well worth a wander and some considerable reflection. Its power is in its simplicity. Spoilt a bit by its location to too many pretty crass eating and souvenir places - oh well, you can't have everything

Well worth making sure you fit this into your Berlin visit. Its a very sobering and atmospheric place, specially as you venture further into the labyrinth

We were very impressed with the architecture of this memorial and we felt connected to the people and the stories and were speechless all through our visit! A must to visit for all!

This is a stark but striking reminder of the horrors which befell those who suffered. The respectful silence which pervades the vast memorial site seem incongruous in such a busy and vibrant city. Unfortunately,the visitor centre was closed on a Monday,so we had to rely on the website and information leaflets for the history of the memorial. This is a... More

For Berlin to have such am Extensive memorial dedicated to the Holocaust in prime real estate is admirable. The kids (age 9) thought it was a playground. They ran around. We would need to take them when they are older for them to understand. We thought it was a very interactive experience.

Off course we visited the Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas during our weekend trip to Berlin. I myself strongly agree with 'Lets not forget' and 'This should not ever happen again', so I am in favor of any memorial to remember and honour all victims of the Holocaust. I did read about the unique design of the Memorial by... More

This is a must do part of a trip to Berlin. The museum was well thought out and gave a clear understanding of the history of the fate of Jews during this time period.

Unfortunately when I visited the Holocaust Memorial, my brother and I were a little short on time and didn't get the opportunity to visit the information centre located beneath the outdoor monuments. The momuments alone offered a lull from the hustle and bustle of central Berlin as you pressed towards the centre and gave time to reflect upon their nature.... More

This is very important monument of mankind indicating both cruelty, hope, understanding and forgiving. At the same time Holocaust Memorial is very Berlin like area close to both Brandenburger Tor, and luxury life of Postsdamer Platz. No need to say that go there! I have visited there several time during the last few years. It is still touching, and will... More
