Berlin really has a way of creating great symbolic memorials! This one is a really strong one, definitely worth going to if you're spending some time in Berlin. It is also very well located (just next to Tiergarten and the Reichstag). Walking through the big concrete blocks is very intense, and the effect created is incredible. Must go!

This is an incredible and harrowing testament to the brutality of the Nazi regime. The blocks are thought provoking, if occasionally marred by inappropriate behaviours - think kids frolicking in a maze like structure. It is a disorienting experience to wander between the blocks, which can quickly remove you from the city, make you uncertain of the ground as they... More

The outside installation of the blocks of stone, which is totally impressive and moving, is just the beginning. The underground displays are incredible. They present facts and the lives of a representative number of victims in a such a detailed, personal way, it is impossible not to shed tears. This is definitely a "must see" if you are in Berlin....

This is either 1. a reminder of an ugly event in history when society decided they didn’t like people of a certain faith, and so went to great lengths firstly to ostracise them, and then to wipe them out. I have already visited the Jewish museum and a couple of concentration camps and read many distressing stories of just some... More

A very innovative tribute the victims of the terrible holocaust that history can never forget or forgive. This Berlin memorial is a must visit for tourists to experience the sense of persecution felt by the victims.

The memorial and the center beneath it were one of the highlights of my trip to Berlin. The personal stories told here made this much more moving for me than a visit to Auschwitz did. Definitely worth the visit.

The memorial was absolutely gorgeous and really thought provoking. The line for the museum wasn't too bad either so that's definitely worth a look. I thought it was really impressive and so interesting. Just around the corner from the brandeburg gate.

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.
