Not a huge museum so it is not overpowering -but there is a lot to see and learn about. I certainly advise giving yourself 1 to 2 hours to go around all the exhibits. After thinking about the visit I wish I had taken more time. To get the most out of all the exhibits I would definitely take advantage... More

An interesting, if not draining visit. Take the time to go round properly, there is a lot of information to take in. Some areas are not open on certain days of the week, and whilst we visited at such a time, we still spent a good few hours getting round this extraordinary place. I do regret not being able to...

It's wonderful that this place is such an attraction to educate people on all of that went on. With the free entry and the €3 audio fee, it's worth while and educational. However, I felt that it was too modern and should have been left as it was. It's an overload of information and too much reading - when I... More

I visited Sachsenhausen Concentration camp with two German friends. One of them told us that as a child he lived in a village nearby. Every morning he went, with other pupils, by bus to school, accompanied by a soldier, who told them not to tell at home anything regarding what they will see on their way to school. He was... More

The atmosphere of Sachsenhausen is like nothing I have ever experienced, and yet the sight is something I will never forget. Although I knew little about the war when visiting, the site is terrible and fascinating all at once. You can walk around the blocks at your own leisure and study the displays around the museum (or disregard them if... More

We were so pleased with our visit to Berlin but on the day we left it was raining and nothing came to mind but to visit the former KonzentrazionsLager Sachsenhausen. Awful place - we went there and got so miserable because of the things that happened there nearly 80 years ago for more than a decade. Yes even during Russian... More

Visiting Sachsenhausen by yourself is a powerful and moving experience. It is located 33km north of central Berlin and takes over an hour to get here by train (S1 S-bahn to Oranienburg). From Oranienburg station it is a further 15 minute walk. Entry is free and the site is open until 6pm. The camp is a huge desolate place if... More

Despite difficulties experienced on the journey from the meeting point to the camp due to overcrowding on the regional train and extremely high temperatures during the day my wife and I found the trip completely fulfilling. This was, to no small measure, due to the way our guide (Kevin) escorted the tour and provided enlightening information as to the history... More

Haunting and scary. I was here on my own in the cold. The place was deserted. My feelings of uncomfortable were nothing compared to what the poor souls who were imprisoned here in little more than cloth pyjamas must have experienced. It is a horror on a grand scale. The museum is informative and modern. Well laid out. The camp... More
