9th place
Auschwitz was, to me, the worst and most depressing place on Earth I've been to. In the future, there is so much over-population, the Earth has become a series of enormous polluted cities. In this particular future city, literally the only way to get away from the overwhelming buildings is to walk on the earth where countless innocents were murdered a century and a half ago. In the future, there is always winter, there is inescapable fog, and there is no happiness to be found.
