This is a war memorial. It is a lovely building with a sculpture inside. Worth a visit as it is in an area with lots of sight seeing places that have a link to war.

A beautiful and moving reminder of those sons lost in war. The sculpture and setting is a solemn memorial. The memorial can be freely viewed (I assume this always the case).

Remarkable memorial to those killed in the wars and the victims of fascism. The building is very interesting outside.

Here is a quiet, simple memorial to victims of war and facsism throughout history. The central statue is open to the air and is beautiful when covered with snow.

This is a very emotional place. The building is similar to the Pantheons all over Europe, but the inside is empty expect for the statue. It stands underneath an open part of the ceiling, so it can be pretty chilly inside.

Neue Wache was closed for restoration so we could not go in, but the exterior has been beautifully restored. By Karl Frederick Schinkel this small building has been repurposed many times in its history and mainly used as a memorial to war dead.

When walking Unter den Linden boulevard you will see this highlight of Classicism in Germany. Neue Wache is the Central Memorial of the Federal Republic of Germany for the Victims of War and Dictatorship.

Sadly due to construction I was only able to look in from the outside, but I've marked this as a place to return.

Kathe Kollwitz is a great artist. SHe has got an own museum near to Kurfürsterdamm. This monument is excellent. You stop in the middle of the busy city and remember. I would recommend to everyone to take some moments to stand by.

The building is nice but the real experience is taking in the beautiful and moving sculpture inside and to reflect on all of the victims of war and those left behind to grieve. The agony of the mother holding the body of her lifeless son...More

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
