Pay tribute to the fallen soldiers of World War II with a visit to the humbling and imposing Sowjetisches Ehrenmal Treptow. Built between 1946 and 1948, the site serves as a cemetery for 5,000 Soviet soldiers. Memorial slabs and frescoes arranged in long tiers depict the course of the war. An awe-inspiring mausoleum marks the focal point of the memorial, featuring the statue of a soldier carrying a rescued German child. The mausoleum commemorates the 80,000 Red Army soldiers killed in the Battle of Berlin from April to May, 1945. It is the second-largest war memorial in the country, and the largest anti-fascist memorial in Western Europe.

  • Recommended especially for nostalgic of hammer and sickle; the victory of the Red Army and the sacrifice of many Soviet soldiers are here celebrated Majestic Monument in a park when so much awesome. Russia mourns mother, facing a Soviet soldier armed with a sword that saves a German child while boot stomps a swastika in the Middle, two enormous triangular structures and the imposing marble blocks that represent the Soviet Socialist Republics, with reliefs of scenes of war and Stalin's phrases imprinted on one side ... all surrounded by a large park. Beautiful.

  • It's probably not the place, which is at the top of the must see list for many, but it is worth the trip, if you want to see something completely different in Berlin. You will be greeted by great propaganda for the Soviet era, with large sculptures and quotations. At the top of the park there is a large Memorial to fallen soldiers. It takes a little time to get out to the Park, but it's worth the walk along the river and "off the beaten track". The cool thing about Berlin is that the story will be told from all sides, and this is important to get with Treptower Park.

  • Spacious complex, very well maintained. Little phatetische sayings of Mr. Stalin, has to be seen of course also differentiated! In the face of the many victims, especially of the civilian population and not only soldiers and not to forget the women of this war is not big enough.

  • Not a shred of irony. Quotes by Stalin intact. A monument to Soviet triumphalism. Well worth the visit, summer or winter.
  • A both intimate and impressive place made of a wide alley leading to the memorial surrounded by massive soviet sculptures and trees. One of my favorite place in Berlin after a few days.
  • calm and sad place. Should visit If you want to see some world war 2 memories
  • For me, this was the most beautiful place I saw when I visited Berlin.
  • Soviet in scale. Solemn, impressive and with an interesting history that more visitors should maybe be aware of.
