Interesting.

Very interesting memorial to visit. Finding Chinese tourists taking selfies on the stones is more than a touch disrespectful however.

I didn't really know what to expect - but I'm glad a saw it. Make sure you don't just see it. Walk through the guts of it and actually feel what it's about. Don't be a brat and climb all over it for your selfies - think about what it represents before being an obnoxious tourist. The most disappointing part... More

I was really impressed with how well designed the memorial was. The big blocks, which most people interpret as gravestones, are numerous and imposing; however, the space is really interesting to explore. It's impactful but somehow enjoyable at the same time.

The memorial is there, just in fron of you. Big blocks of concrete from all different sizes are standing nerabto each othet as a big wave. Try to walk between the stones when it is not to crowdy. Really impressive!

This Monument is very creative. Each concrete block looks like an above-ground grave. As you walk between the blocks you see others doing the same. As they move between the blocks they are fleeting images; here one moment, gone the next, now you see them, now you don't!!! Just like the lives that are being represented.

Not easy to comprehend, it is huge maze of concrete blocks. Somehow it transcends the serenity. One at or another, it does not leave you indifferent.

This really should be on everyone's list when in Berlin. A very impressive memorial with a good museum underneath.

This museum is a fitting and worthwhile tribute to all who perished and suffered during the holocaust. As someone who has visited many museums of this nature in both Germany and Israel, perhaps my hopes were a little too high for this. There wasn't the sober atmosphere that normally accompanies these sorts of places although that could have been to... More

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe Museum is a must-go for travellers who are interested in WWII. There's information about the war and concentration camps etc and also stories of individuals affected by WWII. It was a very personal and moving experience indeed. Going through the whole place would take about 1.5 - 2 hours. Admission is free,... More

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.
