It seems very emotionless, and frankly quite pointless. It bared no resemblance to a holocaust memorial and the blocks were basically used for people to stand on and take selfies. Not worth the visit and very disappointing.
Happened to find this on my early morning walk with only one oriental tourist about, taking pictures. It was toucing to walk down the ”valley” along the corridors lined up with huge stone blocks. So very impressive.
A brilliant piece of artwork/sculpture in the heart of a capital city. Designed over a large area of space and haunting with its ability to be able to “hide “ people by gentle undulations in the surface. The differing sizes of the blocks is also...More

This is a great way to gain a strong understanding of the horror of this era in human history. Our teenagers gained a lot of knowledge and we were reminded of previous visits to concentrating camps. The headphones are a must to fully immerse yourself...More
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.
