An interesting place to see

Its a collection of memorabilia and photos of the history of the what happened in the past - in the Concentration Camp. Its a small one but situated in a small nice town.

I enjoyed a guided tour from Hamburg. The present site is now a memorial to the 90,000 souls (men) that perished there before and during WWII. The life expectancy was 2 months for a prisoner, which was 2 months longer that those at the death camps. Initially bricks were produced, later small arms. The site is quite large, in the... More

Visiting this concentration camp was an interesting and sobering experience, but you really need a tour guide to get the most out of it. We were there on an excursion from our Princess cruise ship, but the guided tour we paid for didn't happen.

Important sight to see when being in Hamburg. We mustn't forget the war and ask the hate. Especially today with ask that's going on in the works. Hate and violence isn't the solution.

這個集中營真的很大,不須租借語音導覽,因為有非常多的告示板,且每個告示板資訊都相當豐富,值得細細閱讀,但在開始參觀前,別忘了先拿一個園區手冊,上面有根據不同遊園時間規劃的不同參觀路線,讓你在有限的時間逛完最重要的景點!園區很大、人不多,可以好好認識德國的這段歷史。我最喜歡的是介紹納粹武裝親衛隊的那個展廳,不只認識集中營的悲慘,也好好認識到底是什麼樣的一群人創造這段恐怖的歷史。 The field is very huge. You don't need to rent the audioguide, because there are too many boards that are worth reading. Remember to grab a handbook before you start the tour. The handbook marks different tour roads which depends on different visit duration. Though it is kind of far from the city center, it is a very good... More

The Neuengamme concentration camp memorial proves to be a wonderful site for history lovers or tourists alike. It is quite difficult to get to by bus or train I assume but as we had a car it was easy for us. The camp gives a different vibe to many other camps as the function of the camp as a manufacturer...

I was once told that the birds no longer sing in Neuengamme, Auswitch and other places - well they were singing on this wonderful sunny day. Take a S21 from Hamburg Central (Hbf) to Bergedorf. At Bergedorf train station follow the signs and escalators up to the bus terminal (Yes, on top of the train station) and get the 225... More

Go to Bergedorf and get on bus 227 or 327 and see it with your own eyes. This camp was more a slave work camp which lead to many deaths, and although there were Jews in the camp, this was mainly for anyone resisting the nazi regime or the German occupation. Unfortunately we only had time for the main exhibition,... More

We visited Hamburg on a stag do and decided we should visit the memorial and we were very surprised how eerie the site is. Difficult to say it was enjoyable but we all found it very interesting and in my opinion something everyone should see in their life time to understand the atrocities that took place. Easy to reach via... More

Although most of this camp has long been demolished it is nonetheless a poignant place to visit. It is laid out as it was during the war and there are signs pointing out various areas of particular interest. It is worth seeing the film in the exhibition building which gives you a good idea of what went on here. The... More
