This memorial leaves really great impression. It looks like a labyrinth with the stones of different size.

The artistic way of memorising the Holocaust with the grave like symbols was very touching. At night it was almost like a maze. Underneath / under ground was the Holocaust memorial museum, free of charge and was fascinating and touching.

Beautiful and reflective memorial to the Holocaust. Allow yourself ample time to wander and think about the atrocities that occurred in the past, and where the city stands now.

They say all these blocks are for you to use your imagination but I don't get it. I would rather have something that means something so I could understand it. This would make a great place for a hide and go seek or capture the flag game if it didn't have its sentimental reasons for being built. Hard to enjoy.

The memorial it self is gorgeous, i think it's a must of Berlin, but if you have a little more time I would recommend you to go to the subterranean museum, free entry, and only €4/€2 for the audio guide (if you're a student or not) which i found really helpful and informative.

This small exhibition has poignant family histories which give a real perspective to the horrors of the Holocaust. The exhibition is thoughtfully arranged and also includes fragments of letters, cards and messages from individuals.

Very moving maze of stones that almost looks like a puzzle, but with exits everywhere. It is worth a visit.

This maze of of stone blocks is surprisingly moving - shame that some of the other tourists didn't understand the sombre meaning of this memorial.

I thought the information was excellent, you could hear a pin drop whilst moving through the centre underneath reading all the information. Some truly terrible stories of Jewish families. Very, very sad but needs to told and remembered.

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.
