This place is a real eye opener. It is a must do if you are in or around berlin. We went here with a sandemans tour with Rob Shaw as our guide, i'd highly recommend doing this as you get such a detailed account of the camp. (The tour can be found in berlin). I only spent 4 days in... More

Went on a guided tour with Phillipa during a 3 day short break to Berlin. Trip was very well organised, we were accompanied on the train by our guide.(Would never have found it alone!) Her knowledge helped to make this a most memorable but harrowing experience. I would highly recommend. On a practical note take food and plenty of water-facilities... More

I didn't join any guided tour and was still able to find the place myself and also thought I learnt a lot. I got the audio guide but personally I think the audio guide was actually distracting...There's so much to see on the displays already. It is very informative and the exhibitions are wonderful. The good thing about visiting the... More

This place is overwhelming. I went there twice. Both times I was completely overwhelmed by how close such an awful chapter of German (my grandfathers') history is.

During our recent trip to Berlin we visted the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp with Sandemans New Berlin tours. Our guide was Rob Shaw and we could not have done with without him. This is a real must for everyone who visits Berlin and a must to do once in your life time. Ron was amazing, he explained all the history surrounding... More

We drove to Sachsenhausen from Berlin, from the train station where we parked for free we walked several miles to the entrance of this camp. our guide gave a fantastic tour, for me it was so enlightening where I had thought it might be simply frightening. This was a fantastic tour I learned so much and I really was impressed... More

This is an important tour for people to experience. Our guide, Rob Shaw, was an excellent navigator through the events that led to this horrific chapter in world history. He was extremely well versed and able to engage our group through, not just his base historical knowledge, but also with his ability to demonstrate cultural relevance to us by illuminating... More

As my title says this visit was intense. Everyone could feel the heaviness in the air, I couldn't help to cry by the time tour was almost done. For me (a history love) this visit was well worth it, I recommend everyone to visit the concentration camp, because this is something that happen not so long ago and we all... More

We toured the camp and were witness to the atrocities committed. I believe it is important to preserve this very sad part of German history to prevent it from happening ever again. Although difficult to comprehend, well worth the trip.
