Have been to Dachau and to Auschwitz. I feel it is important to see places like this. So we went here as well while recently vacationing in Austria. There is always something more to learn. Each is different and just as moving. We didn't go down the steps the camp inmates had to go up with the blocks of stone... More

I had no desire to visit a camp. But we drove up there and it was compelling. So in we went and incredible it was. The buildings are restored, clean and quiet. You can reflect on what happened here without having horrific visuals overtake you. There are plaques along the outside wall commemorating who died there. Then, in beautiful tribute,... More

I saw many incredible sites in three weeks in Europe but nothing had the impact that my three hour visit to Mauthausen Camp provided. The audio guide provided detailed information and was powerful in its presentation. The self-guided tour is well organized and moves the visitor through the memorial, the camp, fields and the museum. It is a sobering walk... More

I had never heard of "Mauthausen", although I've a lot about Dachau. My wife and I went to both and Mauthausen aroused our emotions more. The slave labor camp at Mauthausen is still complete. Unlike Dachau, the buildings (e.g., sleeping quarters) have not been torn down and replaced with replicas. Although Dachau is discussed more in terms of war history,... More

We visited this memorial while we were in Austria. It is so difficult to fathom how anyone could perpetrate something like this. I learnt about this in history many years ago in school and have always wanted to visit. Take your time and reflect on what actually took place here. Make sure you take the audio tour with you as...

We found this to be a highly moving and memorable tour. It certainly was not pleasant but it was an enriching experience, increasing our understanding of what happened during the second world war. We visited Vienna for three weeks, taking in a few tours and experiencing the history and beauty of the city and surrounding area. We loved it all.... More

Firstly, let me say that we are from the UK and not Jewish. I visited here about 40 years ago. That visit has remained in my memory ever since. Therefore, when recently visiting Vienna with my husband, I was determined to return and to show him the site. It has obviously changed over the years and perhaps is slightly more... More

My hotel advised how to get here by local bus as it around 30mins from Linz.A place of great reflection.Everyone will have different experience here.In excellent condition and used as an education centre now on the horrors of war and mans' inhumanity to one another.Allow at least two hours plus travel

Visiting Mauthausen brings vividly the savagery of the systematic Nazi extermination madness. The term "labour camp" is somewhat misleading since it was not just used as a slave labour factory but also as an evil machine where prisoners were tortured, brutally punished, killed in unimaginable sadistic ways and their bodies ultimately burned in crematoria. Being there makes one almost hear... More

Well preserved death camp, with good explanations. No cost to get in and walk around. Up a steep road if you are bicycling.
