It was my second visit and both were intended to honor the memory of those who were killed. Each time, I learned more of the breadth of what happened and some of the personal details of lives that were snuffed out. Be sure to spend a few minutes on the paths above the museum to hear the sound of silence.

It was a sunny but crisp day to visit the memorial and walking through it was chilling as such a bleak, yet entrancing memorial to such a sad part of the city's history. This chill was also compounded as the stones retain the cold and sunlight is obscured between some of the higher blocks so you do feel the coolness... More

Truly harrowing and terrifying but it's not to be missed because of the lessons it gives us today from the recent past. Shows we can never be complacent. The memorial itself is appropriately symbolic and visually stark. Below ground is the information centre/museum. It'll blow your mind and move you to tears.

I felt that we stumbled upon this somewhat and were enjoying it as a piece of art and an experience before we realised what it represented. There could have been better signage. Saying that it is moving and draws you in

We were walking from Potsdamer Platz to the Brandenburg Gate & walked passed this memorial - it is huge, so we ventured inside & around it - it got dark quickly, but that seemed to make it even more spectacular. It is so big. The scale of this can not be read about - you have to visit - it... More

This fairly recent addition to the Berlin scene has over 2500 large concrete blocks located above the large underground memorial to the Holocaust victims. It is very moving and gives some idea of the scale of the atrocities carried out. A somewhat sobering visit but I believe an essential place that everyone should visit to ensure such awful acts must... More

You should visit here in order to understand the history. We could not find explanation of the purpose of the poles. However the monument is nicely implemented.

This memorial is so genius created, and so moving. Amazing aisles and lines reaching up to 4 meters high you can hear the silence but yet hear the visitors. Truly worth a visit.

A really interesting memorial. You make of it what you want.....there is no official notification of its meaning.

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.
