Mauthausen Concentration Camp Day Trip from Vienna
$171.41
Overview
Experience a poignant piece of World War II history with a day trip to Mauthausen Concentration Camp from Vienna. The former camp provides a look at the horrors perpetuated by Hitler during the war. An audio guide will provide historical background on each site as you go. Transport back to Vienna will be included when your tour finishes.
What to Expect
By the summer of 1940, Mauthausen Concentration Camp 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 the last camp complex to be liberated by the Allies.

Begin your day with a cab ride from your hotel to central Vienna to join up with your driver. Hold on to your receipt so that your cab cost can be repaid after your trip.

Climb aboard your comfortable tour vehicle, meet your friendly English-speaking tour escort and become acquainted with the history of Mauthausen Memorial during the 2,5-hour ride from Vienna. Relax as you journey through the countryside of Lower and Upper Austria.

Arrive at Mauthausen Memorial, a building that stands on the site of the former Mauthausen Concentration Camp. Grab your audio guide (available in 11 languages) and begin touring independently through the grounds. See Wiener-Graben quarry, the prisoners’ barracks, the so-called 'Stairs of Death,' SS-quarters, gas chamber, camp prison and the Mauthausen Museum for more historical background on the camp and WWII.

A range of freshly-prepared regional dishes is available for lunch at the Mauthausen Memorial's Bistrol. Afterward, climb back aboard  tour vehicle and begin the drive back to Vienna. You will be returned to the Vienna State Opera in Downtown Vienna.

just okay

This is basically someone driving to the site and letting you go on a self guided tour alone. There is no extra information given about the camp or prisoners. our guide also failed to mention that we would be going to lunch after the tour...More

Exceeded Expectations

This was one of the highlights of my trip - despite the circumstances. We had a total of 4 people in our group which made it small and intimate. Our tour guide spoke excellent English and provided us with an iPad with a video outlining...More

An important site

It was important to see this site, I and to show it to my daughters. It was a full day from Vienna. Our driver, Fleming, was well informed and pleasant.
