A nice memorial representing the loss and sacrifices made by families and especially mothers. Mothers of enemy soldiers suffer just like mothers of our own soldiers. Are are ugly and people die. And when they die, they leave parents, spouses and children behind. This monument...More

This was really emotional. First I walked in the room and after that I read the explanation outside. Then I visited it again. It touched me. This monument has real character ❤️ Visit it if you have a possibility.

Amazing architecture and minimalism. Light enters from the rounded roof opening and creates mystical feeling in the premise. Be there during the mid-day for great experience.

Wheelchair Access - YES The 'now' has the potential to be emotive and evocative. The 'past' is old and interesting and slightly convoluted. Originally a German-Greek Revival (architect K F Schinkel) Guard House dating from 1816. Interior redesigned to be a memorial by Heinrich Tessenow...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

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
