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...

I have nothing to compare this visit to as I have never been to any other concentration camps but feel as though I could try and imagine how horrible life was for the thousands of Hitler's victims by walking through this camp and museum. We MUST remember!

My visit here was moving and sobering. There are many exhibits with much to learn. I would definitely recommend. However, take caution if you are staying in Port of Hamburg. It is in the countryside a little ways out, so make sure you know where you're going. I almost got lost on my bus...

Got the impression there wouldn't be much to see at this site, but I was very wrong. The approach was pleasant and probably belies the fact theres a camp there. Watch out for the immense farmhouses on the way to the camp. The entrance is quite far down the main road, but once there its worth speaking with the volunteer... More

It was about a 40 minute detour from Hamburg on our way to Berlin but we drove there. Much of it has been destroyed but enough has been maintained and documented along with some moving memorials that it is worth a visit. It is the largest camp in Northern Germany. It is also in a beautiful area in Germany in... More

Neuengammen is worth a visit. If you have the slightest interest in WW2 this place can make you walk around for hours. Although much of this place was demolished after the war, they have managed to create a remarkable memory of the awful part of our history that took place at that time. The staff is very helpful and enjoy... More

If you have been in other Camps, this is not very special. If you have never been in one and o you are in Hamburg, you can try a visit. There is one exposition, some rests of buildings and a memorial. One can combine a visit to the Bergedorf Castle as well.

The camp is located outside of Hamburg, some 15 min by car. It's an open area with some building from the war and some remaining foundations of the barracks. The buildings are open from 09:30 - 16:00 hr. The exhibition in the buildings explains what went on here in those days. also a lot of testimonials can be looked into.... More
