The Holocaust and what Jews had to live during that time is a key to understanding and knowing Berlin. This memorial and it's neighborhood are an important part of that historical disaster and, therefore, are worth visiting. However, I recommend doing it with a guide,...More

In the midst of busy streets you find this quiet place, with only one gravestone left, and a small memorial. For me it was many times more impressive than the big Holocaust Monument

Stumbled upon this somber Jewish cemetery where Moses Mendelssohn is buried. It's a place of quiet solitude. There is some signage in several languages dictating the history, including the destruction by the national socialists in 1943. A reminder of the rich Jewish history in Berlin.

The Alter Jüdischer Friedhof is an old, well preserved Jewish spot of Berlin. It carries a sad history, but still nice if you like this kind of attractions.

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
