We came as a family of 4 including 2 teenagers. It makes a difference coming here with a good guide, a Berliner, Dennis from The Original Berlin walk tours. Before making our way into this memorial, he paused to ask us what we hope to see in these stones & to carry that thought with us when we emerge from... More

Do not just view this from the road. Walk into it. It is quite moving and well down. Definitely do not just look at this from the outside.

Very easy to get to. Surprisingly the stones were a lot larger once you walk into the center of the memorial although the entire memorial was quite easy and the shops around it make it kind of hard to get a decent photo without looking cheesy.

A wonderful and moving tribute to the innocent lives lost, and very thought provoking as to how a society can get to such barbarism.

The tombs were a very well thought out memorial. You don't realize from the outside but the ground goes deeper towards the centre. As you walk inwards you kind of feel like you're getting taken over by them as it gets darker. The underground memorial was good as well.

A very unique way to remember such a significant event. A must look. Easy to do when in the area. Be respectful and abide by the rules.

2nd visit. A grey maze. Quiet, eerie, thought reflecting. A fitting tribute to the victims of the holocaust.

We visited this museum in August. It has an amazing amount of historing displays. Plenty of information. It was very thought provoking for us. The staff were very helpful as I had a bad leg. We could use the lift and got priority entrance. Very little waiting in lines. People were silent through most of the displays as a sign... More

I understand the holocaust, memorials etc, But this was disappointing, ugly and I would have preferred a green park

The Holocaust Memorial is not my favorite in Berlin. I prefer going to the consentration camps instead. It's only labyrint and I don't really understand it at all.
