Good for a quick visit

It doesn't really take long to visit to have a quick look around, what you see is what you get. If you go, visit the museum downstairs

This is a must see. The construction is ingenious and allows you to draw out your own meaning. It is stark, symbolic and sensitive. By it's design, the floor level varies so might be difficult fir people with mobility or balance difficulties. I am partially sighted and I managed fine. Close by is the reputed site of Hitler's bunker.

The scale of this is immense and a fitting memorial to the suffering. However, it saddens me to see people standing on the slabs and taking selfies. Go when its quiet and take a moment to think about what it actually means.

We also visited the museum that is free to look around, lots of boards to read but interesting. If busy be prepared to wait outside as they only let about 8 people in at a time as you have to go through security procedures, although we were not in the queue for long.

We stopped briefly here during our Fat Tire Bike Tour (big recommendation) and found it to be one of many sites that are very nicely considered. We were told that the stone pillars were laid out in such a way as to give you a slight claustrophobic and uneasy atmosphere, which it does. A somber reminder to us all.

The holocaust memorial is a powerful symbol of those who lost their lives in the holocaust , 6 millions Jews, gays, disabled and mentally ill people. This comes to remind us all how valuable life is, but it's very sad for me to see so many disrespectful people treat this memorial as a theme park without even caring why its... More

This is a place to meditate. And to meditate on the name chosen for the site. It is a spot where locals hang out, and grab some sun (assuming the sun is out), but it is also a place where one can think about the atrocities of the 1930's and 1940's and ask 'why would anyone allow someone to lead...

This is around the corner from the Brandenburg Gate and well worth the time to see. When viewed from the perimeter it seems all the blocks are level and in order but as you walk through the ground gets uneven and the blocks lean in toward each other. This was to represent the feeling of uneasiness and fear felt by... More

This memorial was designed by an American and is one of a kind. It has to be seen to get a feel of the sadness it portrays. One bad point is that the Blocks are starting to crack and some have been repaired. Poor workmanship ??

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.
