So painful, but so important, so that none of us ever forget, in case humankind ever try to repeat this. The sad thing is that modern man still hurts each other. We need to remember those killed and every person who suffered such injustice.

If you are ever in the area or are on Danube River cruise, and an excursion to Mauthausen is offered, take it. A visit to this camp is almost a must. I’ve seen the documentaries and photos of the concentration camps. Actually visiting one is something I’ll never forget. Mauthausen is not as well known as Dachau or Auschwitz in... More

We took the bus from Linz and walked up the hill thru a residential area to reach Mauthausen. A very well preserved concentration camp and does a great job at telling the story of the atrocities that happened there. The audio tour is a must. We got there in the late morning planning only to spend half a day, but... More

No way to describe the feelings that ensue when approaching this refugee camp. Each stone shouts the atrocities that occurred there and sadness overwhelms you when entering the gas chambers and see the photographs that chronicle the suffering experienced by prisoners there. Everyone should see it at least once in life!

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.
