Memorial and museum

Memorial in busy area but very quiet when walking through it. Museum very informative but emotional even for those who know quite a lot about the holocaust

This is a must. Wonder what you will make of it. You will make your mind up what you think the designer meant it to be. I immediately thought of a cemetery! Go downstairs to look at more history of the holocaust. Near the Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag Building. On a street full of cafe's where you can get nice... More

Its an unusual design for a Memorial. We wanted to pay our respects. The actual area covers quite a lot of ground and there were plenty of people visiting.

Post visiting this place i was left speechless and i took a deep dig into the history and now can feel the pain and times that would have existed then. Its a memorial with grey blocks reminding you the lives of jews murdered... More

On your approach to the memorial it appears a solid structure but as you get closer you then realise it is separate blocks all of different sizes with a narrow walk way in between. When you navigate through the blocks you have the strangest feeling of weight and desperation. On the day we visited it was a glorious sunny day... More

Although a sad and somber visit the architecture is a beautiful tribute to the tragedy. A calm quiet area despite being so close to the hustle and bustle of the city, well maintained and the museum below is harrowing but deeply fascinating and a wonderful preservative of why this must never happen again.

This is an area with lots of memorials in regards to the holocaust. It contains a vast amount of stones all laid in rows in car sizes. There is a museum also at this but unfortunately on the day we visited it doesn't open (Mondays) however make from April onwards it may do, it is definitely worth a visit

Despite being surrounded by a busy city once emerged in the memorial the mid wanders and you can't help but look in awe at the structure and what a suiting memorial it is to those who sadly passed because of the holocaust

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.
