We have spent around one hour due to the weather and to the fact we were on the way back home.It was an emotional visit and although we didn't have a guide, it was impossible not to understand or imagine what happened there, years ago. I think you should visit this place and spend more time than i did...maybe 2-3... More

Plan to spend at least 3 hours here. It's worth every minute. Having been to other memorials of this nature, this one is the best and tells a complete story of WW II camps, it's creators, inhabitants and the depravity wrought by a very sick world view. The Austrian government is to be commended for bringing this exhibit to life.... More

This was an emotional visit. Excellent may not be the best description, but it is an excellent historical memorial. When you go, put out the few Euros for the audio guide. We tried to go without it, but went back and rented it. It is essential to get the full impact of the memorial.

We did an afternoon trip to Mauthausen as part of a river cruise and it was a very powerful place that made you fully aware of the travesties that happened during WWII. The tour guides spent a fair amount of talking about how it was a very emotional experience, but the memorial did a very nice job of presenting the... More

Visit Mauthausen isn't that easy, especially if you do it with one of the brave men who survived to this concentration camp. His descriptions of everyday life in the camp make you feel like I never felt before, guilty to be a human being. It's a tough experience but I definitely recommend a visit there to understand what happened and... More

On days in the future when I think things are bad, I will reflect on the visit to this memorial and remember the inhumanity that was directed at so many and the barbaric torment inflicted on other humans. It was the saddest day and likely the most important visit of my life. Every parent should go to this memorial and... More

Of course this memorial was extremely sad but I thought it was presented very nicely. They do a great job of telling the stories. It was free to get in but I highly recommend the audio tour for only €3 each. Saves a lot of reading time in the museum. Taxi from Linz train station to the memorial was €50... More

Very well presented information - very touching stories :(. We needed about 4 hours to see everything. It was extremely cold in December.
