Husband and I have visited several memorial sites for the Holocaust. This one was quite interesting, but the site will look dull without taking the guided tour. Marcus was our guide in English; he was more knowledgeable than ANY guide with whom I've ever toured. He offered info beyond the standard script to make the time poignant and meaningful. At... More

I come to this review from the perspective of a researcher who works in the area of Holocaust studies. I spent the entire day at Mauthausen, which probably the average person may not, but there was definitely enough to learn there to fill an entire day. This includes walking around the site with the audio guide, taking the tour (in... More

Normally not a big fan of audio tours but for Mathausen it is very appropriate. It allows you to go at your own pace and give yourself a personal and emotional walk through the memorial. Ended up taking 3 hours and could have been there longer, it was very moving and brought me to tears. The audio guide is very... More

This is located on the way from Vienna to Salzburg. If you are on tour - you could break journey here and spend a minimum of an hour to absorb the essentials of this location, This was my first visit to a concentration camp - which I had only seen in movies. Very :realistic: and takes you back to those... More

We ended our trip to Europe with a visit to Mauthausen-Gusen. From the moment it came in to view, the emotions we all felt were powerful. Everyone of us walked in silence, processing the horrific history of the grounds we were walking. We were however, troubled by the school groups on field trips and the lack of respect they displayed.... More

This is somewhere I ahve felt a need to go to since first learning about concerntration camps as a teen 30 odd years ago. Finally, I made it from the other side of the planet. We came by ourselves in our rental car. it was raining, which seemed appropriate. However, we were overrun by mindless young teens on school trips.... More

Was there this winter (January). Found my own way there from Vienna to Linz and then a short taxi ride. Covered in white and with few visitors around, even the exterior had a chilling sadness about it. They didn't have guided tours in English that day so I went about on my own with the map. At the bookshop, there's... More

I have been to Mauthausen memorial on a number of occasions, with children, teenagers and adults. There is a section of the camp that is well preserved, enabling people to get an overview of the horrors that occurred there. There is commentary available in many different languages and the notices are printed in at least German and English. It is... More

German concentration camp, museum and memorial. Set on a now peaceful hill top, with lovely views, this was once the site of brutal nazi rule and extermination of peoples. The audio tour was informative, there is nothing really much really, a wall and a few huts, but a memorial park has been created with statues from various countries. A 2... More
