For anyone using a hire care with inbuilt GPS, make sure you search for this camp before setting out.

We missed our planned tour but took the 12.00 English... More

I took a Sandeman's Tour to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp with Rob Shaw and it was one of the best experiences of my entire life. Rob made the experience different by sharing his viewpoints and thoughts. Additionally you could ask him any question under the sun and he would know the answer. He makes you think not only about the past... More

A huge memorial in the middle, a look out tower with information, the gas chamber area...many places among the campus to learn about the hurt, pain, isolation that had... More

Went here with our Guide Michael from Insider Tours,and found the whole visit thought provoking. Any questions we asked were given full answers,and I now understand why the Ordinary German could do nothing to prevent this abomination. The tour was conducted at a pace which might have been too fast for someone slow on their feet. I am a young... More
