Holocaust Memorial

Holocaust Memorial, Berlin

Planning to visit the Holocaust Memorial? See our information below!


Surely one of Berlin’s most impressive sights is the Holocaust Memorial, a powerful monument to commemorate the millions of Jews murdered in Europe. Located in the city centre, the Holocaust memorial consists of 2,700 stones, all different in shape and size, symbolising all the different types of people who became victims of the Holocaust.

Here you can walk through the metre-high, grey concrete blocks, as the stones are made up of different sizes and shapes, this gives you the feeling that the monument is ‘undulating’. Combined with the undulating floor, this has a rather disorienting effect on visitors. And it perfectly captures how the Jews must have felt during this terrible time.

At the Holocaust Memorial, there is also an accompanying visitor centre. Here, the exhibition is particularly good and will move you to tears.
