After guided tours of the Holocaust Memorial have been taking place since 25 May 2020 – with great resonance – we have decided to expand our free offer at the same time as the reopening of the exhibition. In addition to the daily guided tours at 3 p.m., there will now be more at 11 a.m. A free city walk, every Sunday at 12 o’clock, gives a variety of insights into the Berlin landscape of remembrance and leads to the monuments in the vicinity of the Holocaust Memorial, including the Sinti-and-Roma monument or the memorial site for the “euthanasia” victims.”
