The gravestone like monuments are a sobering introduction to the presence of something very, very awful to come. Go down the steps to the display rooms and be prepared to be appalled. Millions of Polish Jews killed. A hundred or so so Danish Jews killed. Why? Why the difference? Why? Enter a room where the floor displays copies of letters... More

As soon as I entered the maze of stone pillars I felt emotional. The whole place was eerily quiet despite the large number of tourists there. The place let itself to quiet reflection. The information centre based underground was also an emotional experience. due to most visitors using the headsets it too was very quiet and cold. It was a... More

The external concrete columns have created the atmosphere of mourning. Its internal exhibition only focuses on the individual stories of Jewish victims, and makes me feel that they are just my neighbors or friends - "how can they be like this?!" So I do appreciate its way of communicating with visitors - by telling the individual stories. By the way,... More

Oh my...could not believe this place of sadness and remembrance. Such a quiet, solemn place to visit and pay tribute to all of the murdered Jews of Europe.

A memorial to the Holocaust victims. Simple and moving. Man's inhumanity to man - how could this ever have happened?

Go to remember or simply to drink in the atmosphere. Go to concentrate on yourself or to forget yourself, to feel wide and expanding or small and insignificant. Whatever the reason may be - it will be a good one. Plan to stay longer than you think you should, because you may get a little lost in thought or... literally,... More

Personally, I don't think any art piece, as large as it may, can truly convey the horror of the Nazi regime against the Jewish people of Europe. Nevertheless, this memorial went right through my heart. As a grandson of 4 holocaust survivors from Poland and Romania, I was touched.

This is not a regular monument. When you go through it, you have a feeling lof being in a movie. You see for a sec someone run or goe across, and then dont see them.You hear people, but you see them only for the split of a second when they cross your way. In connection to the theme and millions... More

I was there three or four times during my stay somehow kept getting drawn back to it. It is excellent my experience of it will never be the same as someone else and that's probably the point. We walked past it first and it didn't look like much but once you get to walk through it it's something completely different.

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.
