The Memorial is a large space with these cements blocks of different sizes which have been left unmarked to signify the numbers of Jews that were eradicated during the Holocaust. We went there as part of a free tour and learnt a number of interesting facts about the Memorial and walking through the Memorial itself is an eerie, lonely and... More

The place is a ten minutes’ walk form Brandenburger Tor and next to the site where Hitler’s bunker used to be. If it is too busy to get into the museum itself, just talk a walk among the stones from one side to another to feel what despair and loneliness of the victims must have been like. The idea to...

Of all the museums in this city full of them, this was the best one I went to. They really did an amazing job. I would strongly recommend this to absolutely anyone.

I travelled to Berlin with a school group. We arrived around half an hour late and they refused to let us in with out group ticket that had been paid for. Instead they told us to queue for 40 mins or there's no other way we're getting in.

I've been here twice and the second time was just as chilling as the first. Appalling to see how the Jewish community were treated and the scale of the whole thing. Best of all, it's free in although there is a box for donations.

We visited this memorial as part of a walking tour. Once the thinking behind its design had been explained we were free to walk around it and it is a humbling experience. Being free to interpret its meaning and how it affects you is a stroke of genius. A must see.

The stark simplicity of the memorial makes you think long and hard. Things start so simply but one step too far and there seems to be no way back. Symbolic and thought provoking.

I agree with the people commenting on the lack of respect by some passers by. Still important to visit the underground exhibition.

This memorial has evoked so many different reactions and opinions so we had to check it out ourselves. It is a very short walk from the Brandenburg Gate so it really should be seen. You will see from the reviews on Trip Advisor that the reactions are very different. It is very difficult to have a memorial that pleases everyone... More
