This was for me yet another tour with Insider which was absolutely outstanding. Altogether we were a group of nearly thirty from all over the world, handled expertly and with much charm and patience by Nigel Dunkley. From our collection point we were conducted via the main Berlin railway station out to the city of Oranienburg where the camp is... More

A very intense experience... it is heartbreaking to see and hear what the prisoners here went through. It is easy to get to by getting a bus/train/tram pass for zones 1 - 6, and takes about a hour from the center by public transport. The site is free to enter and wander around... maps are 50cents, or for 3 euros... More

We visited the camp with Original Berlin Walks and it was a great tour. Jonny did a great job of looking after our group and providing good information along the way. The tour is 6 hours (including transport) and you could spend even more time than that. There is a lot to take in and the museums within the camp... More

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.

Our guide is a Ph.D. student Leonardo at Free University of Berlin majoring in history, he has some insights of the history since you can tell that he has got tremendous amount of knowledge storage with facts as well as his own perspectives, his interpretation is attention informative intensive. 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...
