We met up with our tour guide Dennis, outside a train station in Berlin.. We then travelled on a train and a bus to the camp.... More

My first visit to a concentration camp and must say it was a very moving experience. We went on an overcast day and started to snow and that just added to the feel of how the prisoners must of felt. Very informative and a lot of information to take in. We used the audio guide you can hire out for... More

We chose to rent a car to get to this "prototype" prisoners/concentration camp. (About an hour from Berlin, inclusive of getting lost). Would you believe that there is a elementary school which is backs up to the camp...and when we asked for directions, nobody knew what we were talking about. What began as a sunny, warm day, quickly turned overcast.... More

My sister and I visited Sacshenhausen in January 2015 as part of a tour to the camp. I could not have prepared for the emotional experience I faced. This camp is a very profound reminder of the atrocities that occurred to many people of different backgrounds during the war, and for that reason I believe my trip to Sachenhausen was... More

The first concentration camp I've visited. In many ways going there was very different to what I expected. I presumed the visit to the site would be predominantly educational and just required due respect for the people who suffered there. However, the site affected me in a much more profound way and left me with quite a heavy feeling and... More

Great guide Rob Shaw took us on a guided tour of this camp which was moving and thought provoking. The rain and freezing wind only added to the experience as we all commented on how appalling it would have been for the inmates being only dressed in thin pyjamas. Rob challenged our view of our own countries, which at times... More

You just have to go see this place. You dont realise how powering these places are until you go. It snowed whilst I visited which added to the experience. Train station is on the S1 line and it costs 6-8euro in a taxi from the station. We opted for an audio guide but I think just walking around in your... More

A special thank you to Rob.S from New Berlin Tours who gave us an in depth understanding of history and situated the place in its right context. Rob.S , one could see was not just doing a run of the mill "tour guide" job but was really engaged.
