Monument in honor of the ruined Jews by the Nazis. The memorial complex has a rather interesting and unusual architectural solution, which accurately conveys the atmosphere of horror that reigned in Germany after Hitler came to power. The memorial consists of several rows of nameless gray tombstones of various sizes. They seem to form a maze and symbolize death and hopelessness.

Entering the site, it is more impressive than how it looks from the outside. Once you are in the centre, you do feel more closed off from your surroundings.
A wonderful memorial and museum that is like nothing I have ever seen.
Every stone is different and wandering along the rows not only captivates you but also disorientates you too. The museum is free for visitors and very interesting.
One of the best memorials ever done.
Truly breathtaking in its beauty and powerful in its presence. A masterpiece for such a tragic part of history.
The museum compliments it very well and is a great balance of text, story, interaction and immersion.. Read more ».

My one wish is that they should put clear signs that what you can listen to on the phones are stories from survivors. I thought it would be audio of the information of the room since there was a lot of text in that room, but my sister decided to listen and told me what it was, so I could listen too, and those stories were the most heartbreaking and powerful ones there. Please put up some clearer signs so more people get to experience those stories. They're important.

Superb monument to the memory of the victims. Museum is well worth a visit and very informative.
Must visit place if you are in berlin. But unforyunately the walls are getting old and not maintained, the paint has started to fade. But overall is okay. Catching sunset in here are amazing

A great memorial of the victims by the guilty nation. This is rare. The design and dimensions are such so it takes out humility of us as visitors.
"Loved it" is not the correct phrase, but this memorial is definitely worth a visit. Just around the corner from Brandenburg Gate, it seems to carry an aura of somberness and quiet you wouldn't expect in the centre of a city.

It stands for a time we must not forget.
A good reminder that the past can be repeated
Good for hiding from the family. But If you have kids be careful you might lose them
Very impressive spot, there is a sad story behind which made me down today.
A sobering, compulsory experience.
Beautiful place with a very sad story behind it you really should visit it when you are there
Even though I haven't been there before, I know it is a great place. At first it feels eerie, but it is hilarious. when hilarious things become reality, then it is no longer a joke.
All the best for them and Rest in Peace.
