This is a unique memorial and one that will make you stop and think about its purpose. It is next door to the US Embassy and about a block or so away from the Brandenburg Gate, so it is easy to find. It is a large area outdoors with hundreds of stone squares and rectangles rising to different heights and... More

Walked here in the ice and snow. Just walking through the black slabs felt alienating and terrible (not in the sense of bad, more awe inspiring). I have met holocaust survivors and refugees from Nazi Germany and the huge expanse of the blocks brought home the senselessness of it all, better than any words could express.

Walked past here and spent some time looking over it. To appreciate I suppose you really need to think about the history behind it. As it is basic in design, but it is what it represents that matters.

I went by this memorial monument several times a day during my business trip and every time I was taken by its power. It makes one stop and think.

It is important for people to think about each other. A very dramatic place with so much sadness. I hope that people can find peace when visiting this place.

Not much I can say about this museum other than it's well worth the visit It's very well laid out explaining the history and also telling the individual stories of some of the victims, it certainly makes you think.

An incredible moving experience. The above ground image is powerful and haunting, but the walk through museum downstairs is a must. Free of charge and pay 4 Euros for the audio tour - a great investment. You will learn things, and see things that bring an element of history to life with a bang. Take your time. Listen to all...

We turned a corner and just stumbled across this very moving monument. Comprising of hundreds of concrete block, of various sizes it's simplicity is quite moving. You can freely take photographs but you are not allowed to stand on the blocks. A huge site, the ground undulates and you can see this along the narrow gaps between the blocks. Another... 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.
