Very memorable memorial

This is worth taking 10-15 minutes just to walk around and think about what the sculpture is trying to say. It is a very personal experience but just see what it says to you.

Berlin is full of historical sites and the Holocaust Memorial is certainly a center piece. From our hotel we jumped off here from the hop on hop off bus tour. Very sobering memorial.

A very clever & thought provoking memorial. It's worth taking the time to wander through. It's outdoors & quite a large area, so wear comfortable shoes. You'll get some interesting photos here.

I have been here many times. It always creates a sense of awe and profound appreciate for the people it memorializes. Viewing and walking within the memorial leaves one with an internal sense of the experiences past and present.

This very special holocaust memorial is very large. It spans a whole block. It looks also a little bit a labyrinth.

Not only is this a work of creative genius but an emotional journey for all who visit. History becomes very personal. The events of the last world war take very personal form when seen through the lens of particular people and families. A powerful statement that the modern world needs to hear over and over again. Past, present and future... More

This haunting memorial to victims of the Holocaust is best experienced first, studied later. The memorial's 2,711 stelae are arranged in a grid on rolling ground. They look like sarcophagi, but the murdered didn't get that kind of burial. On the memorial's edges, some stelae are only 8 inches tall; walk farther in and they tower 15 feet, overwhelming you...

Staying in Mitte

Neighbourhood Profile
Mitte
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 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 neighbourhood’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.
