  • Holocaust Memorial Berlin – Check out the official Holocaust memorial, designed by German architect Peter Eisenman and entrenched in German Jewish history.
  • Jewish Museum Berlin – Trace Germany’s Jewish history from the Roman Age to the present day at the Jewish Museum in Berlin. This silvery, steel-clad building represents the most significant example of contemporary architecture in Berlin.
