Although you have to look through the bars to see Kollwitz's "pieta," it i nonetheless a very moving and beautiful statue. Her depictions of maternal grief cry out in two dimensions. In this statue, the emotion comes to life.

A most poignant statue commemorating the victims of war in a most central location. Worth seeing (and very near to the Babelplatz where the Book Burning Memorial is located).

The memorial is not something you would go out of your way to go to (unless on a special day of remembrance when it fills with flowers) ... but it is right between Museum Island and sites such as Humboldt Museum and the State Opera...More

Berlin has seen a lot of war and negative military history, which prompted the Government to built this memorial to all victims of war. It's housed in a fantastic Greek inspired building (see pic) and is guarded. Inside the building (free entry) is the actual...More

This is a war memorial. It is a lovely building with a sculpture inside. Worth a visit as it is in an area with lots of sight seeing places that have a link to war.

A beautiful and moving reminder of those sons lost in war. The sculpture and setting is a solemn memorial. The memorial can be freely viewed (I assume this always the case).

Remarkable memorial to those killed in the wars and the victims of fascism. The building is very interesting outside.

Here is a quiet, simple memorial to victims of war and facsism throughout history. The central statue is open to the air and is beautiful when covered with snow.

This is a very emotional place. The building is similar to the Pantheons all over Europe, but the inside is empty expect for the statue. It stands underneath an open part of the ceiling, so it can be pretty chilly inside.

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
