More than 100,000 Jews, communists, intellectuals, gypsies and homosexuals were killed by Nazis between 1936 and 1945 in this concentration camp. Some of the buildings have been preserved in their original form including barracks, and a pathology department where Nazis performed medical experiments on the inmates.

Amazing experience for anyone who wants to be educated on what it is to be european. "Sam Noble" our tour guide, was excellent and gave us so much more than a tour around the camp. He challenges you to think for yourself and can answer any Q's you have very well. This tour completely changed any prejudices I had for... More

Amazingly difficult to get to, only one bus every hour to and from the station, this is an experience that is impossible to describe in words. Reverence, compassion, awe, are just a few of the emotions that touch the visitor as he/she stands on soil that witnessed the horrific treatment of tens of thousands of innocent, decent people persecuted for...

If you have the time, you should try to visit Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. It takes about 45 minutes from the Hauptbahnhof station in Berlin to get there, depending on the current construction work on the railway line. You will need at least 3-4 hours to spend at the Camp and will do a lot of walking. Although entry is free,... More

This tour was made all the more special by our tour guide "Sam Noble". Besides telling us all that happened at this concentration camp he went into great detail to describe the psychological way that was used to break the prisoners. All of us on the tour were amazed at the size of the camp, especially as it is situated... More

If you have a day to spare and if you are interested in history, this place is highly recommended. This place has such a grim history to it. The entry is free but if you want an audio guide, you have to pay around 3 euros. Note that there will be a lot of walking to do. So, wear good... More

S1 train line was under construction so i took the RE5 train instead. The travel time from Berlin to Oranienburg station is around one hour, plus 15-20 minutes walk from the station to the camp. Visiting the area is free but the audio guide is only 3 euros including a map, so I recommend that if you are not visiting... More

I did this day trip through Get Your Guide and had a fantastic tour guide, Amy, she really made the trip worth while. You go on the train out to the town and walk about 15 mins to the camp. Spend about 4 hours there then travel back. You must take food and drink with you as you don't stop... More

Our tour guide Nikolai was very knowledgeable and thorough. He was also very good at getting us to and from the camp, ensuring we were on the correct train etc. He kept it serious and professional as it should have been. Highly recommended.

We took our daughter, age 16 for her post GCSE trip. She's heavily into history and requested a visit here. We went by ourselves in the searing heat and took the train from Berlin and walked from the station in Oranienburg. Very easy to find. Our visit took around 4 hours in the camp and can only describe it as... More

We were a group of four friends, and we took the Sandeman's tour with our wonderfoul tour guide Abril. She really knows what she's talking about, although I'm also under the impression that in Germany they take rather seriously how tour guides speak and explain about the monuments. Well, first, referring only to the concentration camp, all I gotta say... More
