Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.

  • 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  more »
  • 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...  more »

  • Another “must” to reflect on the inhumanity of man – look and weep. The Museum is under the stones - easy to miss. Unfortunately, I had to give the museum only 4 starts because we found that it was not family friendly. If you have young children, save it for another time. Our daughter was 8 at the time of our visit and we had to take it in turns trying to look after her away from the exhibit. We choose the book shop as the most appropriate location, however, we were glared at by the very unfriendly and frost shop lady and soon made a hasty exit.
  • An old destroyed jewish graveyard. At first sight it just looks like a green field but that's kind of part of it's history as the graveyard got destroyed. when you walk through you will see some old gravestones. Really peaceful inside, but as next to it is a jewish school, many school kids sit around normally during day times and it can easily get quite noisy.
  • The oldest Jewish cemetery in the city of Berlin (not taking into account the Jewish Cemetery in Spandau, which no longer exists). The philosopher Moses Mendelssohn was berried here. The cemetery was destroyed by the Gestapo. Only few gravestones survived and Mendelssohn's grave has been reconstructed.
  • Site of an old Jewish cemetery that is now a mass grave. The one reconstructed grave is of Moses Mendelssohn. The entire area is well maintained, covered with ivy, with quiet walking paths. The statues by the front are very thought provoking, and you will see where the pebbles by the front gate are replaced on a daily basis.
  • Nothing particular, 2000 cement blocks to symbolize the Holocaust. Honestly I expected more
