Saw the memorial but I just didn't understand what it was trying to say. Lots of different size concrete slabs that you could walk through like in a maze

I had the opportunity to visit this Memorial and I felt the hard vibe of that place, even knowing that it is only art that represents a story, can be felt in the air. I went at night and getting among the blocks was terrifying. There were people drinking alcohol, playing and urinating and I was scared I could not... More

Another must see in Berlin. It's definitely worth the journey and certainly gives you a lot to think about. Just try not to be offended by the hordes of young people running about and jumping all over it.

I'd been before during the day and it was a moving experience but, it was very busy with loads of other people around. This time, I visited in the evening and there wasn't anyone else there. It was a very moving experience wandering around in the dark. The memorial is not well lit but the darkness added to the effect.

A really interesting, thought provoking memorial. Totally worth walking around it and making your own opinions about how it makes you feel. Worth going down into the underground museum. Hard-hitting and a lot of reading but so informative and respectful.

An interesting and clever way of remembering those in the Holocaust. Be respectful - do not stand on the blocks to take pictures. Remember what awfulness this represents. Get lost in the space and your thoughts.

This monument touches a raw nerve. A walk down between the concrete blocks physically provokes anxiety, conveying some of the terror of what happened in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. Kudos to Germany for facing the darkest sides of their past. When will we see something similar in London or Madrid dedicated to slavery, or in Washington DC dedicated... More

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.
