A huge work across an enormous area. You don't realise how deep they are till you venture into the centre. Thought provoking. Spend some time there & let your mind wander.

A must see to understand the magnitude of death in the Second World War. A clear explanation of year by year what and things happened. Impactfull almost elegant without being goory.

Walking through this representation of the lives lost during the Holocaust makes the horror of the Nazis' inhumanity more real. The Memorial is near the Brandenburg Gate, the Reichstag, and other important sights, so seeing it can easily be part of a larger tour.

The centre 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

of some significant transformations, as well. The
gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets
between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given

The open-air memorial works like a public space; there is no gate, no entrance fee, you can enter from any side at any time of the day or night.
