Husband and I were taking a Danube river cruise and a tour of Mauthausen was an excursion option. While this certainly cannot be termed as a "fun" outing, I think it was an important one considering the effects of horrific acts during WWII are still strongly felt throughout Eastern Europe. Our guide (so mad that I can't remember his name!)... More

Being interested in viewing such historical cites like that, it is a must, since this is the only one as such in Austria.. For anybody who has not experienced that kind of place, it will be an experience. Prepare yourself for a very emotional visit.

of History! I would recommend picking a nice day when visiting the KZ Mauthausen since a lot of things to see are outside... They show you a video and then you are off to walk around the well preserved grounds...you will be able to enter the Barracks ....see the stairs of death and many other points of interest with displayed...

This is very tastefully done. My two young children were able to learn a lot during our walk through the memorial. There are some touching monuments and sculptures to ensure that we never forget some if mankinds darkest moments. I strongly urge everyone to visit this monument and pay your respects so we can remember the horrific nature of these... More

This was my first visit to a concentration camp and was expecting a larger exhibit, along the lines of what you'd find when you visit Auschwitz however the memorial at Mauthausen is much more reserved. Most items were taken from the camp and therefore it is only the exhibit near the end of the camp that really gives you insight... More

I can say the camp is well preserved with limited exhibits to present what happened there. There are lists of names of many of the prisoners and a room detailing all the ways to die there. There is a room with ovens and one for gassing. All this said there did not seem to be a real attempt to convey... More

Possibly the most memorable place I visited during my week-long stay in Austria (Salzburg / Linz / Hallstatt and Vienna). I've seen a lot of people complaining about the walk from Mauthausen train station to the camp (yes it is a little bit uphill...) but it's a nice 30-40 minute walk through a picturesque area with some interesting houses. Mauthausen... More
