Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Select tour language
Head north of Berlin for a tour into the past at Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, one of the main concentration camps in Nazi Germany. While you explore the memorial site with a guide, you'll learn the history of the camp and those imprisoned here, providing an essential background to Germany's past and present.
  • Hear sensitive, in-depth commentary about the concentration camp’s history
  • Travel via train, which gives you time to ask your guide questions
  • Tips on the rest of your Berlin visit from a provided city guide and map
  • Gain a better understanding of events during the Holocaust and the Third Reich
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group at the Hackescher Markt S-Bahn station in Berlin in time for your train’s departure. On the way to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, take in the scenery and listen to an orientation to the somber sights you are about to encounter.  Once you arrive, take off on a walking tour of the site. Your visit will be shaped by the sensitive and illuminating commentary from your guide, who will paint a picture of the daily lives of more than 200,000 people who spent time there.  Learn important background history of the site as you walk through the the Jewish Barrack, the execution grounds and crematorium, the Appellplatz parade ground, the punishment cells, camp hospital, Station Z, and the Pathology Laboratory. Set against the context of the larger Holocaust and the activities of the Third Reich, this tour will help you gain a wider understanding of the events of that time period. Return to Berlin via train, with plenty of time to ask questions of your guide on the way back.

Very good and emotionally evocative tour with Xavier which was well worth the time and money. The post-tour discussion and questions with Xavier were very interesting who was both patient and willing to go "off-script" to answer all our questions.
