My friend and I joined Mosaic's guide, Bryan, to this somber place, and did not regret one minute of it. Bryan was enormously helpful at every point, from assisting us with the most mundane necessities -- getting on the train to Oranienburg, provisioning ourselves with food and water -- to guiding and encouraging our own thought processes as we endeavored...

I had thought to go to Sachsenhausen without a guide but, at the last minute, decided I would join a tour, choosing Mosaic because it was a non-profit. It was a terrific choice. Our guide, Philippa, was very knowledgeable and helpful and I feel that she added so much more to the experience than what one could get from an... More

Phillipa took us on this difficult tour and did so with honesty and respect. She simply gave you human facts of what happened without embellishmenft unlike other tour guides we saw along the way. Our group was small compared to the others and this made the experience all the more personal. Phillipa had a vast knowledge on the camp and... More

It's hard to write a review of such a grim haunting place, however I will as this site helped us decide if we should get a guide or not while visiting. The answer for us was YES. This place is horrendous , a heart wrenching horrid place and not something I think you should just turn up to grab an... More

Actually you don't need a guide for such thing. Just wake up and go there by train early as possible. It is rather simple to get there by public transport, than its 20 minute walk or 6 euro by taxi. The entrance is for free and than you only pay something like 3 euro for audioguide. the audio guide has... More

We took this tour on a very cold day in January. We were attracted to Mosaic as it is not-for-profit with donations to good and relevant causes. Our guide, Phillipa, was helpful and informative, bringing out the stories of each part of the site that we visited. The cold emphasised how bad it must have been for those who had... More

The camp is located about 30 mins out on the train. We did this as a walking tour with Berlin Original English Tours and I would highly recommend it as it only costs about €11 and our guide took us to the camp from the city, explained everything to us in the camp in great detail and made sure we...

Highly recommended! Guided tours to the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp! It’s powerful, not to be missed!. no reservations required, just show up. .. run on 100% non-profit basis. All profits go to the Memorial & Amnesty International.

There were 4 of us in our group during the tour of the camp. The guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the camp and general German history as a whole. Great guide, highly recommended and would use Mosaic again without hesitation.
