Interesting memorial as the artist designed this abstract memorial for you to interpret. With uneven ground and different sizes to each column. It is up to you to wander around and take in whatever you feel.

A stark visual reminder of the Jewish lives lost in holocaust. Concrete cubes resemble tombs and give visitors an opportunity to wander and reflect upon their own memories or knowledge about the events of the past. Very thought provoking and provocative.

Coud seem like a simple idea to just have stones lined-up to commemorate the Jewish genocide But if you have visited the Jewish Museum before, it was bright to express the consequences of the nazist machine without words but stones of the same colors and different heights. Some tourist were playing on the stones, going from the top of one... More

This memorial is a powerful symbolic expression of the holocaust. The cement blocks start out relatively small, and increase in size to very tall pieces. The memorial is like a maze, in the midst of it, one can orientate yourself by looking up to see the sky. It symbolizes a cold, grey/dark, confusing, horrible time in history for Jews, and... More

This memorial is one of the most heart wrenching we have ever visited. It was so imposing. I can't really explain how I felt when I entered one of the corridors but I had the same sick feeling in my gut as I had when we went to auschwitz. Heartbreaking really.

This was a beautiful, poignant and dramatic memorial and well worth a visit and a cheeky wonder around. If your on a tight time line you can do this in 15 minutes if not stay a while.

It's a very solemn memorial to remember the history of the war, yet it's also a nice spot for photoshooting.

This felt like a somber place as I believe it was suppose to. The architecture has a more modern feel to it (understandably so as to when it was built). Not top on my list of things to see but not at the bottom either.

An artistic memorial with lots of "true" meaning. Spend a little time just walking around and thinking about how unsettling the world can be.

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.
