We were not aware of this memorial and glad we came across it while walking. The history on the displays gave us a sad insight of these people, we were actually not aware of. The actual memorial of the 'flower on the stone' was barricaded when we visited. We then from here walked to Brandenburg Gate and the other memorials.

On the edge of Tiergarten, near the Reichstag and Badenburg Tor, this monument has excellent, informative information and has a lovely quiet presence.

This memorial is quiet and simple. A small circular lake with a singular flower placed in the centre each day.

This memorial is located near the east end of Tiergarten, between Brandenburg Gate and Reichstag. It is a simple and solemn tribute to the Sinti and Roma who were labeled as 'gypsies' and murdered under rule of the National Socialist Regime between 1933-1945. Created by Israeli sculptor, Dani Karavan, the memorial consists of a small reflection pool and a retractable... More

It's right on the path between the Reichstag and Brandenburg gate, in Tiergarten. It's a small, quiet and solemn memorial which is worth going to since you'll most probably be close to it.

The place is a nice tribute to people murdered during nazism, a solemn and peaceful place. There are leaflets with information in several languages too. But something that bothered me, and I'd like to warn people about, is that there are some scammers that stay on the outside of it (where people generally stay to read the information panels), insisting...

This memorial is a sobering reminder of the often overlooked victims of the Third Reich - the Sinti and Roma. There is a brief abbreviation of the timeline of the Nazis crimes against them printed on a wall in both English and German; this wall also serves to give this place some privacy. The memorial itself is beautiful, subtle but... More

This place is only a few steps away from the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag so it's easy to include. We were trying to hit all the memorials so we sought it out. Glad we did. It's a quiet setting in a corner of the Teirgarten close to the bustle of Berlin. Glad we spent a few moments here.

Information available in English. Simple but makes one think. Can easilly miss it - it is very small, between the cannal and Tiergarden. Very small, takes very little time.

You can easily pass it by, on the left side along the path from the Bundestag. But do take a minute to walk into a small yard with a shallow pool, with an endless story in written along the rim... Makes one think again.

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
