More than 100,000 Jews, communists, intellectuals, gypsies and homosexuals were killed by Nazis between 1936 and 1945 in this concentration camp. Some of the buildings have been preserved in their original form including barracks, and a pathology department where Nazis performed medical experiments on the inmates.

The tour to Sachenhausen was very moving and informative. Although it was Franceska's first time presenting the tour, she did so with finesse and a real ability to convey the atrocities that took place there in such a way as they came to life. I found it difficult to hear all of these facts while standing in the very place... More

A bit of an expedition to reach it but easily done. There is not much of the original camp left, a few huts, but the outline of everything is there so you can get a feel for what it might have been like. The prisoners huts are left like they would have been so you can get an impression of... More

I find it difficult to put a rating on this experience; for me, like many, it is about the ground you walk on here and the memories contained which need to be remembered. This camp has an intact building where the prisoners resided, which not all camps have. It functioned as more of a work camp for most of its... More

I probably could have gone my whole life and not needed to experience this type of museum. I believe it is a smaller concentration camp, and was initially a detention camp before becoming a death camp and place for experiments. Before you enter the actual camp there is a museum with many interesting stories and artifacts on display. I am... More

This was my second visit to Sachsenhausen, and it was just as breath taking as the first time. Wow. This concentration camp is really well kept in touch, you can see some old baracks, the 'ovens' and also some of the test rooms. Tip: Go on a guided tour through the concentration camp. You will learn a lot more!

I did not know what to expect and was surprised how big the camp was. It was deeply upsetting to here what happened here but important for everyone to remember and understand to prevent anything like this ever happening again.

It was my dream to visit a nazi concentration camp. This was actually a nazi camp and then a socialist camp too. The place is full of history, the atmosphere is sad, the reality here is shocking. A must see.

I booked this with Viatour although you can visit the camp for free. We paid 30 euro for 2 adults and 1 child (adults are over 12). You also need a separate Berlin ABC travel pass. Having a knowledgable and experienced guide certainly made the tour much more interesting. To get there yourself take the Regional train to Orianianberg and... More

This is a must see part of our world history which brings home the cruelty and misery humans can inflict on each other. Used by both the Nazis in WW 2 and later the Soviets under Stalin.
