I was so looking forward to seeing the memorial, it was top of my list of things to see in Berlin. I have to say I found it quite underwhelming. Although people have made their assumptions on what the architect/ artists were trying to achieve when creating this, I found it hard to engage with and it didn't feel very... More

It goes with out saying everybody has to remember the souls that had no choice in the wars, it is a must and not far from the brandenburg gate.

The exhibition above ground is so-so, but the museum underneath is fantastic. Completely free, multi-lingual and absolutely harrowing. I learned things I've never known before and it's quite depressing but definitely worth experiencing. It's airport level security to get in so expect queues and baggage scans.

Again, what can one even say or try to comprehend how it was for people who lived the experience. Standing there looking at the memorial made me realize how little people know or even respect of others. There were younger people I would say in their 20's and 30 thirties who were jumping from memorial to memorial like it was... More

Need to walk it to experience what artist is suggesting, such as isolation, brevity of life, surprises.

We walked around the memorial and it is a very unusual monument. Walking through the striking black columns was an interesting experience – the columns aren’t built on one level so when you walk through the columns it’s an enjoyable experience. It is unfortunate that there is only one free tour, once a week in English to go around the... More

One is saddened when viewing the Holocaust memorial. To think that so many innocent people were affected by this .

So simple, this memorial lets you feel the eerie-ness in the air as you walk amongst the plain concrete blocks. At varying heights, the blocks block out noise from the main roads and can create a telling silence. Although in pictures, this memorial may not seem to have much historical information on show, it speaks a thousand words. Free and... More

The holocaust memorial is a very interesting and sobering experience which in my opinion is a 'must see' site whilst in Berlin. It is free to access the site and walk through. There is a lot of information about the holocaust which is interesting, but perhaps a frustration to those that may not want to read a large amount

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.
