A difficult task to create a memorial to such an horrific event in European history; everyone will have their own personal take on it. To me the endless grey, oppressive, stark blocks symbolise the enormity of the Holocaust. The free museum below the memorial documents the atrocities committed by the Third Reich and should be visited in conjunction with the... More

A very different memorial which causes one to think as you wonder around the blocks and become slightly disorientated. Spoilt some what by children and teenagers running around and shouting to each other. Could really do with some staff to try and control them. The museum was closed when we visited so unable to comment on that part of the... More

Compelling. Profound. DO NOT miss it. They won't let me review this without 100 characters, but this amazing memorial speaks for itself.

Take a short visit and stroll around the blocks. Think about what the blocks represent and what was done to man by man.

This memorial was not far from the Brandenburg Gate and took up a large area. It was a selection of square stones of varying sizes. There was a museum underneath which showed the horrors of what happened, I didn't go into this.

Worth seeing if in Berlin as it's in a prime position right near the Gate and on the way to Checkpoint Charlie.You could walk through it for an hour I suppose or merely look at it for a few minutes. Either way it's an effective memorial. The pale pillars make for a somber mood. We found it quite powerful

I was not impressed at all by this memorial. It did not honour what happened in the past and the most upsetting was that people were sitting on top of the blocks to have their lunch and colddrink!

His monument is amazing. It is completely disorienting and engrossing. I visited it with no prior knowledge and was completely moved in many ways. It can be considered a memorial to so many tragedies of human existence and its position in a central part of Berlin speaks volumes to me about the importance of reminding politicians and the military of...

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
