About
This shore excursion combines our classic All-in-One Best of Berlin trip with a brief visit to the largest concentration camp near Berlin: Sachsenhausen.  We will pick you up directly at your cruise ship docking in Warnemünde or Rostock, and bring you to Berlin to see the city's essential sites. You will then be driven to Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp for an overview of the memorial site. Please be aware, Sachsenhausen is roughly a one hour drive from Berlin. The tour is organized to minimize time spent on the bus. This is why we visit Sachsenhausen in the afternoon, as it lies on the way back to port. More time, however, is spent on the bus than on our regular Berlin shore excursion. All of our shore excursions are adjusted to each ship’s docking times and each starts promptly after your vessel’s arrival, returning with plenty of time to spare before its departure. We have been organizing shore excursions for nearly a decade and have never missed a cruise ship’s departure.

Great tour - Guide was terrific
Oct 2019
This was a very long day however very worth the travelling. I wish i had brushed up on my history a little more before going. The tour company was right outside of the port when we disembarked, very comfortable tour bus with wifi and then journey to Sachenhausen. The guide was very informative and presented a very difficult time in history with insight and detail and respect for the people. For our Berlin portion of the tour it was a holiday in Berlin and we were still able to see the sights and have some time for lunch and all the sights. Thoroughly enjoyed the long day and would highly recommend!
