On 1st April 2013, Easter Monday and on 20th May 2013, Pentecost Sunday, the Information Centre will be open for visitors from 10am to 8pm (last entry 7.15pm.) In addition, the Service for Visitors will be offering at 3pm on both days a public tour in German free of charge.
We have learnt that Easter and the end of winter signal the beginning of the time where the Holocaust Memorial receives a greater number of visitors- a trend that usually continues until end of the year. In 2012 alone, there were 468,500 visitors at the exhibition as well as over 2,200 educational services being booked, such as group tours for pupils and adults, workshops and project days.
The city walk has also been proving very popular. Starting from the Holocaust Memorial, participants become acquainted with Berlin’s diverse memorial landscape by visiting the different commemorative sites in the vicinity. The walk takes around 3 hours and is offered in German, English, French, Polish, and Swedish.
