Holocaust Memorial (Berlin)

The “Field of Staele” is open 24/7 throughout the whole year. Underneath the Holocaust Memorial you can find an Information Centre, where you can learn about the fate of the murdered Jews of Europe.

Opening times of the Information Center are daily except Mondays from 10AM to 8PM (last entrance 7:15PM)
