Bebelplatz, Berlin

4.0
Head to Bebelplatz in the central district to view the site of the infamous May 10, 1933, Nazi book burnings, when more than 20,000 books were burned by the nationalist German Student Association. Bordered by the state opera, buildings of Humboldt University, and St. Hedwig's Cathedral (the first Catholic church to be built in post-Reformation Prussia), the plaza now features a memorial to help remember not only the loss incurred during the book burning, but all the devastation that was carried out by the same hands. To fully experience the memorial, visit after dark. Make your Berlin itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • It is the buildings that tell a story here, for life in the brewery and local culture you can go better to other districts. In the middle of the square the famous monument that reminds the book burning during the Nazi dictatorship; That is why a visit to this square is worthwhile. The famous rules of Heine are engraved in a tile.

  • A clean and welcoming plaza that beguiles its infamous history. To their credit, the locals acknowledge this with a plaque in the pavement.
  • You really need a guide to explain about the history of this place and what happened at this spot. It is of course the place of the famous book burning. This thought provoking stunning memorial is so ingenious. Just see the floor and you can see the open part. Take a camera with lot of space and even battery life. You are going to capture amazing views. The view from the cruise is also just amazing..
