My visit to Mauthausen was my first time visiting a Nazi concentration camp. Just driving up to the gates I had an uneasy feeling, especially when I then walked up to the main gate on a grey and rainy day. No punches are pulled to show you the horrors of the camp. The stories and images on display are almost... More

On our way back from Cesky Krumlow to Budapest, we have seen the Mauthausen sign on the road and we decided that we make an unplanned stop to see the Nazi Camp. We were after a four day visit with the kids and I was not sure how they will react. After touring the camp and visiting the exhibition I... More

I cannot say it is a nice place but it is a place all the people should go and learn from the past. The museum is for free even park place. It can take 3 to 4 hours if you really want to see all of them. Unfortunately I only have 2 hours to visit it. But for sure I... More

Visiting this site on a cold cloudy windy day with few people around likely added even more gravity to the somber mood that is inevitable when experiencing this type of memorial. The map and signs around the camp are helpful in getting some idea of what happened where. The museum is very rich with material and is extremely depressing as... More

we went here after visiting dachau and this one was more emotional i think due to the less visitors perhaps.

Chilling memorials to the prisoners who perished there. Walking the floors they walked, seeing the hardships they endured, is very emotional. It should never be allowed to be forgotten.

If you are still able to get a private guide for a small group I would recommend. This was not an easy or pleasant experience but one that meant a great deal to my family of three. We had an amazing guide who had a passion to share this camps story and horrible history. It made a lasting impression on... More

This was our main reason for visiting the area as part of our travels through Europe. We wanted to see how it compared to Auschwitz and Dachau. We were glad we went as it rounded our appreciation of the damage wielded by the Nazi's. It was another type of camp, just as well presented as the others. However, there was... More

This is an extraordinary place for so many reasons, however, I was profoundly distressed by the amount of antisemitic graffiti on the walls. I reached out to the staff on this and they essentially said there is nothing that they can do and brushed my complaint under the rug. Further evidence how antisemitism is on the rise in Europe and... More
