It really puts into perspective just how shocking the holocaust was, obviously there isnt the same number of stone blocks to the amount of life's lost, but it is chilling to see, I recommend those who visit Berlin to go see the memorial, it really is incredible to see.

We didn't know what to expect but this place is so interesting! They run free guided tours at specific times, we went at 3pm and the queue wasn't that long! Great if it's not the best weather as well as they have an information centre downstairs so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to look around!

This memorial is a set of concrete blocks from afar, but in walking between them and to the deepest parts, one can feel the tension of the feeling of being followed or watched upon. Not knowing what is going to be around the next corner. It really instills the feeling that the Jews may have had during those times. The... More

Each person will have a different impression when they visit this impressive monument. Words that I would use to describe the experience would be different from someone else's, so I won't give you my thoughts. Suffice it to say that this is a moving memorial and well-worth visiting.

Very interesting and like a labyrinth. This is a vast memorial but is next to Brandenburg gate so would suggest a visit. Not great if you are seriously clostrophobic

Go. Everyone should. It's not for the faint hearted, which is exactly the point. Easily one of the most impressive parts of our trip to Berlin. And no, of course we didn't take any photos.

The Holocaust memorial brings feelings of terror and insanity. How could this have happened to all these innocent people.

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.
