I think this is another must see in Berlin b/c its a different experience for everyone. The artist never explained what its supposed to be, so its an interpretation of what you think it represents. Much larger than I expected. Walking through it made me feel sad of course and gave you the sense of mourning that it should. Its... More

Such a beautiful tribute to a horrific point in time. It's a different experience from day to night. I suggest visiting it both.

I'm not Jewish, but this memorial is haunting and makes you stop and think. And maybe that was the artist's intent. It's quite simple in its design, primarily a series of nondescript tomb-like structures. There's no information, nothing to read. But again, I don't think the point here is to provide an education on the Holocaust. I think the point... More

Very thought provoking and atmospheric. Very beautiful memorial. Went into the museum there too, it had a queue but only about half an hour well worth waiting. It was here that there were lots of personal stories, sad final letters from those who knew they were going to die to their loved ones. Very sad but very important.

But they did. I was lucky to go there first with our bike tour and our guide was very informative and talked about not climbing on them etc and in fact would ask others incl children to get off them, I thought this was correct but I would not have known not to climb on them maybe if I had... More

I didn't think this memorial represented anything significant or important about the history of the holocaust. The base idea was on track but I thought it would have been much better if the tombs had names or information about the Jews who died in the holocaust. I didn't really think it was worth seeing, it didn't evoke any emotion for... More

Unbelievably close to both the remains of the bunker and chancellery, the Holocaust Memorial is beautiful and thought provoking. There was a line to enter the below-ground museum, so we just walked the outside columns that wonderfully disorient you walk through them. Well worth seeing.

Beautiful place to respect and honor all those who lost their lives during WWII - but also a place to reflect on issues of today.......

Our visit to the Holocaust Memorial was a very emotional experience. Seeing the Steles was confronting and seeing people frolicking on top of them was ghastly. However be it as it may, the underground Museum is incredibly moving and a Must See. Moving diaries which bring one to tears and a reminder that this must not happen ever again to... More
