I suppose that it's impossible to adequately represent the suffering that millions of Jews endured during the Nazi era. But this memorial is imposing and stark, cannot be ignored and certainly reminds us that many lives were lost and that many more were, and still are, being affected as a consequence of Nazi genocide. Conveniently located between Branderbuger Tor and... More

The memorial and museum which is beneath it are both very worthwhile to visit during time in Berlin. The musuem is incredibly moving and contains many personal accounts of peoples experiences of the persecution of Jews during WW2. The memorial is also very good however the atmosphere in it can be ruined by children screaming, shouting and running around and... More

if you're going by any sort of tour at all, Bus, Walking, Segway, you're bound to come here anyway, but if not make the effort - its real close to the Brandendurg Gate in any case, you've no excuse. Walk out in to the middle and feel how dis-orientating it can be - that's the whole point, and also know... More

I've visited several holocaust memorial but the Berlin's one is for sure the more moving and the information center (free entrance!) is full of accurate and interesting facts. It's very simple but the purpose is there! The room names is very moving with the lecture of the names of all victims which takes more than 6 years to be finished...... More

A large outdoor monument with great simplicity and architecture to resemble a sad fact, there is a museum in the basement but requires a ticket.

The memorial is huge and interactive. I was talking about the one above. Tourists are able to interact with it, it gives you a feeling of being trapped by the huge large blocks as you walk in, at the same time you are able to see the exit point parallely. Its not scarry neither is it fun, but it gives... More

I viewed it at night, in near silence, almost completely alone. I wouldn't recommend it any other way - despite the museum being closed.

My only concern is - it's hard not to make it fun, especially with kids. Appropriate behavior is important to honor the purpose and message, however, it's hard not to play hide and seek. It's very moving and beautiful, however.

There are 2 parts to this memorial. The one on top , street level is one to walk through to appreciated all the graves of Jews killed during the Holocaust. But then go down below and after a brief security screening, the museum is free. 4 euro audioguide, 2 euro for students. We used the audioguide and found it to... More

Moved to tears... Don't miss the museum below the monument!!! An absolute must see! We were very, very impressed with the monument itself, but we were absolutely overwhelmed by the museum. The way the two connect is beautiful and amazing. The museum creates silence, astonishment, disgust, respect, sadness, shock... Everyone should see this, to realize (as much as possible) over...
