It is a very large memorial inviting to reflect and remembering but some people find it more interesting to run around and make loud noise which bothers a bit the purpose and lacking the respect for this place. It is not the quiet place I hoped for but it get's its point a cross - the loneliness and hopelessness and... More

A very moving walk around the holocaust memorial in the centre of Berlin. Thousands of sculpted blocks each representing hundreds and hundreds or individuals and their families systematically wiped out. Heard and studied so much about it, to be in the middle of where it happened and seeing everything so apparently normal reminds me of a quote from Hannah Arendt... More

The initial impression was this was a jumble of blocks but as you walk into them the ground drops and you are dwarfed among the towering grey oppressive blocks. Then we discovered the museum. Very moving displays which affected us all. Powerful and thought provoking.

The memorial and attached museum are very well run and looked after. I think you need at least 3 hours to access a lot of the information which is available here

The visit to the holocaust memorial reminded us of the sad history of the Germany. The monument itself is impressive and it transmits an air of sobriety.

Walking deep into the monument alone, between the tall stones provides a curious place for thoughtful reflection. The underground museum presents lots of information on how the holocaust developed, well presented in a captivating manner.

We went to the memorial and decided to go to see the museum. It was a 10 minute wait due to security but was worth it. Recently, I visited Auschwitz and I wanted to see the German memorial to see if any difference. I thought it was a fitting and very well organised tribute/reflection on the holocaust. Some rooms are... 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.
