My daughters and I saw this camp on a tour with Dennis on Wednesday, July 30, 2014. He was so knowledgeable and helpful, especially when we had to change trains (due to construction). He took his time and let us look through the camp in the eyes of a camp survivor, which made all of the tour so personal and,... More

While traveling with my 18 year old daughter, we decided to visit Sachsenhausen instead of Dachau, as I had already visited Dachau. Historians have preserved many details and stories about the victims of this concentration camp. We spent six hours here and feel that we could have spent many more. The audio guide (3 Euros) is phenomenal in its depth... More

A tough one to review - so pleased we made the trip but can't I enjoyed it with my usual gusto. The trip starts with a train journey from the city centre of Berlin to the rather sleepy town of Oranienburg, which hid a horrific secret during the war. From the station we walked or rather marched the route the... More

We visited Sachsenhausen concentration camp during our stay in Berlin and found it very interesting. It was easy to get there with the S-Bahn and then the bus from the train station to the concentration camp. The audio guides were well worth three euros, providing us with a lot of information as we walked around the camp area. It was... More

Booked through viator online. Guide for the day Rick was very informative he was excellent. Threw questions & thoughts back at us. How is it possible that we as a civilised race can sink to such deprivation and human suffering so quickly without remorse ? I understand now how this is possible Its not a tour most would wAnt to...

Not really a 'fun' way to spend a day, but a day well-spent. The trip is about a 45 minute ride by train, plus a fair amount of walking just to get to the camp. Along the way, you find yourself on the Death March that so many prisoners also took. Very sobering. The camp itself is extremely well-preserved. You... More

its a long way out of Berlin, its the place where all the other camps were run from and soldiers trained etc. You will need to check when the English tours are (15 euros) or just get the cheaper audio guide (5 euros). My tour was 30minutes late starting and whilst it was informative wasnt as good as the one... More

We toured the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp with a Sandemans tour. Initially we were planning on finding it on our own and doing the audio tour but it is 12 euros well spent to go on the tour (book your ticket in advance, people who didn't were turned away). Finding it seems a little complicated, so having someone help us get... More
