This is an experiential memorial that engulfs the visitor in a labyrinth of simple standing stones of varying heights set on an undulating floor that can take you off your guard. The artist intentionally left everything vague. No names, dates or places. Germany has acknowledged the horrors they inflicted on countless millions and reserving such a large space so close...

On a 2nd visit we appreciated the layout and concept of the memorial. The first one was just after it was build. Even since it was a hot summer day and we were there a the heat of the day you enter into a reflective mood when you walk among the pillars

I found this unusual memorial very impressive, yet not haunting or sad - as the history actually is. I had actually expected more text, photos etc. at a memorial - but found this very different and interesting. It makes you think about what happened and feel kind of lost when you walk around inside. I really recommend walking in between... More

Just walk through it and be prepared for a million emotions and reactions. It is highly controversial but my group of friends, four of us, pronounced it brilliant. It needs no words. It means many things to different people. It is a true memorial but the description is all in each individual's head.

A visit to this area was quiet despite the many people in the area. The sober fact of the 2,711 slabs to acknowledge the Jewish Holocaust victims being a powerful image and view for those visiting. The fact that it only a small representative of the many hundreds of thousands who lost their lives during these sad times is incredible... More

My wife and I visited the top section which was an architectural marvel before lining up to go down to the museum. I wandered through, but after reading some of the very sad, sad letters from the prisoners I went and waited for my wife outside. I was very moved and shocked that a people could do that to another... More

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

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.
