Very easy place to visit without a need for a guide. We got the regional train from the central station in Berlin and walked to the camp from the train stop. It’s free to go into the camp and we bought a map for 50...More

The tour of Sachsenhausen was very good. Our guide Mike did a good job of explaining the history of the site and spent plenty of time answering questions in depth. The experience is sobering and the reality, really hits home. My one suggestion is maybe...More

Very kind and compassionate staff and a museum that reminds us what can happen if we lose our compassion for our fellow human beings. We were unveiling a memorial and were joined by a senior member of staff, a very compassionate and thoughtful gesture. An...More

Forget all the nasty things that went on here, just stand outside in a biting November east wind and that is enough to make you feel despondent. What is left of this place is well done. Mainly you get the idea of the scale. A...More

My partner mentioned this tour to me for our trip to Berlin and I was skeptical as it is around 35km away! I was completely wrong, this was one of the most informative and educational days I have ever experienced. I booked through Trip Advisor...More

Go with a guide. The walk from Oranienburg Station to the camp is far. A guide will explain some history during the walk as well. You could ask questions if you have a guide. The camp is very huge, so with a guide you... More
