Holocaust MemorialFree: All time

Also known as the Holocaust Memorial, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe is a memorial to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust. The outdoor area is covered with 2,711 concrete slabs arranged in a grid pattern on a sloping field. These stelae are designed to evoke an uneasy, confusing atmosphere, and the whole sculpture aims to represent a supposedly ordered system that has lost touch with human reason. There’s also an underground Information Center with photographs and statistics of the Holocaust. The project was first met with a lot of criticism. Today, it is a landmark in Berlin that tourists from all over the world visit.
