This should be on everyone's to do list for Berlin. Out of the way but easy to get there with the S bahn towards Potsdam. Once you get off at Gruenwald you'll think the prison who told you to go there made a mistake with...More

This place was a little difficult to find. The navigation in our car got us in the area but couldn't pinpoint the location. Luckily we still stumbled upon it. To see the numbers that were sent each day on the trains was quite overwhelming and...More

A very moving place, in remembrance of all the people deport by the Nazis to various camps during WWII, it was easy to find with a bit of research but it looks part of an operational train station.

A simple and yet important memorial site directly related to the holocaust. It would be best to either have a guide explain this site or read about the significance of it in advance. Duration of the visit can be a few minutes.

A simple journey out of Berlin on the S Bahn on the S7 will get you here, its not a long trip and is well worth it. The way each panel is revealed and then you start seeing the numbers of panels and human beings...More
