We travelled to the Sachenhausen Camp with Sandemans tours which was 15 euros and lasted 5 hours (including traveling time), Our tour guide Amy was brilliant, I would definitely recommend visiting the camp with a tour guide as I feel if you just walked about on your on you wouldn't get the real feel and information of what happened inside...

We pre-booked this tour with Insider tours, but there would not have been a problem turning up on the day. Our guide Torben was sensitive to the subject matter and great with looking after a small but varied group. He seemed to have a bottomless knowledge of his subject, and it was particularly interesting to learn about the politics behind... More

If you have half a day or more, this place is very much worth a visit. The insight into the camp is very well put together, in a way that isn't offensive to anyone. You can tell it is a memorial, and that is what you want from a place life this. If you are coming in from Berlin, the... More

A concentration camp not an extermination camp like Auschwitz .Still bleak and depressing. The hospital wards with the experimentation are revolting. The transfer of 2000 Jews from Berlin to the camp after Kristallnacht appalling. The tragedy of the Soviet use of the camp post war - on a lesser but still repressive scale - disappointing.. Worth a visit not for... More

An amazing journey of what life was like for these prisoners of war. We got to experience all the main elements of the camp eg- Accommodation barrack, gas chamber etc. We really felt transported back in time. Cesar, our tour guide from Insider Tours, was thoroughly knowledgeable and made the experience real. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting... More

Arrived early couldn't get a tour guide, as they don#t get out of bed before 9am on Sunday;s, still we did for a very little fee get use of a hand held device that gave us a lot of information, it gave us information in regards 16k Russians slaughtered etc, but it never mentioned the 105k Jews massacred and that's...

We visited here with Mosaic tours. They are a not for profit organisation. Our tour guide was Brian and he was excellent at his job and very personable and knowledgable. We took the train down to the camp. There was a group of 17 of us, all different nationalities, on a freezing cold day with snow falling heavily. It was... More

It was my first time visiting a concentration camp. I guess there are better ones around Europe, there is not much left there, but enough to get an idea of what it was and to understand better this terrifying part of the recent history.

We visited sachsenhaussen through an organised tour with an excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. It is a 30 minute train journey from the city and once you arrive a short 20 minute walk. I would thoroughly recommend walking as it is through this you slowly contemplate the history and relevance of the route. The camp itself I cannot describe, it's... More
