This is a slightly disturbing and very thought-provoking monument to the thousands of Jews who were transported from here to concentration camps and, usually, their deaths during World War 2. The railway platforms that were used to load human cargoes for the eastern camps have...More

This memorial was simple and very effective. It is a quiet place but evokes very strong emotion. I found it affected me more than the memorial for the Jews in the centre. I really recommend going to see this.

If place is important to you, whether there is much monument or not, then these few yards of rail track and some simple metal grids with names and dates will be powerful. If you are coming from Berlin on the S7, come down the stairs...More

Trip Advisor directions will take you to a nearby neighborhood. The memorial is accessed from WITHIN the train station. Just take the stairs by the sign.

Such a quiet yet historic place. The quietness contrasts with the history of the place. We were lucky to visit in a very sunny day which makes it a little less sad but very important to never forget. Not to be missed.

We went to see this "Mahnmal" early morning and were alone apart from a few joggers. Not much to say about it, just how sad this is. But very respectfully done. Please allow this some time in your trip to Berlin.

The german train company memorial site for the murder of the Berlin jewish citizens. It’s the actual railroad next to grunewald station. If we will not visit, weeds will cover the ramps.

This is at Grunwalde station, just a 20 minute trip on the S bahn from central Berlin but right beside the forest which is a lovely day out from the buzzy city. The Gleis 17 is where thousands of Jews were forced on trains headed...More

This memorial to 50000 Jews deported to various concentration camps is very moving. It is the site of a freight yard used for deportations. The original rails remain and the platforms have been transformed with plates highlighting dates, numbers and destination of those deported. It...More
