Sachsenhausen is a place with an overwhelming amount of history associated with it, so I was very grateful to be on a guided tour. The leader Bryan did an excellent job of using the camp as a lens into so many important events: from the rise of Nazi power to the atrocities of the Holocaust and then Soviet occupation afterwards....

This tour through Amnesty International is a non-profit tour. Our guide, Joanna, was very versed on what happened here, gave us a thorough walk to the camp from the train, the same walk the prisoners walked, and then through the camp. An unforgettable day and one not to be missed.

This was an amazing experience to the very first SS concentration camp - the prototype. Joanna, our guide from Mosaic was great, having just finished her master's degree in Nazi Studies, with very helpful information and a wonderful willingness to answer all questions. Highly recommended!

An excellent trip with a very knowledgeable guide. The trip cost 15 Euro (plus an ABC-card) and is worth every cent and more. The guide talked us through the different part in history and managed to make the old camp come alive with all the terrible things that happened. I can highly recommend this trip it to every one that's... More

Brian was an excellent guide and able to portray many facets of this terrible time with sensitivity to all. We had no idea this camp was in operation for so long so it was a very worthwhile tour. Best to go prepared as per the tour info - lunch and an ABC train ticket, makes life easier, but Brian sure... More

I attempted this tour with another, bigger company first, and didn't know about mosaic then. The tour with the other company was full (40 people and one guide), and then I went on the mosaic tour another day. I was glad I ended up with mosaic! The tour was amazing, and our guide Brian was very knowledgeable and handled sensitive... More

This concentration camp site lies just outside Berlin and you will be escorted to the camp and toured around the site of the camp. It costs 15€ plus you need to buy a train ticket beforehand and pay 1.80€ entrance fee. It is well worth the money. I advise you to bring lunch and a few drinks. Also remember hat,... More

I would highly recommend joining a tour group to Sachsenhausen vs. attempting this day trip on your own! This non-profit group meets at the base of the TV tower in Alexanderplatz, Berlin. You cant miss the group. This is a popular meeting place for many tours and they all have flags up with the tour name on it. All profits... More

Phillipa our tour guide was amazing! The tour was extremely informative and thoughtful and there were plenty of opportunities to ask questions. We were lucky enough to have a small group of just 8 of us which was great. Being a social historian Phillipa really gave us an insight into what it would have been like for the people imprisoned...

Don't even consider another tour option. Mosaic is non-profit, has much smaller groups and knowledgable, sensitive amazing guides (we had Philippa, masters in social history). They believe that a site such as this should not be profited from, and I agree, so that's one reason I chose Mosaic. Note: rain or shine, bring an umbrella. Lots of walking. You meet... More
