We visited Hamburg on a stag do and decided we should visit the memorial and we were very surprised how eerie the site is. Difficult to say it was enjoyable but we all found it very interesting and in my opinion something everyone should see in their life time to understand the atrocities that took place. Easy to reach via... More

Although most of this camp has long been demolished it is nonetheless a poignant place to visit. It is laid out as it was during the war and there are signs pointing out various areas of particular interest. It is worth seeing the film in the exhibition building which gives you a good idea of what went on here. The... More

this is a great trip to make if you are visting hamburg! it is quite far out of the city - we travelled from Reeperbahn train station and the journey (train then bus to the memorial) however transport is cheap and locals helped us get on the correct bus! the actual memorial is free and has lots to see and...

My boyfriend and I went to Neuengamme after a short holiday in Hamburg. The place is quite exciting to see. Especially og you rent an audioguide in the information-building. The museum is also quite interesting but it is good thing to understand german in this area because the information in english is not that good. You should also think about... More

Another place knocked off my bucket list. Always wanted to visit as I have family living in Hamburg and at last managed to go. Very glad I did as its really interesting. Free to enter and quite easy to get to either by car or bus. Exhibits are very well set out and descriptive. Not may people around mid-October so... More

In one sense not one of the "normal" concentration camps, it's just outside Hamburg, it was originally just a German brick works, but owing to the war damage in Germany they could not maintain the demand for new bricks. So it became a concentration camp with slave labour. A lot of people died here and some were murdered by various... More

What can one say when they visit locations like this apart from it make one sad to understand that what happened here was wrong. However, one can never really understand unless they were part of this at the time. Very educational and loads to view here.

We visited here with German friends and were all moved by the memories that were evoked, vicariously. The place is not very well known, but "housed" 106,000 people of whom 56,000 died on the spot. How it was allowed to happen is still a mystery.

We went here as part of an excursion from Queen Mary 2 whilst docked in Hamburg. It was an interesting visit, lots to read & take in. The information displayed made you really think about what happened. There is also a new exhibit on the SS in a different block. A little more time on site would have been good,... More

I have been before to Buchenwald and Auschwitz but somehow this was more moving. Its quiet, very few other tourists, and there is a lot to see. The atmosphere is cold and grim, very unlike the surrounding countryside. Best way to get the local bus from Bergedorf, included in Hamburg card. Most interesting parts to see for me were the...
