Spending a few minutes walking here was wonderful. It is a beautiful piece of art. I was there twice. On the second time, some people (kids and adults) were jumping between the rocks which made me quite worried. But other than that, I loved the experience.

Walked from Reichstag Building to here, initially I thought that this will be a museum house with pictures etc. When I arrived, I am amazed that this is huge attraction occupying a large land area. Felt like a child within gaints when walking around or walking through all these huge column/ block structures. Please note that these structures are of... More

We walked through the memorial. It is a very sombre experience. Something that should be seen but unless you go inside you don't know what it is representing.

The holocaust memorial was a great sight and a must see when visiting Berlin. The information and history in the free to enter museum was spectacular and it certainly brought home all the horrific antics during the war.

This is not a place to sit, this is not a place for "selfies", this is not a place to goof around in. You need to step outside of yourself to really experience this memorial. You need to reflect and take in what the memorial is truly suppose to make you feel. It is important to remain respectful in this... More

This is worth taking 10-15 minutes just to walk around and think about what the sculpture is trying to say. It is a very personal experience but just see what it says to you.

Berlin is full of historical sites and the Holocaust Memorial is certainly a center piece. From our hotel we jumped off here from the hop on hop off bus tour. Very sobering memorial.

A very clever & thought provoking memorial. It's worth taking the time to wander through. It's outdoors & quite a large area, so wear comfortable shoes. You'll get some interesting photos here.

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.
