This was not my first concentration camp visit and yet no matter how much you prepare yourself it is always a shock. It is poignant and horrifying. The room of names left me in tears. As awful as this place is, it is important to see. Getting to Mauthausen from Vienna is not easy. You will need to take a... More

It really was worth the ride from Wien. It was the first concentration camp I ever visited, and it really has an effect on you. The entrance is free and the audioguide was 3€ (take it, it explains in detail every space in the camp). The tour took you into the spaces where the prisoners where kept, and explains every... More

The memorial is wonderfully set up and maintained. While certainly not a fun experience, I'm very glad I was able to go and am very thankful this site is kept up. There are some very intense moments. The walking tour audio is inexpensive (3€ apiece) and worth it. The museum is also very powerful. About the travel. We came from... More

This is about two hours away from Vienna and well worth the adventure. Keep in mind the stairs of death are not open during the winter. The tour takes about 2-2 1/2 hours.

This is a must to visit place! I thought this would be boring but actually is quite impressive! However, it;s quite difficult to get here without a car!

The former concentration camp is very good renovated. As a result the barracks seem not as bad as they definitely war in World War II. The museum is very interesting. Entrance is free. Outside the camp there are several monuments to remember the victims of the different countries. Inside the camp you see plaques from many different countries, also unexpected... More

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
