It is a must see place in Berlin. This relatively simple concept monument carries a powerful message that overwhelms you once you start walking through the pillars.

This simple, but thought provoking Memorial to the Murdered Jews in Europe is centrally located just a few minutes walk from the Brandenburg Gate. The rows and rows of identical stelae at varying heights cleverly manage to convey an impression of space stretching out ahead of you, as well as feeling very claustrophobic. As you wander between them, you cannot be sure when you will come across somebody else, leaving one feeling slightly unnerved and disorientated.

No memorial is every going to truly reflect the horror of the Holocaust, but this allows the space for personal reflection.

This place is a must to visit. This will make you reallize the terror from Nazi time for Jews. There is a free museum with 3 Euro audio guide, incase you have welcome card then 50% discount. Must visit place

Poignant and thought provoking.... Interpreting it is down to the individual but, should be seen ... It makes you think

Went on the hop on hop off bus and this was one of the scheduled stops. Pretty crowded as pic shows but otherwise would recommend.
