Unlike Auschwitz this memorial doesn't get overcrowded. Excellent facilities with friendly and knowledgeable staff. I believe it's closed on a Monday. If you are visiting using public transport I suggest NOT going on a weekend as the buses are far less frequent. I went on a Saturday and there was a THREE hour wait for a bus back to Linz.... More

It is a must if you visit or live in Austria. Instructive not to repeat history. However, because of the bad weather, only a part of the memorial was available for visits. Be ready to spend there at least 2 full hours, it is good not to rush among the rooms to have a feeling of the conditions of the... More

We visited here on a Sunday on our way home after a weekend away and were blown away by how quiet it was. This is the second concentration camp we have now visited, the first being Dachau. Even if you are not a history buff you must make an effort to visit one of these. Whilst the atrocities of war... More

This memorial is the site of what was the German concentration camp, Mauthausen-Gusen, during World War II. Even with navigation, we found it a bit difficult to find because of the site's location some distance from the main road and less than stellar signage. Once we arrived, though, I was incredibly impressed with how the site is maintained. Parking is... More

This is so interesting and scary at the same time. With all racism and nazism that is spreading again in Europe I think that visits to different camp from the 2nd World War should be introduced in all schools. This is the human actions when they are at their worst, everyone should see this.

The memorial is in a suburban area, a beautiful setting. As you drive up, it's hard to believe what that place has seen. It saddens you, yet teaches to value life and our freedom a little more. Unlike some other similar sites, Mauthausen still preserves a lot of the original rooms as they were. The buildings have NOT been rebuilt... More

It is really worthwile visiting the Mauthausen Memorial. To see what our ancestors gave up so that we can have the life that we have now. Great museum, lots to do and see, very impressive!

This memorial is in such a beautiful setting it really belies the horrors that went on and were witnessed. It is a lesser known site of concentration camp but serves as a reminder of what went on. It was an ancillary camp to Ravensbrucke.There are small group tours at 11.30 and 1pm and takes about an hour although you can... More

everybody in this world should visit such a place...you can learn a lot of important things. I was there at school and this year with an Italian and Hungarian friend who were impressed, too.

Ever since I could read, I have been fascinated by history. The one period which particularly interests me is the Second World War. It's said that war brings out the best and worst in us. I beg to differ. War is the most important piece of evidence which suggests that humans cannot evolve without conflict. Anyone (and especially the politicians)... More
