At first glance this memorial is cubist, plain, unprepocessing. When you begin to walk among the stones, they become greater than you, taller, imposing. As you go further it becomes quieter and you feel more solitude. It's an exceptional experience, and good opportunity to reflect...More

Providing a fitting memorial to the horrors must have been the hardest commission to accept. The results are wonderful. I assume that you know the facts. This shows the story effectively. Incredibly moving, but avoiding sentimentality.

This has to be seen. Somehow it takes one's breath away. As you wander between the stones you get a real feel for the horror of the thing, and as you realise how the ground is also part of the exhibit it brings it home...More

Ignoring all the people taking pictures - its an intense symbol for all the people lost in the holocaust.

I didn't understand the point of the monument when I got there until the guide explained that was on purpose. The artist left out anything specific so that the seer could form thier own opinion of what it all might mean.

A short walk from Berlin Hauptbanhof station to the Reichstag, then the Brandenburg Gate, then 5 mins on to this memorial. An excellent commemoration of the holocaust although people jumping and walking on the blocks could ruin the mood if the guards weren't present to...More

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

Nobody is buried there, they are a visual representation of the varying people who were killed. It also is deceiving in size, as it is much larger when you explore it.
