Great tour of a disturbing place

Our guide Philippa was very knowledgeable and gave us a harrowing account of life in the camp. A must see if you visit Berlin.

We were met by our friendly tour guide, Maria. She provided us with a very detailed and informative tour. We were part of a small group which was very good. Maria was very attentive to us all.

This was a long day but well worth the effort. Our guide was extremely informative and being a small group made the experience even better. A very reflective day and one that we won't forget in a hurry. Thanks to our guide Phillipa.

Although it was a long day, myself and my family found this trip fascinating and of course sad. We went with Insider Tour tour guide Mike and we thought he was very passionate, informative and kept us interested for the entire day!

I’m glad that our guide in Berlin recommended Mosaic for our trip to Sachsenhausen. Our guide recommended this company for their knowledge, small group size and their not for profit status. After a few emails back and forth we opted for a private tour with Ioana. Ioana is extremely knowledgeable about all facets of German history and also has focused... More

Went 18/03 with Insider Tours and Maria as our guide. As a guide she was first rate with an in depth knowledge of her subject. The trip starts with about a 25/30 min train ride from Berlin then about a mile walk from the station to the site. The tour last about 3.5 hours which flies as you never seem... More

So firstly, you do not need a guide to visit this place, whether it is with Mosaic or anyone else. You can make your own way here, pay for an audio guide and tour the memorial in your own time and at your on pace. However, a guide adds an extra dimension to the information you would hear or see.... More

We had a very favorable experience with Phillipa as our guide this past week, she was extremely knowledgeable on the subject matter yet explained it more as a conversation between friends as opposed to just spewing facts. I would recommend this tour, Mosiac is the only not for profit company doing the daily tours of the camp, makes it even... More

Definitely not an easy topic to view or discuss but Phillipa was an excellent tour guide. Despite the cold weather she was energetic and engaging. As a gender historian she gave a social viewpoint rather than just cold hard facts. Overall the tour was excellent and as a nonprofit, I think the cost was money well spent. Tour was 15... More

Our tour guide Philippa was very knowledgable and engaging. We spent the perfect amount of time in each area of the site, so that the tour didn't feel to drawn out. Despite the heavy subject matter I believe this tour is very worthwhile, to acknowledge the past and learn from it. Ps: taking selfies in this site seems a bit... More

Staying in Mitte

Neighborhood Profile
Mitte
The center of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum Island. The central location makes this one of the city's most expensive places to live. It is here the oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence of some significant transformations, as well. The gangsters that once ruled the impoverished streets between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given way to an international crowd pursuing fashionable designer clothes, the newest food trends and frequenting the many craft shops. Graphic designers have taken up residence in what used to be backyard barns and stables. There are still vestiges of the old days, however. The occasional housing complex is a reminder of the neighborhood’s past. And if you look carefully, an old 1920s ball house nestled amongst the art galleries and exhibitions of Auguststrasse can still teach you how to dance the old fashioned way.
