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...

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
