I am so happy I visited this memorial. I was taken back by emotion and was very impressed with the self guided tour (in English). This visit reminded me of the power of historical knowledge. Highly recommended spot to visit in Berlin.

This memorial is immense. Many concrete blocks at varying heights gives the observer a sense of them closing in on you. Very dark feeling. Definitely makes one think.

A truly poignant memorial. I think the sarcophagi are particularly symbolic of the suffering encountered. I couldn't think of a more fitting memorial. A must see in Berlin.

Honestly, this was something I visited initially because I felt as though I couldn't be in Berlin and not see it. I was so pleasantly surprised. Even though it is a fairly simple installment, it feels interactive in a surprising way. I think it's definitely worth the visit!

Imagine this scenario: walking down the road with your friend, it is night, it is oh so very cold, there is bits of snow everywhere and suddenly you find this place. It was magical, all the memorial stones had snow above them giving them an almost abandoned look, walking in the middle of them gives you a kind of adventurous... More

This is a unique memorial and one that will make you stop and think about its purpose. It is next door to the US Embassy and about a block or so away from the Brandenburg Gate, so it is easy to find. It is a large area outdoors with hundreds of stone squares and rectangles rising to different heights and... More

Walked here in the ice and snow. Just walking through the black slabs felt alienating and terrible (not in the sense of bad, more awe inspiring). I have met holocaust survivors and refugees from Nazi Germany and the huge expanse of the blocks brought home the senselessness of it all, better than any words could express.

Walked past here and spent some time looking over it. To appreciate I suppose you really need to think about the history behind it. As it is basic in design, but it is what it represents that matters.

I went by this memorial monument several times a day during my business trip and every time I was taken by its power. It makes one stop and think.

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.
