2,711 concrete blocks comprise this somber memorial It is very unfortunate this even had to be constructed which represents a very dark moment in our world history. Across the street is the Memorial to Homosexuals persecuted under Nazism. This small nondescript concrete cube has a small window with a historical film running. The Holocaust Memorial is located near Brandenburg Gate... More

It's hard to describe this memorial in any other way than beautiful. The museum underneath should be viewed as it tells the true story and is very moving. Don't miss this off when visiting Berlin.

What a wonderful memorial. Quiet and evocative. So simple yet so complex. The German people will never forget this period in their history, and have learned from it.

only a couple of minutes walk away from the Brandenburg Gate worth a visit. Get lost in the rows of columns and find the exhibition below.

This is a must-see attraction, just to remember the brutality of humanity, but you cannot dedicate more than 5 minutes. So is recommended but nothing more.

Somber memorial to the past. Visit the underground museum next to it and it will provide an insight into the atrocities during WW2

The silence between the blocks leaves you touched and mortified. I reccomend visiting the museum downstairs too although I found it stifling (regarding the content).

A wonderfully bleak and abstract reminder of the victims of the Holocaust. It was very sad to see graffiti on some of the slabs (same as everything in Berlin) and to see people behaving badly there (running around and sitting on the slabs when instructions said not too) They seemed to be school trips - not impressed by the behaviour...

This tourist site is a must see in Berlin. We did not do the museum as there was quite a large queue. Always busy but never feels crowded.

The memorial is definitely worth seeing, so that we never forget what happened only 60-70 years ago. It's a very moving place to visit, and you can only understand the scale of it when you are there. Visit in the day, or early evening. There is a free tour of the visitor centre too.

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.
