"Keine Mauern mehr" (English translation: "No Walls Anymore") was the Austrian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1990, performed in German by Simone.

The song was performed twentieth on the night, following Italy's Toto Cutugno with "Insieme: 1992" and preceding Cyprus' Haris Anastasiou with "Milas Poli". At the close of voting, it had received 58 points, placing 10th in a field of 22.

The song is a dramatic ballad, in which Simone sings about the freedom brought about through the fall of the Berlin Wall. In keeping with the multi-national theme, the song contains some lyrics in English, French and Serbo-Croatian.

It was succeeded as Austrian representative at the 1991 Contest by Thomas Forstner singing "Venedig im Regen".
