    KZ-Gedenkstatte Mauthausen
    Stop: 3 hours - Admission included
    Become acquainted with the history of Mauthausen Memorial during the 2,5-hour ride from Vienna. By the summer of 1940, Mauthausen had become one of the largest labor camp complexes in the German-occupied part of Europe. Some 200,000 people are thought to have been imprisoned at Mauthausen between 1938 and 1945, and about half of them lost their lives. Mauthausen was among the last concentration camps to be liberated by the Allies. Upon arrival at the Memorial grab your audio guide (available in 11 languages) for a self-guided tour through the preserved grounds. See the prisoner’s barracks, Wiener-Graben quarry, the so-called 'Stairs of Death', SS-quarters, camp prison, gas chamber and the highly rated Mauthausen Museum. Heading back to Vienna stop at a local restaurant for lunch (own expense).

I met our guide at Tourist Info Wien (right off the U1 line at Karlsplatz stop). He explained a lot of helpful history to us on the ride over and then had us watch a short documentary of the concentration camp on iPads in the van which was very wise. We got to Mauthausen with a greater and more In-depth understanding of what took place there which made our visit more meaningful. When we arrived we were given audio guides and a map and allowed to wander the camp and it’s museum on our own for a few hours before reconvening. It was pretty desolate aside from a few school groups visiting. Our tour guide was great and even drove us down into the granite quarry so that we could see it up close. We went to lunch at a nice but casual sit down restaurant that served Austrian cuisine. Overall worth the money and I highly recommend this tour.

Terrible place and as related to Jews who escaped, I was really upset, and still am, by the horrors. However, it is really worth going, to see why it was so important we won the war, as the Austrians were as horrific as the Germans and actually tried to escape responsibility for their terribel actions until very recently - even said they were the first "victims" until 2010! Very gald our love guide Flemming, was actually Danish, as we found many Austrians were still not accepting of their responsibilty and actually very unpleasant.
I could have spent more time reading, as a lot of information and much to see there. Well organised with hand-held device to give information at each point, but I think there could have been signs to help direction and information on some of the sites.
I am gald that I went and would really recommend Flemming at Expedia as your guide, but it is horrifying and reading more about it since, makes me really unsettled that any human could do these things to other people and enjoy them- I read the commander gave his gun to his 11 year old son to take pot shots at Jews with.

We were met by our tour guide Fleming in front of tourist information in Central Vienna. Very easy to find and if you need a taxi this will get reimbursed. Comfortable vehicle.
Drive out to camp gave us a chance to experience the beauty of the Vienna countryside. Our guide Fleming was extremely knowledgeable and told the history of Vienna and WW1 and WW2 tying it all together in an understandable way. You then watch a 40 minute documentary on the Camp which gives a visual perspective prior to the camp itself.
On arrival you get a audio guide and move through the camp alone. I preferred this to an accompanying guide as you can spend reflective time in quiet areas. The tour ends in a modern and excellently curated area with very detailed information.
Fleming took us down to the quarry as the Stairs of Death have been closed to the public due to safety reasons.
My 13 year old daughter managed this tour well though there is a part in documentary that is very graphic.

On the way home we stopped for lunch which is not included in the tour.
In my view if you have the time this tour is a must to understand more fully the history of Austria. Thanks Fleming for sharing your knowledge.

I’d like to say this was an managing tour, but that seems weird when you take into account the atrocities that happened here. Whilst I could only imagine the horrors that took place, it puts our lives into perspective & helps to understand what we have gained from those that lost their lives. The tour itself was great & our driver was knowledge. He even dropped us back to our hotel after the trip.
If you are looking for an activity to really get you thinking & feeling, this is for you. See where so many lost their lives for the freedom that we all enjoy.

This trip was great. Tom (our driver/guide) was excellent. He was knowledgeable and very well spoken. Departure was right on time. The ride out to the camp was both enjoyable and educational. The time allotted at the camp is just right and the lunch stop on the way back is perfect (recommend the goulash). What makes the trip so worth while is the driver/guide and Tom was a 10/10. Well worth the $$ and well worth the experience.

I am a huge WWII history buff and I wanted to make a trip to locations around Europe so obviously Mauthausen was on my list.

Our guide, Markus met us at the Tourist Info office near the Vienna Opera House and the Albertina. We had a small group (only 5 total) so we were in a smaller van. It was nice that it was a small group. Easy to manage and ask questions. On the trip to the camp, Markus played a video detailing the history of the camp. He also filled in other information and answered questions along the way.

It took about 90 minutes to arrive from Vienna to Mauthausen. Once there, we received audio guides ( we had to give an ID for them to hold in order to make sure we returned the guides) and we were sent off to explore on our own. I did prefer this for this kind of experience. No bumping into other guides/groups. We could take our time (3hrs) and walk through and see the camp for ourselves.

Once we were done we made our way back to our bus. Markus even drove us around the back of the camp to see the quarry and the “stairs of death.”

We had a quick stop for lunch. It was a great place with plenty of food options. We made our way back to Vienna on time.

Overall it was a very good experience.

I went with a company called Vienna à la Carte. Great company - I cannot say enough good things about them. Our tour day was perfect from beginning to end. Our driver and guide,Tom, was right on time and he was so knowledgeable about the city of Vienna, as well as Austria sharing with us all kinds of great information and stories along the way as we passed such interesting places. His tips to make the best of our time there were so helpful in our self-guided tour of Mauthausen. He was very aware of the sober aspect of this tour and kept things very level and calm. The van we had was brand new, spacious and comfortable. We watched a film on nice size tablets with Bose headphones on the history of Mauthausen right before arriving. We had ample time there to see and read everything. The camp was well preserved and gave you a real feeling on just how terrible this place was and its sad place in Austria's history. Everyone there touring that day was respectful of the sensitivity of the camp. We stopped at a lovely place for a late lunch before heading back to Vienna and again - arrived right on time. Our pick up and drop off point was by the Vienna State Opera and so easy to find. I would highly recommend this tour.

My wife and I enjoyed our trip. Markus was an excellent driver and guide. The museum and site were very sobering and helped to further educate us about some of the most terrible activities carried out by the Third Reich during WWII. Plan to spend plenty of time inside the museum itself- two hours inside and another one to two hours walking the grounds and looking in the other buildings.

This trip was well worth the time and money. We had a great guide who shared very interesting stories both personal and historical about Vienna, the war, and The Mauthausen Concentration Camp. Visiting the camp itself was a very interesting experience. It was hard to digest all of the information about the horrors that occurred there but it is without a doubt worth visiting if you are going to be in Vienna. It’s such a huge part of history and those who endured that horrific place deserve to have there stories heard. We were at the camp for about 2 - 2 1/2 hours and there was no shortage of things to see/learn. I highly recommend this day trip.

Dear sketchtheworld87, thank you so much for this great review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your guide's stories! I couldn't agree with you more - it is such a significant part of history that needs to be remembered and the stories of the victims need to be heard. We would love to welcome you back to Vienna in the future! Marlies & the Vienna à la carte team

This tour was one of the highlights of my trip. Whilst I realise that sounds odd as it was a visit to a place that saw so much horror during the war, it was an incredible experience to see what occurred. On the way out to the camp, we were provided with an iPad and able to watch a 45 minute documentary about the camp and then events surrounding its history. Once there, the audio tour that was provided gave an incredible amount of detail. Whilst it is not the easiest tour to be on, it is certainly a place that people should visit and bear witness to what occurred here. Pierre was a great guide and provided a great guided tour as we left Vienna. Highly recommended!!
