Although the entrance is free of charge, we decided to book a tour to better understand the place. Money very well spent. Our guide was a young student with excellent knowledge about the camp details. He managed to explain not only the horrible living conditions of the prisoners but also for us to understand how all this could have happened... More

As I understand it, Mauthausen wasn't a concentration camp like Auschwitz, but instead was a work camp. Still, it is clear that many atrocities occurred here and it was difficult but important to see. An important lesson in history that must not be repeated.

Mauthausen was a Nazi labor camp during WWII and it is most interesting to see a place where primarily men were brought in to work and to hear the facts of what transpired there. I don't want to give spoilers but I believe everyone should take in this site and learn from it. It is different than many other Holocaust... More

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
