I recently visited this memorial in Berlin, it was well worth the visit and the long queues for the underground information centre. I found it very moving (several people were in tears, including me) and informative. The Room of Families was particularly sad, with pictures...More

Worth a visit. Take a moment of quietness and walk up or down the monument. Was there before night fall.

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

There is no cost. You can just walk in to the sculpture from the street. It is also suitable for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
