Must see! Can't understand the scale of this place without standing in it. We've all learned of the evil acts the Nazis committed. Being in this camp allows you to grasp how large and organized the Nazis were their efforts.

I wasn't sure that Sandemans provided this guided tour on Christmas day, but not only the guides were there, also the visitors were more than expected, but the extraordinary guide Stephanie allowed us to follow her even if there were too many of us. The tour is perfectly timed, with transport, s-bahn, bus and everything, even the toilet/food pauses are... More

We visited with Insider Tours, which I would recommend. It was a very solemn visit, but I learned a lot of things I wasn't aware of. It's odd to see how life just seemed to go on in the town around what's left of the camp (and now memorial). I found it eerily as odd in Terezin just outside Prague.

It was a cold and gloomy day in berlin when we decided to go visit this monument from the nazi regime era. I booked a tour with Sandemanns company and tour was for around 5 hours including travelling time. Tour guide was knowledgable and his delivery was very appropriate. It really sends shivers down your spine when you hear some... More

This is a very good tour with an excellent tour guide. The trip from Berlin was easy by train and bus with a very knowledgeable guide. It must be difficult to conduct tours like this that are sensitive and emotional, but Rob did a very nice job. It makes one think deeply about life and death and human nature to... More

We got the train from Berlin Friedrichstrabe which was easy (once you managed to buy a ticket and remember to stamp it!) The walk from the station to the camp took about 15/20 min and there were memorials and info boards to read on your way. The camp itself you can walk round at your own pace either with an... More

The tour may take around 6 hours to finish. If you walk by yourself (it is free btw, or €3 for an audio guide), it may take a good 3 hours to finish. The area is really huge with a lot of things to read, see and listen to. Most of the exhibits have English descriptions. The place itself is... More

It was very interesting and thought provoking to learn about the camp and see evidence of how prisoners lived. I particularly liked the tributes to the individual lives of prisoners. One could easily spend two or three days there reading all the information and looking around the grounds.

A deeply tragic place. The very informative museum and well maintained grounds. Full of respect and pulled no punches about what happened. Went on a cold bleak grey day which added to the atmosphere.
