The memorial runs a tour starting from Potsdam Platz in central Berlin at 1020am that takes the train and bus/walk to the site (about 1hr). Our guide did not show up due to personal reasons so we took the ride ourselves along with a different group to Sachsenhausen. After we started the audio guided tour (3 Euro), a replacement English... More

On a tour like this the tour guide definitely has to be knowledgeable, able to present information in a clear but sensitive way and well organised! Lorna was all of the above! She did a great job! This is a tour I would highly recommend when visiting Berlin! Maybe not because of the fun factor but because of the powerful... More

Incredible experience. Our guide Finn was in another league as far as tour guides go. He is brilliant and I wish he was our guide on every tour. Very sobering and powerful experience and I recommend that everyone take this tour. Life-changing tour, you can;t go wrong here.

Brilliant tour, sobering and incredibly powerful. Our tour guide, Cesar, was very engaging and knowledgeable. We even drank a beer with him in the train on our way back. Highly recommend this visit to Sachsenhausen Concentration camp.

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!
