We thought we'd go for 15-20 minutes just to see the site, but ended up spending more than an hour walking around, taking pictures. Eerie experience, and a peaceful get away from Berlin's city chaos. Definitely recommended.

Gleis 17 is not a big iconic memorial like the one in the city center. At the original platform where the trains that deported Jews left, is indicated along the track on what dates trains left and how many Jews were on that train. The combination of date - number of Jews - destination is brutal in its simplicity.

Next to the normal train "Gleis", you can find the Gleis 17. You will see pro day, the number of "Juden" which have been sent to the camp.. It is really impressive

A must for every man and woman. A most important memorial. Very powerful. Pay attention to the written information on the railways blocks. 3 other memorials near by. Don't miss them. Best to take a guided tour.

A powerful place to visit...with my guide was 5 stars. However, had we not had a guide I don't think we would have understood much there...so it gets a 3 star rating.
