The monument is really impressive and at the same time terrifying. I am so mad when I see people that jump or take selfies with this monument. Overall worth visiting and learning something about history. Please have some respect!

Great to visit. A haunting memory. A hollowing feeling sweeps through you as you walk alone through the concrete pillars. Do not disrespect the area by sitting nor standing on these. This is a unique memorial, where each person has a different experience. Definite must visit.

This memorial is not for everyone. Lets say that you have to be serious enough to visit this place. If you can I highly recommend going there with guide who will tell specifics and a bit of history involved. I was very touched. And please people stop taking stupid photos there...

We visited this just as the sun was setting so we didn't get a chance to go into the information centre to read the history etc. We had a quick wander through the maze like structures, later read that this was to represent the disorganization at that time which now makes sense.

I came to the memorial not really knowing what to expect. I heard a lot of people saying they were heavily impacted by it and others that say they were left indifferent by it. for me it was definitley very moving. as you decend into the cemetery-looking memorial, you very quickly get the feeling that you are confined, trapped, with...

Sobering reminder of the wickedness of men. Must visit when visiting Berlin. The museum underneath helps to put things in perspective. May nothing anything close to this ever happen again.

First of all - this is a memorial to the jews murdered in the abomination that was the second world war. This is a place that deserves the utmost respect so please refrain from taking stupid pictures here or fooling around. This is NOT the place for this kind of behaviour. The monument consists of multiple concrete slabs with room... More

Before I went I'd read that the designers aim was to slightly disorientate you and disconnect from the world around you. Definitely achieves that. Place for some reflection on the history of the site. Visitor centre sombre but very interesting, explains the history very well.

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.
