All reviews humboldt university nazi book burning book burnings glass plate heinrich heine opera house unter den linden public square underground room open square nice square small opening brass plaque simple monument buildings surrounding historic location mitte district
This is such a moving experience, it’s an underground room with empty bookcases. There is a plaque which roughly translates to “where they burn books,
they will ultimately burn people as well”. These were words written by Heinrich Heine in 1820.
If you are walking down the Unter den Linden then do step into the square, given the historic significance of the book burning. The memorial itself was a window set in the floor at the centre of the square but the window was steamed up...More
Bebelplatz is a square in Mitte. It is mostly known as the location of the Book Burning Memorial, commemorating the Nazi book burning ceremonies of 1933 in many German cities. Around 20,000 books were burned. The memorial was designed by Micha Ullman. It is a...More
Here during WWII the Nazi's burnt about 25,000 books thought to be dangerous for the Third Reich. In fact there is a glass square you can look down into and see empty bookcases to remember the event. There is a also a plaque with the...More
If you’re not a History lover, however have watched Indiana Jones or any documentaries that show the Nazi Party adepts burning around twenty thousands books, that’s the famous square. Today’s beauty surpasses the dark days a million! Emotional monument underneath and significant quotes at the...More
Bebelplatz is located along Unter den Linden opposite the Humboldt University. It is known as the location of the book burning by the Nazis in the 1930s. The square itself is nice enough but isn't remarkable of itself.
The peer houses the library at one end, the university at another and a museum on another. Quite a big peer which makes for stunning shots. Can be quite overwhelming. Good for a short 10-15 minute stop
I passed through Bebelplatz after visiting Gendarmenmarkt during my visit to Berlin in August 2018 and early September 2018. Bebelplatz is surrounded by many beautiful buildings and leads out to Unter den Linden. Bebelplatz is known in history as the site of the Nazi book...More

I'd suggest the Berlin Wall Memorial at Bernauer Strasse rather than the East Side Gallery

Why the "free" tours rather than one of the higher quality walking tours available? You are expected to tip the guide who may simply be working from a prepared script, rather than any personal knowledge of the places you stop. The guides also have to pay the company a fee for every single person that starts their tour, so, the pressure is put on you to tip and tip well. Try Insider Tours or Original Berlin Walks instead. Their guides are professionals and your tour will reflect this....More

I think you would be far better taking a Walking Tour on your first morning (several are recommended in the Thngs to Do link in the green bar at the top - from this link go to 'activities' for choices) You will see many of these places on a tour and you can then go back (with some idea of where they are in relation to each other / how to get there) if you wish to spend more time there. If you wish to go inside the Resichstag you need to book a tour in advance (highly recommended) thought you...More
