Neue Wache is today one of the several fine places in Berlin to remember the horrors of war, and to do in in a respectfull way.
the pietà by käthe kollwitz is something you should not miss. it's a very stark building, we visited on a cold cloudy day in november, so the atmosphere was dark and bleak. very fitting for the neue wache.
This memorial to victims of conflict was one of the most moving I experienced in my visit to Berlin. It is profound in its simplicity. A beautiful sculpture captures the heartache, waste and devastation that intolerance, war and civil conflict bring, more succinctly than any words are able. A tragic back story to its creation ads to this.
One of the most moving war memorials I have been to. Kathe Kollwitz's Pieta in the stark interior says more about the loss in war than rows of names. Like others have said, it is a place for quiet contemplation so try to pick a time when there are few people there.
