What a fantastic tour! Our guide Fran was interesting and respectful, showed us really fascinating bits of a terrible time. She was sensitive about the subject matter but didn’t try to hide anything or downplay it. Would highly recommend both the tour and Fran!

Highly recommend this guided tour to anyone and everyone interested in visiting Sachsenhausen concentration camp (which I suggest you do). Our tour guide Phil was fantastic. Very friendly and knowledgable, answering all questions along the way. This tour is very emotional, but definitely worth while.

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
