The architect Daniel Libeskind wanted people to feel disorientated and vulnerable when walking through the concrete blocks via the cobbled uneven walkways, and from the experience of my whole family it defiantly does that. We felt seasick and enclosed - although it does what it's suppose to unless you read up on it first you would never understand. It is... More

Right in the middle of the city, which was on purpose by the developers. It really takes your mind back a few steps to pay tribute those it represents. The muesuem is free which was great and very informative.

Very powerful and moving. Be sure to walk all the way through to the center of the exhibit. Best time to go is early morning when there are fewer people there.

You can't be in Berlin without visiting the area of Brandenburg gate/ the raichstag and the memorials, These memorial is so important to feel the bad history of Germany and Europe and it started right there The memorial is giving you the feeling of uncertainty and the size of the disaster

I don't really understand the memorial itself, it's a very utilitarian & austere looking thing. Underground the free museum is interesting- but almost overloads you with text. Luckily it doesn't take too long to get through & I liked the fact you could follow what happened to some families as you progress through one room. Clean & free toilets there... More

Meaningless bunch of stones, signifying nothing. Too obtuse, deeply disappointed. There should be no room to be indirect about this subject.

This is a must do on bucket lists. It's hard to explain the sensation you feel when you are there. It was a shame that some teenagers there appeared to be using it like a maze and yelling and running around.

this is a great site with its special architectural installation. I was overwhelmed but couldn't help marvel at how powerful the architect could have achieved with his brilliant work. I find it absolutely disturbing though when there were 4 youngsters jumping on top of the cement structure, and hopping from one to another with glee, chanting as if they were... More

Worth the visit. The memorial is incredibly moving. Has a museum under the ground. It is a must see.

Walk among the blocks of granite and you forget you are within the city. It is a worthy stop on a walk around Brandenburg gate and other central Berlin sites. You can get the designer's idea of this installation - this exists within the rest of the city life- just as the holocaust did.

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.
