You might not notice Neue Wache at first, which contains the main German memorial site for victims of war and tyranny. The best-known item in the museum is Käthe Kollwitz's sculpture "Mother with her Dead Son," on which Berlin's rain and snow falls directly. You may be left feeling a bit contemplative about the past after visiting this attraction. Make sure you are aware of the location, as some walk by without knowing what the simple building contains.

  • Berlin is a beautiful city, equipped for tourists, with various and efficient means of transport (bus-metro trains, etc.) It is a safe city, with many young people both day and night. There are also many restaurants with various prices and for all needs. I would definitely stay there again

  • It's amazing how this monument is touching, I never get tired of watching it. Transmits pain and loneliness. Too bad the written out are in German only.

  • Is emotionally impactful, but not worth a walk just to view this site. THERE is so much to see in Berlin, that time needs to be well divided. If you're close, it's worth knowing.

  • Probably my favorite place on Unter den Linden, with a beautiful replica of a statue of Käthe Kollwitz called "mother with dead son". It is a place to reflect upon what war means.
  • Small, beautiful memorial just west of museum island. Very thought provoking, I'd definitely recommend a visit.
  • A must see in Berlin. A very solemn sculpture that looks particular soulful when there's snow because there is a hole in the ceiling.
  • Very impressive monument. It capsules the pain felt when a son dies in battle.
  • Walk silently inside and stand in front of the statue. Here you can feel an impressive atmosphere, something so overwhelming that makes you forget the rest of Berlin.
