About 30 (car) minutes from the centre of Berlin, the well maintained, remains of Sachsenhausen concentration camp. We used the audio tour after seeing the big groups awaiting the tourstart. Too much and to impressive to see and hear, after 2 hours we had seen enough. A never to be forgotten part of history, must see.

Extremely interesting visit, especially with the help of the new sandemans walking tour (with Sam being a really brilliant tour guide for the day). We hadn't initially planned to visit a concentration camp but we are both so glad that we did.

It is a good way to know the Nazi history, as... More

This is a very good site to grasp some of the scale of the concentration camps active during the nazi regime. It is accessible by public transit and there is also free parking if you drive. The site is very large, so you will need at least a couple of hours to take enough of it in. It is free,... More

Visited the memorial with the Original Berlin Walking Tours (through Viator). The tour was well planned. We met the guide at the Metro station and getting at the site was rather easy. Our tour guide was Carlos. He was excellent. He managed to make the experience a memorable one with his down-to-earth explanation. Moreover his English was very good (unlike... More

My husband and I highly recommend using Original Berlin Walks for tours when visiting the city. We had the honor of touring Sachsenhausen with Finn Ballard. His knowledge, stories and sensitivity to the Memorial was exceptional. Poor guy had the misfortune of a train delay during our tour which made for a longer than expected day. He handled the delay...

Rob S was our tour guide for a fascinating yet somber visit to this concentration camp. Rob was very knowledgable and willing to answer questions. He also promised to send us a book list with books with information pertaining to what we saw as we toured this camp. Highly recommended to go see this camp.

A part of dark history - it's heart wrenching but it did happen! Seeing it with a walking tour especially the Berlin Original Walking Tours gives you a detailed and I depth insight to happened here.

He is a Kiwi who has lived in Berlin for 8 years and has a great interest and knowledge of history. This tour is good value for... More

While the idea of visiting a Concentration Camp sounds more like a required school trip than a vacation, I'm so glad we took the time to visit Sachsenhausen. We had a guide and I think it's really important to get a guide as they have all the history. Just the images inside reminded me of movies and newsreels I'd seen... More
