As some have said the web site does not do this place justice. Long drive up through a beautiful forest. This camp seemed to be more of a work base camp than some others that were more focused on the other activities done at camps....More

A thought-provoking visit. Seeing where man committed atrocities against fellow man is a sad experience. But needs to be done to keep the memory alive. The guided tour was really well done and hit exactly the right tone. We did the tour in French but...More

This is the only German-run WWII concentration camp that was built on French soil. It's a definite must-see, because it was preserved at the time of the liberation in 1944. So most of the buildings, fences, towers, incinerator, and so on, are preserved. Of greatest...More

We weren't sure what to expect but after our visit we felt the website didn't do it justice. I have not been to other concentration camps to compare size but this seemed to be an ideal size - we spent 2-3 hours there and didn't...More

This is a beautiful location with a horrific history. I think this is one of the lesser known concentration camps but it is worth a visit. It is set on a fairly steep slope which was an additional problem for those interned here. There is...More

Beautiful drive to get there. It is hard to believe something so horrific happened in such beautiful surroundings. I am not a person that loves history but this time period intrigues me. Definitely worth the visit, but also very sad. I would not recommend it...More

We were staying in Colmar and it's a pleasant drive - hard to believe that a place that saw such atrocities is hidden away in such a beautiful landscape. I just happened to buy a guidebook in French where I read about this camp although...More

It's a scenic and easy drive from Colmar to the concentration camp. Well worth the trip to acknowledge those who suffered at the hands of evil. Most of the buildings are no longer there and the ones that are give you a feel for what...More
