The design is captivating and beautiful. Walking through the columns were of random heights and walking through the rows a glimpse of people to the left and right came and went. I was very touched. Beautiful/sad place.

The museum lies beneath the installation monument and contains a fabulous collection of personal and historical records which help to put a human perspective on the huge numbers of the holocaust we've all become numb to. It was one of the very few times I've been in a museum where no one was speaking, no one was rushing, no one... More

Visited the monument and exposition (a definite must-do) on our first day in Berlin. It really left an impression. It's free, so go in and let it overwhelm you.

In all honesty this is a pretty poor effort to mark what was done. It's almost as if it is not meant to be particularly permanent! I guess the design will appeal to some but as a monument it does not come close to (say) the Brandenburg Gate. Even the interior is not that inspired in my opinion.

Go on a bright sunny day. A sad experience but still needs to be taught. A series of hard facts reinforced by personal histories.

obviously this is a hard thing to get right - a memorial to the unspeakable acts by Europe just over 50 years ago. this unique work perfectly captures all the multitudes of feelings towards this dark period of history. it is stunning, take a walk around the large stone blocks and let the emotions and the feelings swarm over you....

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.
