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

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

This is of course a horrible place, but still an important visit. Grounds are well kept, there is no entrance fee (never in any KZ), but there is a small fee for the audioguides. The audioguides are very detailed and it takes well over an hour, almost two, if you want to listen to everything. The information and stories give... More

Must-do. Sobering but important. We missed the guided tour and did a self-guided tour. We'd probably have gotten even more out of it if we did a guided tour

Shocking visit with insight into the daily life of KZ-victims. Not easy to take especially for young people and teens if they start realizing what actually happend was way more cruel than history school books will ever tell you. It is defintitely worth going be it to remember or to learn, be it to preserve or simply to get a... More

I visited this concentration camp with my teen kids. What could be said about a place where more than 100000 people were killed by "people" with everyday torture? Death stairs were the worst. Air is heavy there.

My father was liberated from Mauthausen on the 5th May 1945. I came here with my teenage children and a small film crew to film part of a documentary which follows my father's footsteps from camps in Poland to the place where my father thought he had come to die. The staff were very helpful and showed more empathy than... More

If you are in the area, this is a must visit. It is difficult to come face to face with the crematoria and climb the Stairs of Death, but this place should not be missed.
