This was a convenient concentration camp to visit as it was about 40 mins from the Berin city centre. Was in Berlin for the day and definitely wanted to see a concentration camp.

Went on an insider tours trip with Finn as our guide. Finn was excellent, he spent some time getting to know us at the meeting point and did an excellent job on the journey to the site giving information about Berlin and spending some time talking about the modern context of what we were about to see. The site is... More

My visit to Sachsenhausen is a tour that will stay with me for a long while. It’s a very thought provoking tour and parts of it reduced me to tears. It’s a real eye-opener and although some of the things I saw was very upsetting, I am very glad I went. A definite “must do” if you are in Berlin.... More

It was easy to get in contact with the booking company. Our guide Thomas was quick to reply and help our group beforehand, and he was also an excellent guide during the visit, displaying both enthusiasm and knowledge. This is something that should be on everybody's list when visiting Berlin, especially with a guided tour. Thank you from Sweden!

Sachsenhausen is very easy to get to from Berlin, about 40 minutes on the train takes you to Oranienburg, and buses to the camp run from outside the station. Better still, walk there, it's well signposted, and only takes 20 minutes. Entrance to site is free, and a personal audio-guide only costs 3 euros (plus some form of ID left... More

I did a tour with Original Berlin Walks and was not disappointed with my tour guide "Dennis". He was very knowledgeable and used the story of one of the prison "leaders" to really take us on a journey through the concentration camp and it's history. He was easily the best tour guide I had while in Berlin.

Whilst staying for a few days in Berlin, we visited this camp which is 35 km north of the city. It takes about 1-2 hrs to get there by S and U train and either a bus 804( only go 1 an hour) or 20 min walk to the camp. A very informative visit, either with a guide or audio... More

Roy, our English speaking guide was a student of history. He made our group think about the political philosophy of the times throughout the entire tour. This was a place where all the members of my group needed to visit to make sure we understood what really happened here and other similar places.

If you are visiting Germany, don't forget to see this side of the history. I got chocked about so many information that we don't know about the war are in this camp.

A history what Germany wants to remember to forget. Spine chilling experience with the narration of Sandemans new berlin tour guide - George (from the USA). Very informative and impactful narration. Thanks George A visit to this place might change the very perspective we have about human lives
