This camp is very different from the other camp I visited in Dachau. Dauhau overwhelms with its horrors of the past but Flossenburg does not. It is sad, somber but very peaceful and very respectful of the military personnel who died mainly from being overworked...More

Going to Flossenburg was a truly humbly experience. Reading the information about the people who died there was also eye-opening. It is a piece of history that everyone should experience.

Over 30,000 people died at Flossenburg and it is a sombre reminder of the horrors of war. It is not as large in area as some other concentration camps, but still you get a real sense of the suffering that took place there. The camp...More

We visited on a Saturday morning and the museum was quiet. This is located about 45 mins from our home near Vilseck. It's quite easy to find and navigating here should not be a deterrent to visit. The museum is well-done and informative. I was...More
