmark and a major tourist attraction.
