Another must see in Berlin

The memorial itself is lovely to wander through. The museum (which is for age 14 years and over) is interesting, sad and humbling.

Always very crowded but worth the visit. Very near the Brandenburger Tor so when you go there you should definitely visit this beautiful and very impressive monument remembering all the Jews that were killed.

Learning about why this are not laid out in order, laid out of all different sizes and on undulating grounds, it is a amazing, but not as amazing as the museum underneath it. That really brought it home about the immensity of the memorial, recommend the audio tour which really helps the understanding and the heart breaking messages from families... More

It is one of the most important landmarks in Berlin. It is close to Branderburg gate and the entrance is free. It is such an impressive place!

We visited this memorial as part of our Insider Walking tour. It is an amazing sculpture and highly effective. It really does disorientate you and make you feel trapped. Very clever.

The memorial is very beautiful. It can be super crowded and yet standing among the blocks you can take a moment to yourself and feel like nobody is around you. The museum underground is a must-see. I recommend going early AM or near close because during the day is very busy with tour groups. The museum is broken into five... More

I didn't think I would get to see this but it's along the walk to the Brandenurg Gate. Definitely stop and wonder through it it. A very surreal experience.

You have to walk around this memorial to appreciate its size and impact. Well worth a visit, and close to other attractions.

you have to go inside. the feeling cannot be passed by picture, or film or anything. you need to go inside, experience the inhumanity, the detachment, the environment. very strong and impressive monument. we haven't been to the underground part, as it is closed on mondays. but the upper part is very impressive.

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.
